Before I started playing with conky and bash, which involved creating and editing:
- - .conkyrc; and
- - .bashrc
the splash:'xfce with mouse' flew by so quickly as to be near sub-liminal.
Now, I get to look at the cute little guy for about 3-4 seconds.
Question: Is it possible that those two new config files could have slowed X's start up to such an extent? (ie:close to 1000%?)
