Hi

I use KDE. In recent weeks, GTK applications (eg Firefox, LibreOffice) have become very slow to open a file dialogue. There is no feedback either, you just need to sit and wait and eventually the dialogue pops up.

It seems to be scanning disks (and possibly network) or somesuch.

Subsequent file opens are faster.

It didn't have this issue in the past.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks, Ian

According to this thread over at Manjaro forums it could have something to do with network shares. The 'solution' to a couple of users seems to have been to uninstall gvfs, but I'm sure there's a better solution to the problem.

Of course there is a better solution in gentoo:
remove the offending network protocol by removing the USE Flag.
It seems (from the linked thread) either samba or nfs could help.
Of course the best solution would be to fix gvfs so that it doesn't block the GUI when there are issues with the availability of the network.

There might be an even better solution using the xdg-desktop-portal-kde package:
