Ubuntu – Ubuntu 12.10 slow start of applications


Some applications on Ubuntu 12.10 starts very slow. I mean the time between click on app icon and first show on screen.

For example VLC player takes at least 15 seconds.

Is there any way how to speed it up?

  • To make program loading faster, install the preload program, which preloads programs using an algorithm to guess which program you're using next. It may sound bad but it's actually quite efficient.

    Install it through the sudo apt-get install preload in a terminal.
