Description Grissiom 2008-03-05 15:38:09 UTC
Version:            (using Devel)
Installed from:    Compiled sources

when 'show hidden files' in my home directory(30 folders, 29 files), dolphin will hang up for about 5~10 seconds. That's unbearable.

Just to be 100 % sure: your compiled version is on trunk, not on the 4.0.x branch? Could you please tell me your CPU + GHz values? The bottleneck on trunk is the blending of the icons, which seems to be incredible slow -> I'll have to find another way for the blending...

Ah, sorry that I forgot to mention that I'm using OpenSUSE's UNSTABLE repository. I think the version is on trunk. My CPU is AMD Turion64X2, 1.7G.

SVN commit 785369 by ppenz:

Remove the semitransparent effect for hidden items in the IconManager, it just takes too much time at this part of the code. David Faure suggested some alternative ideas, I hope I can try them before KDE 4.1. Currently it is more important to keep the performance high.
