Description Sebastian Kügler 2011-07-14 10:00:48 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using Devel) 
OS:                Linux

Active's startup process is very slow, one reason is that too complicated startup sequence, which essentially goes like this:

plasma-desktop ; killall plasma-desktop ; plasma-tablet -graphicssystem raster

Only the last part should be necessary, but without starting and killing plasma-desktop first, plasma-tablet has problems finding the dbus and fails to start. "Something with dbus-launch" seems to be required, but I haven't found out what this would be.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
log in to Plasma Active

Actual Results:  
slow because it starts plasma-desktop first

Expected Results:  
fast :)

This is done in the plasma-tablet-config and plasma-contour-config packages, in the plasma-tablet.desktop and plasma-contour.desktop files in the Exec= line.
