There seems to be lag whenever I start typing something in dashboard search, looking for an application. This could potentially be very fast, like typing Win "dwar" enter, runs dwarf fortress. But there's a lag while typing "dwar", starting on the letter "d".
I believe this lag is caused by the system fetching the icons. I'd like to disable this function and have the dashboard be text-only.
Note: the hud only has to show one icon at a time and look how much faster that is? It must be the icons.
edit: Note that I'm currently running Ubuntu 2D.
