KDE, some program take more than 2 minutes to show up

Hello,
Sorry I don't have much of details. Some time when  I start kate, dolphin or kdesu kate there's a long delay before the window appear.
I don't have idea where to look for logs.
Any idea?

You can look for logs in ~/.xsession-errors

I've noticed the same problem with Dolphin starting some days ago, sometimes Dolphin takes a few minutes to start. But it doesn't happen every time, haven't found the cause yet.

NETWORK SETTINGS!!

It totally sounds like a hostname problem in your network settings.

Make sure your host name is correct in the "/etc/hostname" file and that the host name is also in your "/etc/hosts" file next to "127.0.0.1".

BAM! Fixed! big_smile

...right?

Re: KDE, some program take more than 2 minutes to show up

$ cat /etc/hosts
#
# /etc/hosts: static lookup table for host names
#

#<ip-address>   <hostname.domain.org>   <hostname>
127.0.0.1       localhost.localdomain   localhost
::1             localhost.localdomain   localhost

Bold faced or underlined or both?

I've been experiencing the same behavior with dolphin and konqueror immediately after logging into kde. It started after installing kde 4.12 so I'd suspect it was introduced with the new version. I'm not seeing this delay when I use razor-qt.

I done as suggested, but the fact happening very seldom
I suspect that nepomuk is the guilty.

Re: KDE, some program take more than 2 minutes to show up

I did some tweaking when I started using KDE. Couldn't find the page I used then, but this page
has the same information regarding akonadi and nepumok.
