    Default File Dialogs unresponsive

    Whether i am trying to attach a file to an email or perhaps save a Kate document ... anything to do that requires a file dialog to load it seems .... the dialog take about 1 minute to load and then is mostly unresponsive.

    I cannot see any bottleneck with respect to memory or thread usage ... but stull application becomes unresponsive.

    Also, Gwenview acts the same way when trying to load an image from disk ... same behaviour ... after envoking the app it does not appear in the GUI for about a minute .. then often just becomes totally unresponsive???

    Have been putting up with it for a month now??

    Sorry cannot be more specific ... can anybody suggest something i might do??

    Thanks

    Well spotted googalthorp!!! Creating a new user and all those 'unresponsive' issue disappear!!

    I would be most grateful indeed!

    Thanks

    Well it is probably in the users ~/.config files for plasma or ~/.cache. Best to clean them out when not running KDE ie log in to a terminal. Which file?? Sorry don't have a clue maybe someone else might know or guess. Note cleaning out the configs will put the Desktop back to default settings
