Thread: Dolphin 1.5 hangs in KDE 4.5

  1. #1

    Default Dolphin 1.5 hangs in KDE 4.5

    Since I've upgraded to KDE 4.5 on openSUSE 11.3 i am getting some instances of Dolphin hanging or lagging when navigating directories or opening files. Anyone else getting this?

    Smile Re: Dolphin 1.5 hangs in KDE 4.5

    Yes, I noticed the same issue since my upgrade to KDE 4.5. So, I just switched to Konqueror instead. I created two menu entries, one as a normal file system user and the other as a Super User.

    Standard File Manager Using Konqueror:

    Code:
    kfmclient openProfile filemanagement
    and as Super User:

    Code:
    kdesu kfmclient openProfile filemanagement
    I decided to go Konqueror All the way...

    Thank You,

    I noticed the same hanging of about 10 seconds sometimes, by the way, in konqueror now lack the files filter bar (like in 3.5), do you know if it is possible to have that back again?? that filter bar was very useful and I started to use dolphin only after that filter bar was introduced.
    Konqueror All the way with filter:-)

    This bug was driving me crazy up until a few minutes ago, when some googling revealed it can be fixed by turning off Pop Up Notices for File transfers and other jobs in the Notifications Settings. Dolphin seems to be behaving properly again. It kinda sucks though, as this is the first release where I found the system tray's implementation of tracking file transfers to actually be useful. Ah well, fingers crossed for 4.5.1.

    Edit: It would appear I spoke too soon. ::head-desk:: KDE's bug-tracker shows numerous reports of this issue. You would think in a feature release with 16,000 bug-fixes, something as critical as this would be one of them.

    I actually installed Konqueror 3.5 and have an icon pointing to it. Dolphin still crashes and hanging for me in many cases so I resort to Konqueror 3.5. Amazing the difference how much faster it is, but I guess we'll get there eventually.

    Following suite with the first reply, i switched file managers. I tried Konqueror but then i went to Krusader and Midnight Commander. I liked Midnight Commander a lot but Krusader was a little more user friendly for me and i like it as well and it seems to be working very well. :-)

    I'm frustrated with KDE 4.5 Dolphin. It's so unstable it's unusable. I turned off all desktop effects, and pop up notifications and it still goes out to lunch for 10-15 seconds at a time randomly for no apparent reason. Just sitting open in a directory that has no activity going on it will occasionally crash without even touching it.

    At this point, I'm sorry to say, I've switched to Nautilus. Some features I like are missing, but I'll take a stable reliable file manager over eye candy and feature overload any day.

    You do know that 4.5 is still very much beta in OpenSuse?? Why would you expect it to be stable?

    Because the same issues occur in the "Stable" release of 4.4.4 under 11.3. I was hoping it actually got fixed.
