I am currently using the KDE Plasma Desktop Environment and a few seconds after logging in the plasmashell process would end up using more than 80% of the CPU which sometimes leads to lag and high fan speed.
Even after killing and starting the process, it would sometimes lower the usage for a while but in most cases there would be no changes.
This does not occur with other desktop environments but I would prefer to stick with KDE Plasma.
I am currently using an:
- Intel Inspiron 5758
- 8 GB RAM
- Intel Core i7-5500U CPU @ 2.40 GHz
- GPU: Intel HD Graphics 5500
- Ubuntu 17.10
- Kernel: 4.13.0-21
- KDE Plasma 5.9
I have tried:
- Restarting plasmashell
- Removing all widgets/applets
- Disabling ipv6 network capabilities
Is there any solutions for this?
