Also about my previous statement, that driver update fixed the issues... it didn't. In fact, this new KDE seems to be running alternatively


You could try this: change Window decorations to Plastik, if you have Oxygen currently on. Also if that one does not help out, set all the oxygen to something else.

My current setup is:

Desktop theme: Kaleban
Window decorations: Plastik
Style: QtCurve

Seems it gives best performance yet. Biggest improvement seems to come from changing decorations out from oxygen.

I did these changes after reading this post: http://www.kdedevelopers.org/node/4318

Yeah. The first time it will download your mails (it is configurable which mails you want to download). After that it "just works."
