View Full Version : [SOLVED] Gnome Terminal Startup Slow (11 Natty edition)

After several upgrades (from 8.xx) I noticed Gnome terminal took about 4 seconds to open an window and another 4 seconds to give me a prompt.

This is excruciating when blasting out CLI in dozens of terminals ssh'd into dozens of machines. Tabs were no different.

Fix was:

Comment out anything in ~/.bashrc that references xterm. BOOM less than 1s total to prompt.

If it's faster than I can get my mouse hand back to the keyboard to start blasting CLI, it's good enough :popcorn:

Why does this make it faster ?

There must be a reason the code is there..
