I'm running gnome terminal with a standard Antergos install using GNOME with Wayland. When the terminal is just slightly off screen it lags like like crazy when I'm trying to scroll. I'm running zsh with a couple plugins to provide autocomplete and highlighting. This happens especially in vim and less when trying to scroll or quit.

How would I go about debugging this?

    @K7AAY Their migration plan is to basically to switch the repositories to be straight arch. So it will pretty much end up being arch. I'll eventually get around to migrating back to arch, but it's setup correctly right now, and I don't feel like breaking it. – HSchmale Jun 12 at 1:55
  • How do you exactly scroll? By pressing some key (e.g. Shift+PageUp in zsh, PageUp or Up in vim, etc.)? Or by grabbing the scrollbar and dragging with the mouse? Or two-finger scrolling with touchpad? Etc... – egmont Jun 23 at 13:49
  • What does "massively slows down" and "lags like crazy" mean? Does it take 0.1 seconds to respond, or 1 second, 10 seconds, 1 minute...? Does it happen all the time (after every keypress or scrolling mouse event), or sometimes only (about how often)? – egmont Jun 23 at 13:50
  • @egmont it seems to stop responding and actually being able to scroll or update – HSchmale Jun 24 at 2:31
  • I can't reproduce it with mainstream GNOME; also I have the feeling that if it was a generic problem, it probably would have been already reported by many folks. My first wild guess is that Antegros might have a faulty patch somewhere. – egmont Jun 24 at 7:48
