slow right click menu
 
Mine too. But it is 11.10. I notice it is slower than 10.10. Could be the hardware is a little too old. It is P3 550mHz with 1GB memory only.

Subject: [xubuntu-users] slow right click menu

fresh install of Xubuntu 12.04 and* when I right click on the desktop
the menu takes 1 second to show up.

If I deselect* the option to show the "applications menu" however
the menu opens up instantly.


Anybody else noticed this? I thought it was a problem solved long ago.

slow right click menu
 
I hadn't noticed it until your email but the behaviour is repeated on my machine.

Have you noticed any change in stability after deselecting the option to show the applications menu on right click? Since deselecting it doesn't stop the menu from appearing on right click I'm curious if there's a reason that option is there.

Thanks for pointing it out-I've deselected and plan to continue with it that way unless there's some reason not to.

I see a delay the *first* time during a session that I right-click on
the desktop. After that, the menu is faster (it's probably cached).

Thanks everyone for the confirmation.
I haven't noticed any instability after deselecting the option to display "app menu", just missing functionality obviously.
Most importantly it's the slowness that's bothering me.


I filed a bug here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xfdesktop4/+bug/1005087
Back me up guys! Thanks.

Yes, I just timed it, takes four or five seconds to appear after
clicking (on a quad core system with 8Gb memory).

However, it's only the first time that it's slow (or at least the first
time after a long idle), right clicking again results in almost instant
appearance of the menu.
