Mint 19.1 Problem

On Mint 19.1 Audacity v.221, 222 and 230 all lag on launch. Any ideas what is causing it to take so long to start??

I think the lack of response indicates that no-one else has this problem.
I don’t see this problem on Ubuntu or Mint.

Perhaps you have a huge number of LADSPA / LV2 plug-ins installed and it is taking Audacity a while to scan the plug-in paths :confused:

Seems someone has the same problem on windows. I downloaded the windows version and run it through wine and it loads immediately. I cannot be the only one with this problem.
