Thread: XFCE+btrfs give a high ram usage

    Default XFCE+btrfs give a high ram usage

    I have recently jumped ship from openSsue LXDE to XFCE and tried to use btrfs as sugested that it is ready for daily use.

    Not the tricky thing - LXDE gave me a small amount of ram used but XFCE which should be only a bit more resource hungry can eat up as much as 3GB of ram when LXDE with same aplications launched used 1,6 GB.

    Here is the set up:
    Lenovo ThinkPad Edge
    openSuse 13.1
    XFCE
    btrfs

    all setings from automated instalation.

    An here is the memory usage with only chromium started:
    Code:
     fw190@linux-fmoh:~> free -ht             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
    Mem:          3,7G       2,2G       1,5G         0B        24K       1,5G
    -/+ buffers/cache:       690M       3,1G
    Swap:         4,0G       1,1M       4,0G
    Total:        7,7G       2,2G       5,5G
