Terminal takes ~ 1 sec to load

Post by james-r »

I noticed that after installing Mint 19.2 Cinnamon, the terminal would load instantly.
Now after having synced 200 MB of files from Dropbox it takes ~1 sec or so for

Code: Select all

name@hostname
to show up on terminal.
What is the reason for this?

Please generate an overview of your system like this:
- Launch a terminal window (this is how to launch a terminal window);
- make the terminal window full screen, to avoid chopped lines;
- Copy/paste this command into the terminal:

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz
(if you type: the letter F is a capital letter)

Press Enter.

Copy/paste the output in your next message.

Strange.... A modern and powerful machine like that, shouldn't behave in that way.

You might try this:
Update Manager - panel: View - Linux kernels
Install the latest kernel of the 5.0 series. Then reboot.

When no avail, do this:
