Windows redraw very slowly when you move them, i.e. you move window and it redraws when you passed about half of the screen. Everything except that works fine as usual. Maybe anyone has any ideas what could happen?I have OpenSuse 11.3 with KDE 4.4.4, Radeon HD 4870 (proprietary drivers, but i've installed it long ago and it's likely not the problem).
I'm using KDE Version 4.4.00 on OS11.2 all my browsers (konqueror, firefox, chrome) webpages loads painfully slowly on vista same connection, same machine is loading is faster. I did not notice this in OS11.1 on same machine.I tried disable IPv6 in boot and in firefox but it did not improve situation significantly. I still get long looking up of dns time after time.Am I "paranoid" or is there some way I can address this this slow loading issue?
redrawing windows in KDE is very, very sow (since 4.4 or so I guess, but maybe it was always like this). When I switch to a desktop running Kopete and Amarok, it takes like 2-3 seconds to redraw the applications. GTK apps are faster to redraw, although far from ideal. This happens both with the effects enabled as well as disabled. When the effects are enabled, it's faster, but still very slow.
When switching apps or desktops in Gnome with Compiz running, it's almost instantaneous... I don't think it's because of any particular effect like Blur, because I've disabled them all, though the compositing is up (e.g. the bar is transparent, but all other effects are off in KWin). On the other hand I have plenty of effects enabled in Compiz and it's still ways much faster.
I have ATI Radeon X1200 integrated card, using the radeon driver 18.104.22.168 (I'm not sure whether is it from experimental or Sid, but I don't think it matters, since the older versions were slow the same) without any particular configuration from my side (i.e. no xorg.conf).On my other computer with either quite powerful NVidia card or an Intel card the performance is the same in KWin and Compiz...
When I run it, the window shows up but Qt doesn't draw in the background. I end up with phantoms from windows behind it: URL...The window will draw the background correctly when I resize it -- MOST of the time. And sometimes there will be a noticeable delay between resizing and drawing in the window.Am I missing some libraries? Is this a bug? Maybe there's something else I can look up to find a solution?
I'm running sid, my window manager is fluxbox, and my video card is a GeForce FX Go5200 64M.I should note that this works perfectly well on another computer I have that's running sid as well.
I've compiled a basic Qt app as given in this tutorial: [URL]... When I run it, the window shows up but Qt doesn't draw in the background.

Yes im refering to Windows Degrade and how over time windows just running will degrade and start causing errors. DLLs go missing and bizzare things. Ive seen wierd things happen on a windows machine that is dedicated to one function. Well to my point, recently I have been having many linux issues, not like normal or anything throughout the years I have experimented with linux though.
1)entering fullscreen on VMware crashes linux sometimes (no Ctrl+Alt or Ctrl+Alt+F2 ect) 2)using a different monitor haults the virtual machine while other monitors do not (I have 4) 3)Java apps freeze and require moving the window offscreen (below the screen) to redraw 4)general linux freezing 5)glitch with xinerama that repeatedly teleports mouse between two monitors causing the system to be unusable (no Ctrl+Alt+F2 or anything either)
At first I thought they were all related to VMware but they may not be. I run VMware everyday for my slingbox and light EXE-ing when wine isnt an option. So I may not be asking for fixes to all these problems but whats going on? Ive seen linux installs last years and believed linux to not degrade.
My openSUSE's working unstable and very slowly! Wireless is starting very late.It appears 10min later after i loggen in,and wants me to enter wireless password.This windows is showing up so late,and I can't connect internet before it shows up.
I find xcompmgr more than adequate for making a desktop look pretty modern, and I don't like the more extravagentCompiz gimmicks - but there is one thing that irritates when using xcompmgr which someone here might have worked round.
Rounded window borders don't draw and redraw properly when using the Terminal (gnome-terminal and the LXDE and Xfce ones) or system monitor and moving them from their default place. You get this little white botch at the corners. I'm not massively technical and I'm ambivalent about how much more I want to learn as I have plenty of creative outlets already, but I would like to solve this. Somehow xcompmgr is treating these programs as a different class? It's capable of drawing the window borders properly as it is just these two programs that get botched. Possibly this doesn't get noticed as maybe people usually use xcompmgr with openbox and LXDE and their square window borders. I did do a search but there was nothing matching what I saw.
I'm running Vim 7.0 on Debian Etch. The system is between 2-3 years old. Over the past week or so, when I open vim, the document opens very slowly -- on the order of 6-7 seconds... I ran 'time vim', then exited the document as quickly as I could (I figure it probably took less than a second to type ':x<enter>')How do I figure out what changed to cause this problem? It's not outside the realm of possibility that I installed something on the system that caused this, although I never noticed a correspondence between installation and the slowdown in vim. I'm not even exactly sure what I've installed over the last week.
After a period of time, the gnome nautilus responds very slowly and occupy high CPU and memory resource. when I open a folder, I have to wait for several seconds to see its response But there is no such problem under KDE environment.
In Karmic, Places has stopped working. It just thinks for a minute, then stops without opening the requested location or giving any error message. Also, Open Office Presentation, which failed during a lecture, forcing me to boot Vista and show images one by one. But my first problem was that I can't get my Airplus modem to work under Ubuntu at all. Others have had the same problem, with various awkward workarounds that I can't get to work. I wanted to remove Karmic and load Jaunty, in the hopes that I can get my Airplus to work. I am in Russia spending the summer on the dacha near St. Petersburg (no phone, so I use a cell-based service called Skylink for internet contact. I am a newbie to Ubuntu, Linux in general, am not a technical user at all, that is, do not know any programming languages.
I need Places to move data from various folders under Karmic to an external drive so I can get rid of Karmic without losing the data. Can I use commands in the terminal to move data?I really, really don't want to go back to Windows. Can anyone help me get my files off to a safe place so I can try a different version of Ubuntu?
Firefox is running really slowly for me. It seems it's accessing the hard drive constantly (as seen through System Monitor).I'm running 10.04If I start Thunderbird and Firefox invariably the disk drive light just keeps flashing for minutes and the Firefox screen gets "grayed out" and everything just slows way down. Often I just throw the power switch to shut the computer off.
I run hardy heron on my laptop. I wished to remove the graphical login so I removed gdm.Now I can boot without graphics, and run startx when I wish to start x. I like this behavior. However it takes a very long time, I believe longer than using graphical login, to start gnome. It takes 45 seconds between running startx and getting a fully logged-in desktop.1. how can I figure out what is taking so long and fix it2. what if I want to boot KDE instead, which I have installed but almost never use(I don't know how to make startx boot kde instead)
I have a 320 g.b hard drive for a Ubuntu and a 500 g.b Windows XP. I haven't used XP in a while because well..its windows. Anyway, I wanted to go back to the windows XP side because I needed to do some editing on sony vegas. I restarted the computer and tried starting windows and everything in the system32 folder is totally gone!I don't know what to do because I don't want to have to do a fresh install and I don't have enough space to bring everything over to the ubuntu side.
I can't find 90% of my music when I search for it in the folders. (On the ubuntu linux side). When I go into rythmbox, my music is slowly being deleted (Like my Joe satriani, Crystal planet). What is funny is that rythmbox can see a lot of my music (not all) but not the folder program. Its really weird, when I take the pure locations of the music (that rythmbox can see), and copy them, then go into folders and paste them into the search at the top, they come up. But, when I click on the up button (in folders) they don't show the folder I was just in.If some one can help me with:
1. Knowing to fix windows XP without having to reinstall anything. 2. Knowing how to save my folders from being randomly deleted.
I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 and I was messing around with some settings and all that. I went to System > Preferences > Appearance > Visual Effects. I then proceeded to enable the "Extra" option. I was prompted to restart my computer for the effects to take place. Now it is running somewhat slow, for example when I open up Firefox, or any other program, it loads very slowly. I went back to change the Visual Effects back to "None" but it was already on that option, I don't know why. I went to my Hardware Drivers and I didn't have the recommended graphics driver on, so I put the recommended on and that had no help.
There are quite a few threads in this forum on how to convert a DJVU file into a PDF (among which this thread the instruction of which I followed.) I converted a DJVU file by printing it to a PS file from the Document Viewer. Then I printed again the PS to file into a PDF from that same application. The second phase took more than 24 hours and resulted in a scanned PDF of less than 500 pages with a size of 315 MB! I have many books of more pages which come down to 1 MB only. What happened in the process to make it so damn slow and so inefficient? Is there a good alternative (not ps2pdf because it provides the same result)?
I've been using Hardy Heron and linux mint 7 for quite a while now and was very happy with both until the last month or so.For some reason the computer seems to run much more slowly than it did. I deleted the linux mint because I was only testing it, but Hardy has been my stable (trusted) distro for quite some time.I've actually booted into xp to write this because Hardy had got too slow.I've spent the day downloading Ubuntu 10.04 and Linux mint 9, but both failed to install when I tried.
I hope this is the right forum for this. I downloaded Blender today to try my hand at making some 3D graphics. I have used it in the past on a windows machine and it ran smoothly. This time I have downloaded it onto a computer with similar specs but it runs very slowly. The program is laggy and slow to respond to both keyboard and mouse input. When I checked the system monitor it said that I am using 50% of my cpu and 1/6th of my memory running both Blender and Firefox(to write this post). The machine is running no hotter than usual and the fans do not seem to be being stressed at all.
Does anyone know what could be causing the program to run so slowly?
I'm running a Minecraft server off of a dell T110 with Ubuntu 10.1 installed, as I haven't had a chance to install Natty yet. The problem is, it's running very very slowly, past the point where I could say it's the hardware's issue.
I have an intel xeon (2.4ghz quad core) in there, with 2gb of RAM. 2gb isn't much, but the computer runs slowly even when the MC server itself is off.
I'm talking super super slow, like, the cursor doesn't even show up all the time. It disappears frequently and things take a while to render/open, a site like facebook takes about 20 seconds to completely load.
This is my first ubuntu install, so I'm kind of new to it. The only problem/solution I could think is that I may have installed the 32bit version on a 64bit processor. I don't think I did, butttt that's the only thing that occurs to me
I have Western Digital 1 TB external HDD. I had slackware 13 and it could copy data to it with speed around 30 MB/s (copy from machine to HDD) and it was cool. It's usb 2.0 as KInfoCenter says. But now in fedora 13, it's like 1 MB/s or even less (KInfoCenter still says usb 2.0). Any special mount option to set in fuseblk to speed it up? I mean something like blksize or like that?
/dev/sdc1 on /media/My Book type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096)
when i used firefox there was a up and down arrow at the side of a web page so i could scroll slowly up or down,i am now using peppermint ice and the default browser is chromium which i like but there is no up or down arrow,does anyone know if there is an extension to put the arrows there?
i'm using kernel-generic-smp-22.214.171.124, i even rebuilt the rp-pppoe package but it's the same thing. same behaviour was also in the previous release using kernel 126.96.36.199 due the broken forcedeth in that version of kernel, but on ArchLinux using the same version of kernel works normally.
I am currently using slackware-current with fluxbox is my window manager. I aim to have a light weight environment. But xpdf renders pdf very slowly. Are there any one having this issue before. As alternative, i have to install wine and use Sumatra PDF.
