Evince is very slow to load

Evince is taking a lot of time to load (1+ min) on my Manjaro laptop, I did some digging and found that the package xdg-desktop-portal-gtk might be a culprit (link) I tried to get some info for this package and found this on my system.

I am not sure if it is safe to remove this package or how else I should solve this problem.

Nope! That was an issue 3 years ago on Ubuntu 18 … Please see announcements:
