Cure for sluggishness on Hardy


When starting a new program on, for example KUbuntu 8.04, there is a delay of several seconds. This can be caused by SCIM -- which is a multi-language keyboard input protocol -- not loading. Check your system logs. If this is the problem, try as root:


apt-get remove scim-qtimm scim-bridge-client-qt4 scim-bridge-client-qt scim-bridge-client-gtk scim-bridge-agent skim scim-modules-socket libskim0 libscim8c2a `
