I’m complain about speed…



any solution of this?


Maybe you should move into 2021 then, which is where the rest of us reside. :grin:

KDE Plasma is no heavier on resources and no slower than XFCE. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t any more lightweight desktop environments out there ─ e.g. LXDE ─ but it’s also a far cry from saying that KDE Plasma would be the heaviest.

To date, the heaviest among the desktop environments is GNOME, and that has already been the case since GNOME 3 was released.

The splash screen in Plasma can be disabled.

Not on my system.

How lame KDE really is can be seen when you install 2 older and absolutely identical PCs with XFXE and KDE. KDE in the standard installation takes more than twice as long to start and shutdown as the standard XFCE installation. Even if all KDE desktop effects and services are turned off, it still feels on older PCs like a race between wheelchair and roller skate. Pay attention to the hard disk activity when KDE is still shoveling data after logging in while XFCE has already finished. What shell I think if it is said that KDE is actually not slower than XFCE and I and my colleagues watch this spectacle on several PCs every day. I would agree if you said that the difference on modern PCs is no longer so awesome noticeable …

Takes around 5 seconds here to boot and that because of optimus manager (not default), yeah totally… :roll_eyes:

okay i’ve removed my posts, now you can help the op speed up his slow kde install, cause he thinks it’s slow.

have at it.

The machines I am reporting on are all about Lenovo W530 i7 with SSD and 16 GB RAM and Docking Station and also run with the Optimus Manager qt. XFCE to log in in 4.3 seconds, KDE in 7.2 seconds. Softmaker Office Pro needs felt twice the time to open an advertising document with graphics on KDE as it does under XFCE. If KDE didn’t support our external screens better than XFCE, we would have thrown it out long ago from our 7 remaining KDE machines. Sorry for my clear words
