much more settings than my wife. Almost all she has done is changed the
background picture and maybe the windowmanager theme and that's it. I have
added some menu items to the foot some time ago, but later I have undone
I would like to find out what I have done that my foot menu opens so
slowly. Is there a way to wipe out all my menu customisations without
loosing all the other gnome settings I've changed ?
The way I'd detect the slowness is to get a notebook and undo one
customization at a time, writing down your changes so that when you
find what speeds you up, you can redo everything else.
