bearable, but very noticable). The biggest offender is font drawing: Xft
is a rather slow design already and the (very good!) i18n features of gtk+2
seem to cost even further cycles.
It helps to a) avoid antialiasing (small effect) b) use x fonts (big
Also, if you use a theme of some kind, try wether not using one will
improve your rendering. In my experience, even a simple theme engine can
make rendering much slower.
There might be other slowdowns, but I think fonts and themes are the
predominant offenders that make gtk+2 so slow.
