Hi there

Since last update to kde 4.2.2 the scrolling in dolphin is very slow. Its like the speed is half or 1/4 of the one in other apps (chromium or kmail).

Anyone knows if this is configurable or a real bug? Don't you experience that?

PS: This is not a rendering issue, its just that I need to scroll/hit the mouse wheel much more..

I'm seeing it too.

Hey, I see it as well! Looks like it started with KDE 4.3.2. I upgraded today (from 4.3.1), and didn't see it before.


So, who files a bug report? ;)

Nope, from 4.3.1 to 4.3.2. I don't recall encountering this bug in 4.3.1 version.

Just updated to 4.4.2, thanks to Nicolas at Mandriva for the packaging.

Wondered what you were talking about until I tried using the scroll wheel. Yes I must
learn to read some of the posts a bit deeper. Yes I had the same problem.

Tried the same thing using a new user, and Dolphin is now back to normal!

One thing I did notice when I was setting up the new user, the menu for all desktop
effects is now dreadfully slow to scroll with the wheel! Something has gone amiss.

Sorry to report it does look like a bug! Been playing around with the
latest release of Wine. Just gone to use Dolphin and it's back to its
slowwww ways :(

Anyone have any working solutions?

It's being looked at at bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=233163

PS.: A very temporary workaround is to disable and enable again Groups view every time you start Dolphin.

Thanks for giving all the details in the report :)

This workaround works for me as well...
