Does Obsidian take a really long time to startup for anyone else?
It takes me 7 (seven whole giant) seconds to open an Obsidian window.
I get pummeled with this 7 seconds every time I startup the application, but also when I want to open another vault. Basically anytime I have to open another Obsidian window.
Here’s the laptop I’m using.
- Dell XPS 13
- CPU: 11th Gen Intel(R) Core™ i5-1135G7 @ 2.40GHz
- Memory: 16GiB
- GPU: TigerLake-LP GT2 [Iris Xe Graphics]
- OS: Arch Linux 5.18.15-arch1-1
- DE: Gnome 40 on Wayland
Technically, I’m installing from: AUR (en) - obsidian-appimage but that just downloads the AppImage file. The results are the same if I execute the app image directly.
$ ./obsidian-appimage-0.15.6.AppImage 2022-08-04 16:43:57 Loading main app package /tmp/.mount_obsidi48E6mo/resources/obsidian.asar Updates disabled.

I have 1 plugin installed:
I tried disabling it, but the startup time is unaffected.
I have 500 markdown files.
GPU acceleration is on by default. I tried disabling that, but nothing seems to have changed.
I always remember Obsidian being slow to startup, but I’m finally starting to get really annoyed with it.
