Dolphin file manager hangs for a couple minutes when I try to add a new folder to Places. And sometimes it can freeze without visible connection with my actions. Has anyone met this problem?
I noticed it a month ago i think.
UPD: Dolphin hangs even I just try hide or show any point in Places.
Thanks for your reply! At first I thought about these problems too. But there aren’t any usb drives plugged to my pc. Even though there are some ftp folders i think they only can slow down Dolphin from starting up.
May be there is some rare bug…
OMG! I fixed it! It is not Dolphin’s bug! It’s KDE Connect’s bug! I switched the hidden places on and found that there are a ton of points to my phone! KDE connect adds it in hidden state for every connect! Perhaps I hid one of these points several years ago and it led to adding new points with my phone in hidden state.
I discovered ~ 23 000 rows in /home/user/.local/share/user-places.xbel! I deleted all extra point and Dolphin flies like a rocket now.
And even more: it solved problems with slowly opening the file open dialog in some programs.
So I will look to KDE Connect documentation to solve the problem.
