[Solved] Nautilus very slow since new installation of Buster

Postby Azrael » 2019-07-31 14:07

Hi guys,

I recently did a new install of Debian Buster, except reusing the /home partition, because I got a new motherboard+ram (i5-9400F/DDR4 2666Mhz from the old i5-2500k/DDR3 1333Mhz).

I notice when I copy files, save files from Chromium/Firefox, or open files. There's some significant lag for some reason, no issues previously on Debian Stretch.

I'm running
i5-9400F
16GB RAM
8GB Swap
2TB Toshiba 7200rpm on EXT4 for both root and home partitions with a 500MB FAT Boot/EFI
Nvidia GTX950 with nonfree Nvidia Drivers
Debian Buster amd64 with Gnome 3.30.2 (wayland disappeared after a few days of use for some reason, can't find it in the login).

Code: Select all
time ls


Gives output for the home directory as:

Code: Select all
real   0m0.004s
user   0m0.001s
sys   0m0.004s


I did some googling and I deleted cache files (it was a few gigabytes in size) of the tracker and it helps slightly but I feel there's probably something I missed.

Any ideas?

Do you still have this problem if you test with a new user and a clean ${HOME}?

Sometimes old dot configs can cause problems.

Yes it does.

Oh man, this is embarrassing.

I decided to open syslog and tried reproducing it.

I got this:
Code: Select all
gnome-shell[16533]: Error adding children to desktop: Not enough place at monitor 0


I disabled the extension, it everything became speedy again.

I guess, if I want to use the desktop again, I'll have to clean it up.

My bad.
