UpdateInTerminal opens very slowly

UpdateInTerminal opens konsole very slowly it takes about 5-10 seconds …
I’ve already updated the mirror list, but that doesn’t change anything.

sudo pacman -Syyu

thanks for reply!

I just wanted to see what drivers you had installed for Nvidia. I run kde and no issues. Is it konsole opening slow? Or is it the updating that is slow to start?

Edit: What other software have you installed on kde?

nvidia-dkms, v-box-dkms … konsole opens fast also a direct update command works fast
I only see the delay when I click UpdateInTerminal, the issue started about 3 days ago

Okay but when you click update in a terminal it opens konsole. So is it slow to open console? Or is it just slow to start the update?

yes, it takes 5-10 sec. before konsole opens
it seems to me that a connection to an update server is very slow

What countries are you selecting for your mirrors? Are you also selecting the number of mirrors to use?

There is an eos-downgrade package that enables you to downgrade eos packages from the eos repo. You could install it and downgrade the welcome package and see if that makes any difference? I don’t know the reason why this would be happening otherwise? :thinking:

only germany was selected, I have added belgium, france and downgraded welcome to 3.17.31-1 afterwards, so far no improvement …
the delay is also noticeable when opening welcome

I experience this on Cinnamon as well, with intel drivers for graphics. It’s the opening of the terminal from the Welcome app that is slow for me. If I open a terminal from the Taskbar then it’s fast. I don’t think it’s mirrors that is the problem because if i run paru manually it also goes fast.

If I enter the command directly in konsole there is also a delay

UpdateInTerminal --nt


sudo pacman -Syyu

works without delay

Hmm, I can’t replicate the issue either on Plasma and Xfce (both bare metal installs) but I don’t have Nvidia onboard. Perhaps @manuel can shed some light on this?

was 6 days ago the last change to u-i-t …

But @ricklinux and I don’t have that delay the others described, the terminal (and welcome) opens immediately.
They are talking about the opening of the terminal window, not the update process itself.

well I have the issue for about that sort of time now…I think.

i3 :wink:
As far as i understand this is having the lag? opening UpdateInTerminal from menu?


means downgrade eos-bash-shared?
