Firefox is opening very slow on on Cinnamon since some of the latest updates. I removed xdg-desktop-portal-gnome and now it works normal again. I notice a lot of different xdg-desktop-portal packages? Removing the xdg-desktop-portal-gnome seems to fix the issue. I’m not having this problem on Plasma only Cinnamon. I guess this package isn’t really needed? Or should some of the others be removed instead. Plasma doesn’t seem to show these packages?
Edit: These are the packages installed on Cinnamon
xdg-desktop-portal-gnome (currently removed)
Edit2: None of these xdg packages are installed on plasma?
Check the reverse dependency for them to see what in you Cinnamon is dependent on them.
xdg-desktop-portal-kde as well but perhaps you don’t have anything on your plasma requiring it.
I guess the question is do i need only one of them? Or any? I removed xdg-desktop-portal-gnome to make Firefox open properly otherwise it just takes forever.
There have been numerous reports about this causing slow-down on non-GNOME DE:s.
Only you can answer that by checking the reverse dependency for them.
pactree -r xdg-desktop-portal-xapp
… et ainsi de suite!
They all come back with cinnamon? Except xdg-desktop-portal-gnome since i uninstalled it. Does that mean they are required by cinnamon?
xdg-portal-desktop-xapp which in turn requires …
I ran it on xdg-desktop-portal-gnome
[ricklinux@eos-cinn ~]$ [ricklinux@eos-cinn ~]$ pactree -r xdg-desktop-portal-gnome
I guess this means it’s not really needed?

didnt notice any issue on my
I don’t have any on plasma but on Cinnamon Firefox started opening really slowly. So i removed this and now it works. I just wanted to be sure it’s okay.
Edit: I can see it’s needed for flatpaks.
On the contrary!
But since you have also:
You could remove the former without breaking dependencies. These being fulfilled by the latter.
Which one should i remove?
Edit: I just want Firefox to launch properly.
You don’t need
xdg-desktop-portal-gnome on non-GNOME DE:s.
Leave the other three as is.
Flatpak comes with
Plasmabut i have turned them off.
Probably i can deinstall
Flatpak? I dont know
I don’t have flatpak on my plasma?
But isn’t Cinnamon based on gnome?
Here is how it looks for me on
Discover is no longer on Kde on EndeavourOS. So i don’t have it.
Ok, I installed the complete
Plasma- pack. This explains it
I thought Cinnamon and Budgie are based on Gnome? Not exactly? Okay!
