moved these 2 last posts to this thread which is more on-topic...
If you mount a large flashdisk with multiple media files (videos, photos) it takes a long time to create icons and if the pointer hovers over one of those files it will try to play a preview and freeze for quite a while. IMO a waste of resources.
that sounds a bit like an issue to report E should be efficient in every aspect and if is not, it needs to be improved (that's called uncoformist perfectionism lol), see for example my report about the slow pagers they fixed it fast, but that's probably because im very familiarized with E and I know that it should not be like that
in any case if you report it you need to give details (maybe a video like in my pager slowness report issue), the number of elements that happens ("in a dir with more than 100 videos bla bla"), etc... and maybe a proposed suggestion (thats not so easy)
about connman, is good but i dont think it can be enough good as network-manager, I mean, nm is more featured, if you see "edit configurations" it allow advanced settings like vpn, md5 password, usernames etc... which seems like universities requires these types of "username accounts" on their networks, so basically we need an internet configurator that "simply works" with everything needed
in other words: probably connman will be removed in the future because of the lack of features
