Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1268022
high CPU usage by the plasmashell process
Last modified: 2015-10-01 11:27:44 EDT
Description of problem:
The plasmashell process often uses 100% of the CPU. This bug has been filed upstream, but I wanted to file a downstream bug to track the issue as well.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
% rpm -q plasma-desktop
I'm unsure how to reproduce the problem, but it happens every day as I use KDE eventually.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use KDE for a while.
Eventually, the plasmashell process will probably be using 100% of the CPU.
No infinite loops ☺
Thanks, the upstream fix should be included in plasma-5.4.2, which will be coming to updates-testing over the next week (or so).
Please re-open if problems persist after upgrading.
