IrcsomeBot<zparihar> Hi Guys,  I recently upgraded my main Workstation from 18.04 to 20.04.  However, I'm now experiencing delays with KDE specific apps (I don't know if I'm describing it right actually).   … Example 1: … In Yakuake, I "cd" to a specific directory, then I right click "Open File Manager", but I experience quite a bit of delay for the app to open, and when it opens, the frame of dolphin opens, but I can still see the background of Yaka02:15
IrcsomeBot- it takes some time to repaint it. But when it opens, it feels normal. … Example 2: … I hit 'Alt + F2' to open up Krunner, and when I start typing (anything), it takes quite a few seconds for anything to show.  But when it starts typing, it feels normal. … Any idea on how I can get this more responsive like it was before?02:15

amanda-what am i missing about setting up wallpapers in plasma? it's only allowing me to select from PNG images, not jpegs.04:36
IrcsomeBot<Swift110> oh04:37
Maikamanda-: still at it?05:01
amanda-yes. didn't get an answer before i had to go to bed last night, and nothing since i went to work, so here i am.05:05
amanda-alas, i don't get to play with it when i'm working.05:06
Maiksorry i didn't get back, fell asleep last morning since i work nightshifts only. I'll fire up a live session and have a look05:06
amanda-cool, thanks05:07
Maikamanda-: i can load a jpg file and apply it as background without any issue05:12
amanda-so i can add a single image in folder view. what i can't do is select a folder for slideshow mode.05:15
amanda-and now it's magically working. i have no clue what changed, except that i did a dist-upgrade a bit ago because i had some post-install updates pending apparently.05:17
amanda-it doesn't like the size of my folder tho. that's fun.05:17

amanda-ah, it unfroze. note to self: plasma doesn't like folders with 90k images in them.05:19
amanda-maybe i'll fix that at some point.05:19
amanda-what kind of pre-processing is it doing on these files? switching my second head to slideshow mode has frozen everything except xchat.05:28
amanda-great. plasmashell crashed, leaving me with xchat and nothing else.05:29
Maikdid you reboot after you updated?05:30
amanda-no, i didn't get a prompt to do so and i generally have never had to unless i updated the kernel.05:31
amanda-need to punch it, brb.05:31
Maikthat's a long reboot05:34
amanda-well, that sucked.05:35
amanda-it does NOT like this.05:38
amanda-rebooted. the login took (relatively) forever, i guess because of the large size of my backgrounds folder. now i'm trying to set up the wallpaper for the second (of three) screen, and when adding the folders to slideshow mode, it freezes plasma. xchat works because i opened that before i started messing with the wallpaper settings, but (for example) the menu doesn't work anymore. can't hit the right click menu on any of the three heads anymore, either. p05:40
amanda-lasma is just DRT -- dead right there.05:40
amanda-i'm ... disappointed.05:42
amanda-is there like a known upper limit to the number of images in a folder the software can handle?05:44
Maikthe large size of the folder has nothing to do with it, it's not like Windows that slows down after a while. Either you've been meesing too much with the system or something else is borked.05:44
MaikSSD or HDD?05:45
amanda-rather, ~ is HDD, / is sdd05:45
MaikCPU and RAM?05:45
amanda-i think there's 16 gig of RAM in here. the hdd light isn't blinking, which suggests it's not flogging. i'll reboot again and run a cpu monitor before i mess with the wallpaper settings again and see if it pegs something.05:47
amanda-oh, 32g of ram apparently. that's nice to know. you can see how hard i use the machine, that it matters or something.05:53
Maiknot sure why you have that many issues.....05:55
amanda-i5-6660 on a gigabyte board. it also significantly stalls on login.05:56
Maiklast thing i can come up with that it might be grapics card related.05:56
amanda-i guess. is there something funky i need to install for nvidia?05:56
amanda-i have a gtx 106005:57
MaikMaybe the driver.... if no driver is installed then you run on the open source Nouveau which isn't that great iirc.05:58
Maiki only have Intel since a few years so i'm not really able to help with nVidea related stuff05:59
amanda-i mean, i don't have much invested in this setup, i'm happy to wipe and reinstall if that's what it takes.06:01
Maikamanda-: look in Software Sources at Additional Drivers06:02
amanda-okay. some google-fu helped me install nvidia-driver-450. reboot time. bbiaf.06:06
amanda-okay so it's absolutely plasmashell choking on this large directory. i added a small(ish) one, and it worked okay. i added the very large one, and it's spiked one core to 100%, and the rest of the system has come to a screeching halt.06:13
Maikthen you have to do it with the small one and live with it. :)06:17
amanda-i'll divide the bigger one into small ones. midnight commander to the rescue.06:18
amanda-omg, who came up with this color scheme for midnight commander? kill me now.06:20
amanda-once upon a time i sent a guy a pic of my tits in exchange for writing a script that would do this file move stuff really quickly. alas i lost it several server moves ago. very disappointed in myself.06:22
amanda-hey, when you can't write bash scripts very well, you use what you've got06:24

aleskandroHi all07:47
aleskandroI tried to  search on the web but I didn't find anything, probably wrong keywords... By now, KDE on X11 doesn't support fractional per-screen scaling, so I use to have it through xrandr... However when I do scale my second 4k monitor (the first one is a 2k) to 1.25x1.25, the kde panels in the second display become very "slow"/glitched, i.e., when I click either the menu button or any window to be minimized/restored I wait07:51
aleskandro~2seconds in order to get the action done... The first display is rather pretty good as without any scaling set...07:51
lordievaderI believe wayland does a better job at this. Switching to wayland is not an option?07:58
aleskandrolordievader: not until I can't share my displays during skype (or similar softwares) calls08:10
aleskandromoreover, I don't believe the state of art for kde on wayland is stable enough for "busy" guys...08:12

IrcsomeBot<linuxophil> Hi all!13:03
IrcsomeBot<linuxophil> On reboot I got these errors on my Kubuntu 20.04:13:04

IrcsomeBot<linuxophil> After a loooong waiting time, the system finished booting.13:05
IrcsomeBot<linuxophil> Dows anyone understand what happened there?13:05
IrcsomeBot<warrensanchez> @linuxophil, It's weird what I'm going to say, but unplugging the machine, removing all USB devices, and then starting the machine without any USB connected, it resolved13:29

mocalvaoHi there20:32
mocalvaoI have an odd behavior since today for my mouse pointer. I have a focal fossa kubuntu 20.4 version, regularly updated. It worked seamlessly till today.20:33
mocalvaoI have two monitors and my mouse insists on jumping often to an area around the left upper part of the left screen. This seems to happen randomly but frequently, which renders its use impracticable. Have you got any ideas?20:35
mocalvaoRight now, for instance, I am struggling to have this chat, via Konversation. I am essentially limited to Konversation last field (for entering text only)20:36
mocalvaoDoes anyone know whether some recent update might have spoiled something?20:37
mocalvaoI guess I have done two of them, via Discover, today. Also I tried changing the mouse, without success20:38
mocalvaoAny hep is greatly appreciated!20:38
IrcsomeBot<Invictus1718> @DarinMiller, Thank you.... editing the environment didn't solve my problem though :/  … Still stuck at the same login loop. Tried adding another user and logging in but doesn't work either20:39
IrcsomeBot<Invictus1718> Is there another way I can boot? Or at least manage to salvage my files and do a fresh install thereafter?20:41
mocalvaoThe mouse really seems to be stuck around the same area mentioned above. I am only able to move it a little but then it typically goes back to that point. Even when I am able to move it somewhere else, it stays there very briefly (around 3 or 4 seconds at most)20:41
mocalvaoI also notice it stays there, at the same point (left upper part of left screen), but there is some slight shivering once in a while. Any help please?20:42
mocalvaoAre my posts visible there?20:44
mocalvaoPlease give me some feedback anyway20:45
mocalvaoIs anybody out there?20:47
IrcsomeBot<DarinMiller> @mocalvao, I have no idea how to help.21:04
