    Default how to disable kde5filepick etc....

    I recently noticed on my hp pavillion laptop (tumbleweed/KDE standard install) that the fan gets noisy very quickly, even though I was just reading the news on the internet. I checked what was going on and was surprised that the top command showed the following:
    Code:
      PID USER      PR  NI    VIRT    RES    SHR S  %CPU  %MEM     TIME+ COMMAND                                       
     2230 uli       20   0  458768  96568  81504 R 100.3 0.793  14:39.37 lo_kde5filepick                               
     2243 uli       20   0  458776  96608  81544 R 100.3 0.793  14:39.23 lo_kde5filepick                               
     2248 uli       20   0  458764  96276  81216 R 100.3 0.791  14:39.10 lo_kde5filepick
    Why are there 3 differend processes of kde5filepick with 100% CPU?
    I killed the 3 processes and was surprised that amarok then used nearly 50% CPU - that cannot be right either?
    Code:
      PID USER      PR  NI    VIRT    RES    SHR S  %CPU  %MEM     TIME+ COMMAND                                       
     2129 uli       20   0 1909908 142764  84088 R 48.50 1.172   6:22.57 amarok                                        
     1269 root      20   0  375456 101816  75472 S 0.997 0.836   0:25.32 X
    Something must be wrong in the set-up here? Any ideas?
    Thank you

    The file lo_kde5filepick belongs to libreoffice:
    Code:
    locate lo_kde5filepick
    /usr/lib64/libreoffice/program/lo_kde5filepicker
    And I found that this problem is widespread and there are bug reports from Arch Linux (https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/59839) and Debian (https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugr...cgi?bug=906987) but this problem was reported from other distros as well, e.g. Manjaro and Antergos. The strange thing is that I haven't used libreoffice but I have this problem for 3 days already.

    Just for the benefit of those reading this post. Upgrading tumleweed to version 20190108 included an upgrade of libreoffice to version 6.1.4.2-1.1 and there the problem with this file lo_kde5filepick is gone. At least I on my computer I opened several libreoffice files and lo_kde5filepick didn't appear in the top command any more.
