    Re: To Nautilus or not to Nautilus : Ain’t Nautilus too slow (Score: 0)

    I have a small gnumeric spreadsheet sitting on my desktop. In kde, it comes up in less than 2 seconds. In nautilus (for me), it takes 10-20 seconds. Perhaps one explanation could be that because I don’t use nautilus/konq often, that it all swaps out (for nautilus) but not konq?

    I kinda grew tired of gmc. I ran efm for quite a while when it was under heavy development with Enlightenment and really liked it. Since efm is pretty much done for the time being, I decided to give Nautilus a shot…

    It does look great but it’s sloooow. I thought, “Man, when I upgrade my box to an Athlon 1.4ghz with 256+ RAM, this would be GREAT !!”. Nonetheless, it’s since been removed from my too-slow AMD K6-450/128mb RAM machine… I do have a Matrox G400/16ms video card…

    It looks like an ‘editor’ here mentioned dragging and dropping files related to mp3s/wavs/etc. The debian package for Nautilus does depend on libcdparanoia0 (>= 3a9.8-1). Why ?? I don’t know…

    my main complaint with nautilus is that it is painfully slow and resource hungry when used in a multi-monitor type setup. On my dual monitor setup (with xinerama enabled, running at 2560×2048 (1280×1024 on each head)), Dual PIII-450’s, 512MB RAM, 2,.4.12-ac3 + pre-emptive kernel patches, etc, it takes forever to open the desktop window, and an eternity to render the background. Opening any other file browser window after this is almost just as painful.Nautilus is far, far away from being anywhere close to acceptible for everyday use…
