Thread: when using dolphin in super user mode, this application runs very slowly!

  1. #1

    Unhappy when using dolphin in super user mode, this application runs very slowly!

    In graphic interface, when I use dolphin to view the files in super user mode, this application runs very slowly, and react dull at each request!

    Does everyone meet the same situation?

    By the way, my distribution is OpenSUSE 11.3, and when I use normal mode, this problem won't happen.

    I don't have this problem, though I have 11.4.

    11.3 may be different, especially if it hasn't had kde updated. I do know there were issues with super user dolphin at some stage.
    Fortunately it's not an application I use.

    i have 11.3 with KDE 4.5.5 and dolphin is equally responsive in both
    super and normal user mode...i could change directories, open/display
    files, and scroll down in big directories--all with apparently the same
    ease and speed whether super user or not..

    perhaps this is not what the OP is talking about??

    I do have this slow behavior with Opensuse 11.4 on my Lonovo laptop. When I run Dolphin in super user mode, it is too too slow. I'm facing this silly bug since I have cleanly installed opensuse 11.4. Till now I can't find a useful solution for this annoying bug.

    Based on some research, this bug also exists in Opensuse 11.3 !!!



    I thought many many times in returning to Ubuntu and leaving Opensuse altogether because of that. Usually when similar bug exists in Ubuntu, you find many others having the same bug and the bug reason and solution appear fast in Ubuntu forums. It seems that Opensuse is not so much spread, or its forums are not that active as Ubuntu !!!!

    You could try running Konqueror as Super User to see if this makes any difference for you. In KDE you can do a Alt-F2 or alternately do a menu / Run Command and enter the following command:

    Code:
    kdesu kfmclient openProfile filemanagement
    I created an icon on the desktop in the Folder View Mode using a text editor in the Desktop folder save the file as FM - Super User.desktop:

    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Comment[en_US]=
    Comment=
    Exec=kdesu kfmclient openProfile filemanagement
    GenericName[en_US]=
    GenericName=
    Icon=konqueror
    MimeType=
    Name[en_US]=FM - Super User
    Name=FM - Super User
    Path=
    StartupNotify=true
    Terminal=false
    TerminalOptions=
    Type=Application
    X-DBUS-ServiceName=
    X-DBUS-StartupType=
    X-KDE-SubstituteUID=false
    X-KDE-Username=
    X-SuSE-translate=true
    This works for me just fine though I have not noticed an issue with Dolphin when in Super User Mode.

    like i always say: Use what works!

    as said: i didn't have the reported slow superuser Dolphin problem in
    11.3, and i have just now tested it (for the first time) in 11.4, and it
    scrolls smoothly and quickly bottom to top and top to bottom whether
    using my mouse scroll wheel, or WOW, the scroll with touch pad is SO
    FAST i almost say it is TOO fast and still smooth..

    so, either you have a graphics problem, or some kind of corruption or
    interference between software packages...perhaps you have installed
    something from repos outside of oss, non-oss, update or packman?

    or, maybe you distro hop and keep the same /home...and, let all that
    non-working on the next distro junk build up and poison your system??

    pick a distro and stick with it! or, have two completely separate and
    never touching root and /home partitions for each distro you want to try..

    The command used for the "Filemanager Superuser Mode" that ships with openSUSE KDE is
    Code:
    dbus-launch dolphin %i -caption "%c" "%u"


    Maybe using a different way to run Dolphin as root will not see it running as slowly.
    Code:
    kdesu dolphin
    might work better for example. Or just
    Code:
    dolphin
    in combination with checking "Run as a different user" (no need to specify root - it is implied).

    I remember this bug well, but it did not occur for a Dolphin specifically started by root, but in any Dolphin (or Konqueror). It is solved in 11.4, you are most likely experiencing a different bug.
