I wouldn't say it's "horrifically slow", but it's slower than
With the System Activity viewer open, sorted by CPU usage, I created a new
blank mail, and after pressing Send, I can see virtuoso_t climbing up the
list for a few seconds, consuming 23% of CPU.
In conclusion, I'd blame Nepomuk/Virtuoso.
If you can test with the System Activity, share the results back.
That seems to agree with my observations. This morning, I even saw it using
78% CPU, while the popup said that it was waiting for 'something' to happen.
I didn't see any indication what that 'something' might be.
I tried the command recommended by techbase (with kontact closed, of course).
qdbus org.kde.NepomukServer /nepomukserver org.kde.NepomukServer.quit
After which I saw several instances of:
Nepomuk Indexing Agents Have Been Disabled
The Nepomuk service is not available or fully operational and attempts to
rectify this have failed. Therefore indexing of all data stored in the
Akonadi PIM service has been disabled, which will severely limit the
capabilities of any application using this data.
The following problems were detected:
* Nepomuk is not running.
Additional help can be found here: userbase.kde.org/Akonadi
So then, to restart it:
Nepomuk server already running.
All of which is confusing, to say the least. By now, though, I'm totally
convinced that this is where the problem lies. Ksysguard shows Nepomuk CPU
usage shooting up every time I have a KMail freeze.
