[SOLVED] Ubuntu nightly getting slower?

So i’m using the nightly build on a Ubuntu 16.04 machine, i try to update the system every day, since 4 days ago (or so) KiCAD is getting slower when loading PCB Editor and when i trying to work with it, i haven’t test it with Eeschema or the other tools.

I know my PC is pretty old but last time i used KiCAD before getting this kind of problems (one week ago) it was not like this.

Do others have this problem or how can i “detect” the cause of KiCAD being this slow (it’s almost unusable)?

Application: kicad
Version: no-vcs-found-71c33d3~59~ubuntu16.04.1, release build
Libraries: wxWidgets 3.0.2
libcurl/7.47.0 OpenSSL/1.0.2g zlib/1.2.8 libidn/1.32 librtmp/2.3
Platform: Linux 4.4.0-87-generic x86_64, 64 bit, Little endian, wxGTK

  • Build Info -
    wxWidgets: 3.0.2 (wchar_t,wx containers,compatible with 2.8)
    Boost: 1.58.0
    Curl: 7.47.0
    KiCad - Compiler: GCC 5.4.0 with C++ ABI 1009

Any help is welcome :slight_smile:


Is this loading time or responsiveness?

Both of them, haven’t measured the time it takes to load but is noticeable.
As i say before, it may be my pc, but last week it was behaving normally, i would like to confirm it is happening to other users before filling a bug.
How can i help to do a better report?

Well, it was my PC, just got the notification that the HOME directory is getting out of free space.
Sorry for the inconvenient.
