Thread: General slow down in gnome panel

  1. #1

    Default General slow down in gnome panel

    Does anybody have a solution for this slow desktop problem?

    The last 1 weeks or 2, moving around in the gnome panel has slowed a lot. What was a 1 second delay switching from workspace 1 to workspace 2 now takes 30 seconds.
    Inside the applications like gnome terminal processing is fast, Thunderbird and Firefox do seem to have slowed but Kate, Kaffeine work fine.

    Dragging and dropping into workspaces takes 15-30seconds but by using the drop down box the speed is normal.

    This machine is running OpenSuse 11.2, Gnome Desktop 2.28.2, Amd 64 3000+, 2Gb RAM,

    Thanks

    Hi
    Run top and see what processes are running when your trying activities, the other place to look is the Xorg log files for any errors.

    Thanks To me it looks like polkitd runs 50% or more. I'm not sure why its running and it restarts every time I kill it.

    And the general log, look for disk related errors.

    Embarrassed to say the /var/log/messages and /var/log/warn were reporting pulseaudio daemon failed to start. Fixing that seems to solve the delays and polkitd problems.

    Thank you and Malcomlewis for the 2nd eyes reminding me to start with the basics.

    Hi
    Check the logs for polkit errors, you don't have usb devices connected?
