- Pantheon Shell Loading So Slow 2 answers
After the first login after booting, the desktop takes about a minute or two to show up, and I can only see the mouse and the desktop background. No dock, programs, or applications. I am using a 7200 2tb Segate harddrive, a ryzen 5 1400, and a gtx 1060 3gb with NVIDIA drivers.
