RE: Startup problem
Hi,
my startup problem is related to a conflict with the antivirus PC Tools Spyware. I never found a workaround. The startup is strongly slowed when load the script-fu. Any tips for me?

RE: Startup problem
Use another software, or find a way to disable its snooping on .scm files?

Otherwise, how many script/fonts/brushes etc have you installed beside the standard stuff?

Not too many scripts.

RE: Startup problem
What makes you think it's the scripts? It can be a rogue plugin (.exe if you are on windows). once had a .exe copied by mistage in Gimp's plugin directory. Since Gimp calls all the executables it finds there at startup to let them register, and since that exe took a while before relinquishing control, my Gimp startup got very slow until I removed it. Using
Code:
gimp-console --verbose
may give you more information on what Gimp is doing when it starts (and where things seem to get slow)

RE: Startup problem
Hi,
starting with the verbose option I can confirm that it's script-fu that slow the process.
This the row in which it requires at least 15 seconds to go on:
"Starting extension: 'extension-script-fu'"

This inside this part of the output:

RE: Startup problem
Ok, what scripts are installed? And if you disable your anti-virus things are better?

RE: Startup problem
Thanks for your help, before anything.
what do you mean exactly with scripts? Under the directory "C:\Programmi\GIMP-2.0\share\gimp\2.0\scripts" there are 101 objects ".scm".
A strange thing, some months ago there was a huge difference with or without antivirus, today no difference, almost 30second for GIMP to start-up.

This is the list of the scripts:

RE: Startup problem
30 seconds would not be excessive depending on system. My own Gimp start in 15s (first start) or 6 seconds (restarts, with files still in the filesystem cache) on a quite decent laptop (7200rpm disk). But this is on Linux with a good filesystem, I would expect a Windows machine to be somewhat slower. But it also depends on brushes/fonts/gradients installed.
