I have a very interesting problem...when i start Dolphin it will take up to 7 seconds to become properly responsive whenever i first "see" a folder.

So when i for example, config the startup location of dolphin to be a folder that does NOT contain ANY other folder...But textfiles, pictures and videos etc. etc. it will start fine. But as soon as i change into a different folder that contains ATLEAST one new folder. It will hang for 7 seconds, and THEN becomes responsive again.

Krusader and Nautilus do not have this problem on my system. Also i made a new user and tested it there, there it works perfectly fine.

I deleted dolphinrc in ~/.config and the dolphin folder in ~/.local/share. I also deleted the ~/.cache

I know that my inxi says i'm partially upgraded. I already tested it, upgrading does NOT change anything of that behaviour. I don't want to upgrade because some packages are buggy when i upgrade and i want to wait a few days.

Are there any ways for me to get logs of what is happening with my dolphin? When i start in the terminal i don't get any logs or verbose information. It just says "dolphin" and takes however long it takes to load and that's it.

I've just found this KDE bug.
Probably it's not your case (or they did not realize the "folder with folder" aspect).
Just thought you could try deleting also the file mentioned in the last comment...

Thanks for helping!

Sadly this did not solve it. I saw what it did and dolphin instantly updated my places. But the load up time remains the same.

Also, upgraded my system - Issue is still there.

interestingly enough...i see that Kate also takes that long to load up..Regardless of opening it empty or opening a file

If a new user account works properly, then it is likely some change to your current users configuration, or perhaps some software you installed that is responsible for the delay.

That i assume aswell...the question is now how i can find out what exactly is the problem :smiley:

Check journal logs.
For convenience, before starting dolphin for the first time in your fresh session, run in terminal:

journalctl --user -f
# or (for more info)
journalctl -f

Check if this happens for an existing empty folder, as well.
IIRC dolphin must have some relevant settings, like how to read folder/contents size. Try some changes in settings.

I found it with journalctl -f

I'm not very good with logs that's why i haven't thought about where exactly i can get what logs. But with that i found the issue. And it's ridicilous...

I use Portmaster; I really like this app. But it blocked some network connections for smb from 127.0.0.1 when i started dolphin....So i allowed this IP and now Dolphin starts perfect again.

This is ridicilous...

Thanks so much for helping a dumbass like me out!
