Will look into it, thanks.

I guess that's related to fontconfig/pango which GTK2 is using.
First time an GTK2-application is running, it's going to create a
font-cache. Maybe this precompiled font-cache could be provided within
the image, avoiding the creation of it on every NanoNote running an
gtk2-app the first time.

I wasn't aware of that file (/etc/banner), seems to be sth.
like /etc/motd(?). Maybe we can link in somehow /etc/VERSION to avoid
having the version hardcoded in multiple files?
Xiangfu - according git log you added /etc/banner - what do you think?
