Dolphin keeps freezing with KDE 4.2.3+


I've been ignoring this problem for about a week but its getting on my last nerve. Dolphin keeps freezing for about 20 seconds when ever I try to move or open files sometimes, It will just sit there and then once it returns it will very quickly execute my command. It seems im not the only one having this issue http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=81788&p=2

I still can't seem to find a fix. Can anyone else confirm this?

I'm running the most recent current BTW

Try disabling "Use thumbnails embedded in files". I had lots of slowdowns selecting PDFs until I did that.

You could try removing
Quote:
/home/[username]/.kde/share/config/dolphinrc
and see if that helps.

So far this is working, you might have nailed it.

I had this problem also on 4.2.X but when I upgraded to current 4.3.1, 4.3.2, 4.3.4 -- all was fixed. FYI.

I got it. It was the preview bar causing the problem. I just closed it and now its all good.
