does top command in konsole shows something using lots of cpu or zombie apps?
I see nothing taking CPU time or any zombie apps
a crazy idea, imwheel is installed or hanging?
try removing it, i know it is just for scrollwheel but since it is a touchpad and could have a section dedicated to work as scrollwheel could be giving problems
I did remove "imwheel' and it made no difference. Thanks for the ideas
