Thread: Any comments on KDE 4.6.0?

  1. #1

    Default Any comments on KDE 4.6.0?

    I have a few and wondered if anyone else had noticed anything. My few are:

    32bit is flakey. Clicks don't do anything. Strange mix of doubles and singles. Safe mode booted to KDE with a lot of consoles open. Sometimes I wish it would do something like that. I did have the nvidia driver installed and that may be the cause. No crashes though.

    On 64bit which I have used for a number of days now.
    Some rather long and even longer delays following mouse clicks. The rather long one turned out to be the KDE indexing facility so have turned it off and those disappeared.Better than Beagle but - so as to speak. Re Installed with acpi disabled and this seems to have cured the very long ones. From past experience acpi delays aren't that unusual with all power saves turned of at the desktop level.

    Initially installed on ext4. Following a note one the kubuntu site of all places that ext4 can take twice as long as ext3 for some things I changed to ext3. Going on install time this is true. Much much quicker even though I loaded all of the dev kit this time. The ext4 install was the default.

    Not to pleased with the nouveau driver. It's connected to an nvidia 210 silent and the desktop effects seem to be a lot better using nvidia driver. Glxgear suggests about a 4 to one difference in performance. Some how it does seem to have improved a bit with use. My guess on that is that the effects timings are shorter. No such problem with the nvidia driver. Even the desktop fades in.

    A 32bit opera download installed ok on 64bit. Yast downloaded lots of 32bit files. Important to me as I ran 10.3 64bit for a long time - 64bit too soon as few apps other than the standard stuff supported it. I did complain about that and was told "we would have to install all of the 32bit libraries" well most people have too much disc space these days.

    Had real problems importing my emails. I reinstalled my old 10.3 setup and tar'd the entire directory rather than just copying it to a usb disc. Copied the tar across instead. Expanded and imported without any problems. At a loss to explain this but have noticed comments from some time ago about file management flaws in 64bit so this might be down to 10.3. Don't really know. I have always just copied the directories before and imported without any problems - once kde added the install following my complaint. Before that they were dragged across and chown'd with konqueror.

    Not sure why but firefox is irritating me so have switched to opera for a while at least, Could be the position of the reload button, f6 not highlighting the address bar for a delete and the last search being left rather than cleared. Not highlighted either. That was 32bit again.

    The kde pdf reader is still incredibly slow on huge hi res scans or books. Hope I can still install adobe. Also flawed or a lot lot slower on 32bit.

    KDE 4.6.0 has been fine for me, except on one underpowered computer. After I managed to turn off Desktop Effects, it was fine there, too.

    If you haven't already done so, try turning off desktop effects. If that is not the problem, then it may be video driver problems.

    this is not a forum for wide ranging comments and discussions on
    KDE4.x.x or anything else..

    instead it is a *help* forum, a place where folks can describe their
    problem and ask for help...the top of the web forum describes it as
    "Questions about desktops (KDE, Gnome, XFCE, etc.), software
    applications (configuration, usage, bugs, documentation)"

    i'm going to ask a moderator move it to the chit-chat or soapbox forum..

    if you need help with firefox (for example) this is the place to get
    it...but, please put only *one* problem in each post..

    And usability at all. KDE is created for programmers and as you understand KDE for developing ROCKS.

    It is not perfect, i can assure you of this. It is, however, most stable and does what you want.
    One of the things i still see, and i files a bug report on it, is the unsecure user switch. It still displays what was last used on that screen.
    But aside of that, i normally don't have any issues.
