dolphin and gwenview take ages to open

view full story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I am running Slackware 13.0, which was running perfectly fine until some time ago. Recently i started facing problems with some apps which take more than 5 minutes to open, and when opened, respond ultra slow. This behaviour i've seen in Dolphin and Gwenview yet, both being some of the frequent apps i use on my system. Other KDE apps that i use frequently, like kontact, konsole dont give any such problems. I dont remember doing any config changes in kde. The only things i distinctly remember doing is installing kdenlive and its dependencies, along with adding these lines in bashrc (HowTos)
