Try disabling kde indexing (ie. strigi) - it should slightly speed things up.

If you mean the bouncing icons, get rid of them through System Settings => Look & Feel => Desktop => Launch Feedback, there's a drop-down menu, select "No busy cursor".

Yeah, the underlying processes are still taking place, but without annoying bouncing indicators that something is happening.

You again missed post# 30

You asked me
"What's so bad about just having KDE installed?" and i replied accordingly (bouncing cursor problem due to slowness) !

I am using LXDE right now and trying to find ways to get around the slowness of KDE, so that i don't have to install two desktop environments !!

I don't understand why you have the bouncing cursor even though you are not running KDE.

I don't know, maybe removing KDE and installing Marble?

Are you feeling sleepy right now ? (That was a joke)

I told you that bouncing cursor problem (slowness) occurs when I run KDE !! I am trying to figure out how to get around that problem ! (though i am not running KDE right now)

OK, I understood that you wanted to get rid of KDE.

Anyway, is the problem the bouncing cursor itself, or the fact that something is working in the background (causing the bouncing cursor)?

It's probably something that's tightly integrated into KDE

Anyway, maybe try running top whilt that's giong on, and that way you might find out what's happening?
