Subject: Re: The KDE Splash Progress Bar...
I just noticed that when the sixth stage is not
executed, then the audio volume widget does not appear
in the system tray.
Logging out and back in again caused stage six to run
and the audio volume widget appeared, as it is
configured to do.
See the thread "long delays on kde startup". Running "systemctl stop
firewalld" before logging in stops the long pause in the login slider for
me. Not sure why yet.
