There is a noticeable delay when resizing windows? On this same PC, I run Compiz in Mint Gnome, and with the same settings, it is faster and smother. I have a year old quad core system (Core2 quad 6600), with a pretty recent ATI card (HD3850), and 2 gigs of memory. I would think I had the ability to run KDE 4.2 with everything on and still have a robust system.
Is there anything that can be done to make desktop effects work smoothly on KDE 4. My system is not ancient by any stretch and should be able to handle KDE 4, I would think. I had been running the 64 bit edition of main, so maybe that helped, but I have run the regular mMint main before and had no problems. I like most of the KDE apps over their Gnome counterparts, so I thought, why not switch to KDE. I figured they would run better that way. Any suggestions on improving performance while still allowing desktop effects (love wobbly windows) would be appreciated. Thanks.
