I would like to switch to KDE desktop. Mostly because of multiple monitor configurations. But it seems like im missing something but unsure what.
Im used to running gnome. And its fast. : 2x amd HD7950 3gb | amd quad core 3.1ghz | 8gb ram | ssd | Running 3 monitors. 1 full HD, 2 x HD-ready | Still running version 29. Didnt upgrade yet. But like i said with gnome its really fast… Just my monitors jump in importance and programs open on wrong default monitors (thats why i want to switch)
But i installed KDE / plasma | Tried switchdesk kde (but that really doesnt do much except make me unable to input data with mouse or keyboard on non-default monitors) So i have to log out. Then log in to kde desktop.
However KDE is extremely slow. And by slow i mean it takes about 7-9 seconds to open bottom menu. And another 7-9 seconds to click log out. Soon as i switch back to gnome everything zooms like usual. I understand that KDE is just heavier and it would take longer but not this much. My instinct tells me its video-card related / monitors. But strange since everything works just fine on gnome. After searching the forums i tried to disable composition (i think) effects for windows. And it does take down load time to 5-7 seconds. but thats still way to long for any mouse click.
So im definately missing something but cant figure out what. If someone can point me in the right direction that would be great! Thanks in advance
