    Default Probably a plasma problem

    Hi,

    I'm not much of an poster here, I had some problems 2 years back you can look up here
    https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...ation-Launcher

    This time is somewhat similar.
    In the meantime I have updated to 15.0 and to 15.1 - I also do apply all software updates if they are shown as available.

    It started about 3 weeks back very similar to last time (I do NOT have multiple activities (desktops) anymore). Otherwise the system is pretty much the same.
    2 different sized monitors
    3x 1TB hard-drives
    The rest you can see at attached system info screenshot.

    It mostly happen when I either:

    create a file (no matter if image, video or document) or folder, change a file or folder.
    My machine almost seize, if I have a browser open or a folder I can browse/open files with right-click but NOT when I try to open applications by clicking the link/icon

    Also I observed that basically all actives are freezing (clock/ torrent downloads), my core temperatures rise to 70Celsius, the machine is working very hard.

    After maybe4-5 minutes everything is done. All applications I may have clicked open up, all files or folders I try to close before do now close.

    The application launcher is in a "pulsing" mode again. If I try to open any fold-out menu it only shows for a fraction of a second.

    Also the drag and drop files into applications like Kdenlive no more work. If I take a video file and drag over to Kden as soon as i reach the app it turns into a red X and file drop is a no-go

    Any pointers/hints?
    WHat info do you need me to post to assist you determine what might be the bug

    Reformat/new install is NOT an option at all.
    I use the machine daily at least 2-3 hours mainly to process/post/mail images or videos of clients from the respective days tour (I run a very, very small adven-tour / scuba enterprise). I do not game or run any type of "exotic" application

    And please keep in mind: nothing has changed in regards of my English writing/grammar, it still suck. Same so with my geek vocabulary is very limited.



    Thanks for your assistance.

    The first thing I'd suggest to do, is to create a new user with YaST, logout, and login as that to new user to check whether this is a system issue ( the new user should experience this too ) or some old user/plasma config ( the new user should not experience this ). Then report here.
    A second thing: what is the video card involved?
    Code:
    sudo lspci

    Before you login to KDE (at the SDDM screen) switch to a virtual terminal "Ctrl-Alt-F2"
    Login there as your normal user and start "Top".
    Leave top running, don't logout or exit.
    Now switch back to the graphical session "Ctrl-Alt-F7" and log in as normal.

    When the "machine is working very hard" as described above, switch to the virtual terminal "Ctrl-Alt-F2", and see what process (as shown by top) is consuming the CPU.

    Sorry, minor correction.
    It is not "Top", but
    Code:

    K, I will do that the next time it does it.
    Does a screenshot of System Activity sorted by % of CPU usage also help??
