Hi there,

if I disabled it :-) And what's worse: can't find how to renable...

Could someone help me?

Hi Lars,
  Sorry to disappoint you but... as long as I've been with the project
(>0.45), I don't remember we ever had a splash screen! :)

Ciao,

If you click on help>about inkscape
you get a splash screen.

Yeah, thank you that wasn't what I was looking for.

Would like some kind of info of "Inkscape is starting". I often happen
to click the start button twice because I'm not sure if I clicked
correct.

Instead, I think we should work on getting Inkscape to start fast again!

This has been the projects general goal (basically, splash screens
mean you did it wrong is the attitude). Jon's icon caching and
Krzysztof's cairo work both helped this immensely, but we still have a
ways to go.

In my latest go at trying to figure out what's taking the most time a
significant chunk of it related to fontconfig calls. Perhaps loading
the UI prior to us doing our fontconfig stuff could yield results that
would be noticeable. I have a callgrind (valgrind) output if you're
interested in checking it out... it appears that WinCacheGrind would
be the win32 utility to check it out.

Josh
