Inkscape and LibreOffice terribly slow in Mint 17

Post by kneops »

I'm using Linux Mint for a few years now and it always worked perfectly. But now I did a fresh install of Linux Mint 17 and Inkscape and LibreOffice are terrible slow. Deleting a word in LibreOffice with backspace happens with one letter per half second. Moving an object in Inkscape makes my i7 processors work really hard, resulting in only a short move of the object.

What could cause this? Do I have a wrong x-driver installed? I installed the recommended nVidia driver.

first thin I would check is if there are other drivers for the graphic card, driver manager and try nouveau.
