So I have finally configured FullMonty to my preferences, and backed-up all necessary directories in case I screw up.
I have a problem on start up. When FM loads to my 'user' account, there is a lot of hard drive activity, slowing down the process. This started after the last KDE update. When the menu app finally appears, apt-cache bogs down the CPU and I have to wait 3-4 minutes until it completes.
How can I turn off apt-cache so it doesn't automatically go through this process on start up?
