KDE4 doesn't cope well with pre 180 Nvidia drivers. There is a 180+ driver in the sid-reps. Try to install that one, maybe that will help?H.S. wrote:Hello, Has anybody been playing around with the new KDE we got a few days ago in Sid? The graphics are nice, but looks like the GUI is not as fast or responsive as the older one. This is on a AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5600+ with 2 GB of RAM and GeForce 8600 Nvidia card. On this kind of a machine, the GUI should *not* have been sluggish. I really hope the KDE people have not pulled a Vista their uses! :) BTW, plugging a card reader and inserting a CF card caused KDE to hang. If this repeats, I will file a bug. That desktop window which shows all the folders/files on one's desktop? That kind of appears to hand if I work on some of the folders there and also on a terminal. Any other experiences worth sharing?From the past several days' experience, the KDE here hangs if dolphin isopened to browse any folder. It is consistently happening and a bug has been filed. BTW, I am running nvidia driver version 173.14.09.
