kde menu lag, overview lag, and calendar

Postby davidbnd » 2017-09-12 03:39

when I go on the menu and type something, there is a 3 sec delay, the same goes to when I try to switch sections like from Favorites to Applications.

When I go into overview and exit from an app it would freeze for 4 sec (i can still move my mouse).

The Same goes to the calendar but it only happens one time after boot

Specs:

OS: Debian 9.1 stretch
Kernel: 4.9.0-3-amd64
CPU: Intel Core -5-3210m CPU @ 3.1GHz
GPU: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Ivybridge Mobile
RAM: 7870MiB

- open a terminal
- enter htop
- take a moment to see what it does
- now reproduce the issue, and see what's eating resources
- tell us

I saw this

/usr/bin/plasmashell --shutup

on the top of the list, it had a cpu spike
Would go between 10% -35%

I ran "gdm plasmashell"
then typed "attach <1781>"
then i got this "Illegal process-id: <1781>."

1. it's gdb, not gdm.
2. you're supposed to type the pid without the <...>

it's a long thread.
there's a LOT of stuff you haven't tried yet (or haven't told us about).

why photo? i don't understand.
it's just code, copy-pastable text.

Got this

Probably related to the problem, it wont let open the menu, or open windows from the panel, can't right click on desktop, but the hot corner still works.
After the freeze, I can't find it in htop.
I randomly can't type sometimes, but can still use mouse

After 2 or 3 times logging out and back in the freeze went away.
but still have problem with menu, calendar, and closing apps from overview.
