SLOW GUI response in EESCHEMA [linux/ubuntu]


In EESCHEMA, the response is very slow or sometimes frozen when zooming in or out using the mouse scroll wheel.

I wonder if it is related to the graphic engine because in PCBNEW the OpenGL canvas is a little faster than the default. But, there is no way to choose it in EESCHEMA.

I tried in Ubuntu 16.04 and 14.04. The graphic card is AMD Firepro 2270 and its driver is by default of Ubuntu.

Thank you!

the version is:


What is your kicad version?

Also remember:
This is a user forum. Very few developers visit it regularly. Some might have experienced the same problems you have and might know a workaround to get better results.
If you want direct interaction with developers, head over to the bugtracker. Read the “how to report a bug” first.


Thank you, Rene! I posted the screen shot of the version info.
