I have Opensuse 42.3 with Gnome 3.20.2. I recently installed KDE Connect. It will use 100%-107% CPU and is quite annoying. Does anyone know what is causing this or how to remedy it?
Because you’re using GNOME rather than KDE, you may need to install some more KDE components to properly support “KDE Connect”.
Check the output of “zypper info --requires kdeconnect-kde”.
- Make sure that, you have installed the KDE packages which supply the “Qt5” and “KF5” library files indicated.
Also, make sure that, you have the “kdeconnect-kde-lang” package installed …
https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/home%3Asiegel/indicator-kdeconnect builds indicator-kdeconnect, which is meant for non KDE desktops. A friend uses it on TW with GNOME, TW has it included in the distro.
I believe all the requirements were installed when I installed KDEConnect. Here is what zypper spits out and everything seems to be installed. KDE connect works for a while before starting to use 100% CPU, and even then it continues to work, just draining my laptop of resources. Just to try it, I installed indicator-KDEConnect to find out what happens. I will report back.

AFAICS, the current community/user build of “indicator-kdeconnect” by «siegel» is broken and, it’s strongly recommended to contact the folks who are privately building packages before actually installing what they’re building …
The community build made by «twotaps» seems to be, at least for Leap 15.0, more successful …
I swapped providers. After some time though, KDEConnect was using 100% again. It works flawlessly other than it hogs resources.
