Re: [K12OSN] Disable nautilus at icewm startup and very slow system performance.



To turn off loading nautilus in Ice, start up the GDM Configurator, choose
the Expert settings under Options, select the Login Sessions tab, and
under Available Sessions window, select IceWM.  The main window will show
you what scripts are run when Icewm starts, including the line that calls
Nautilus.  Comment out or delete that line, and no more Nautilus on
startup.  I did this on my home system ('cause my hardware is old & slow),
and now it takes only two seconds from when I login to the point where Ice
is up & running and ready to go.  With Nautilus loading it took about 45
seconds, an eternity.  I should add that I'm running k12ltsp version
2.0.1, and this may have moved in other versions.  Nevetheless, I think
I'll make a wiki on this, as using Icewm is a great way to get fast
performance on old systems, but the default loading of Nautilus bogs that
down and may color users perceptions of ltsp, and I suspect a lot of
people might be interested in this.
