Devuan Chimaera LXQT is slow to respond once desktop is fully present

I have had enough of my current Linux install, so I have spun up a collection of VM's to see which ones I could use long term.

So I have Chimaera nstalled as Cinnamon, Mate, LXQT, Ghost BSD, Trisquel, and some others. They all have 1 core, 8Gb of Ram, 80Mb of Video to emulate a similar fairly heavy workload.

The LXQT version takes about 4 secs to come up according to the dmesg logs:

root@devuanC:~# dmesg | grep -i "error||warning|fail|segfault|fatal"

That is fine, and comparable to the other VM's

The desktop comes up and is fully decorated at about that time, BUT it takes at least another 10-20 secs before the mouse is able to select anything, eg start menu.

Any ideas what or where I should be looking for that delay just in the LXQT version?

Once that initial delay is over it is then quite snappy, faster than cinnamon for sure.

Hello. Just check

.xsession-errors

file (in /home/yourusername/ dir). If I'm not mistaken, the problem lies with the default keyboard keys...and more specifically to keybinding to show desktop. Just delete it, or assign to another one.


What economists call over-production is but a production that is above the purchasing power of the worker, who is reduced to poverty by capital and state.

Now I will be looking up which files set these keybindings.

I renamed the .xsession-errors file and rebooted, it does take about 20 secs to wake up, and generates an 8k file and the first errors are about dbus and wanting to start systemd!!!

dbus-update-activation-environment: systemd --user not found, ignoring --systemd argument

dbus-update-activation-environment: setting GTK_MODULES=gail:atk-bridge                            

the next bit of going wrong seems to be:

So that is the next things to google for.
