I've installed BL6 on an old laptop to test it out - it works very well and is fast, many thanks. Leafpad though takes ages to load - much longer than heavyweight apps like Chromium or Thurnderbird. I've tried reinstalling to no avail. So I've replaced it with Mousepad from the repository (which is based on Leafpad), and that loads instantly. Mousepad is very good, with extras like a toolbar. Thanks again Ylee, Stefan, and all the devs for BL6!
Apparently leaf pad has been having a few different issues. Ylee fixed one (truncating text when copying). Maybe ylee might know what’s going on here. I’ll see if I can replicate it when I finish work.
That is very strange jollyroger. Leafpad opens almost instantly on all machines I have and in my VMS. Trying to debug an issue I can not duplicate is naturally rather difficult. Do you know how to debug this or provide any information that would provide a clue as to why? Any other users have this same issue?
I updated the forum theme in the repos. No more gtk errors in the terminal. I am hoping this is the cause of the slow launch speed for some users. Oddly enough leafpad launched fast with these errors for me.
