1-2sec mouse click lag on LMDE 4

Post by kally »

Hi guys,

I have a 1-2sec mouse click lag on my system:

LMDE 4 cinnamon
AMD Ryzen 2700x
16GB Ram

Whenever I click (e.g. right click) in firefox, joplin, discord etc. it takes 1-2sec to open the popup menu.
There are times when the popup comes up immediately but this is really rare.
It was not always this slow. I had this issue once but it disappeared after a while. Now it is back and I do not know what to do.
I'm new to linux and wondering if the mint ubuntu version would be better regarding my hardware?

Thank you very much in advance for your help!

The 2700X isn't a slouch so it's not your hardware per se, probably some software or configuration. You might open a terminal and run top -o %MEM to see what's hogging resources. You can also install htop if you prefer, and use htop --sort-key=PERCENT_MEM

Under what conditions does it occur? If it's associated with your browser, try disabling all add-ons and test that way, then enable them one at a time and test again.

If that doesn't help, post the output of inxi -Fxz from a terminal and enclose it in code tags. You'll see the code tags icon </> when you reply.
It's pronounced kad-eye-cha, not kada-itcha.

Thank you for your response!

Honestly it even occurs after startup if I only open Discord, Joplin, Thunderbird...
When they are open and I open e.g. a jpg file and click on the "x" in the right upper corner to close it, then the closing motion is also lagging. It is not fluent.
When no program is open, then the closing motion is fluent and everything is snappy as it should be. So there is an issue when any of those programs are opened. I have not tested other programs, but this indeed is very strange.

With htop I had a lot of dropbox and cryptomator processes, also fsearch, but I killed them all and the lag is still present.
inxi -Fxz gives this output:

I have also a lot of xorg processes. There are even more than shown in the attached screenshot, but the initial screenshot was too big to be attached. I don't know if this could be an issue?

Hope this can help to solve my issue.
Thank you in advance!
