[OPEN] MidnightCommander

Post by chrisros » Fri Apr 06, 2018 3:06 pm

Hi
I use a lot filetext manager MidnightCommander (pacman -S mc).
When I start the application in terminal. The filemanager start after 4-5 second. Have not seen this delay in other distros.
Any hints why it takes so long before the filemanager start?

I have a delay of about 7-10 seconds.
I would think that is normal since I have never used it.
Your guess is as good as mine.

Hi Erik
Thanks for your reply even if this is a minor issue.
Interesting is that when I log in terminal mode as superuser, (sudo -i).
The MidnightCommander file manager starts immediately as expected.
Perhaps the search path to the application not correct or longer.
I like Midnight Commander in Linux environment as I used Norton Commander in Dos/Windows period.
