I am running Endeavour OS with i3wm. Programs, except the terminal, take an extremely long time to start. I have tried everything now. Promising was to boost GTK in the xinitrc file, but unfortunately without success.
The last idea left is that i3wm has problems with my processor. I have an AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX with Radeon Graphics (16) @ 3.300GHz in a UM690 from Minisforum.
However, I could not find anything about Ryzen processors and i3wm. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks a lot!
Thank you for pointing this out. Picom seems to be the problem. I copied the example.picom.conf to picom.conf and enabled it in the config file of i3wm. Various changes in picom.conf did nothing.
But if I just type ‘pkill picom’ in the terminal, after that everything runs fast and fine. I then tried to delete picom completely, but picom is not found then, although the path is shown at pacman -F or yay -F. What can I do?
