Slow Image Viewers
I am with Mandrake 10.0 Official with KDE and I've been with Linux over six months now. Most of the first steps I have done myself, but I have no idea how to solve this.
I have tried several image viewer programs like gthumb, gqview, xnview, flphoto... I tried both installing them from an RPM as well as compiling them from the source. Each of them appears to be quite slow, openning an average 1Mb JPEG from 3 to 20 seconds. When I boot win$, ASDSee opens these files immediatelly, without any noticeable delay. I cannot believe that win$ could be faster than Linux.
My machine is not a beast - Duron 700MHz only, but other applications work quite well, including video players like totem or mplayer.
Your help will be highly appreciated.
