When I try Alt+F2 in kde44, krunner appears for a second, but when I type in
the second or third char, krunner disappears. Anybody got a fix? I use it more
than the menu and now you --- can't.
Krunner works fine as long as you deselect everything except having krunner load
programs and run scripts.
I was amazed when I clicked preferences in krunner in kde44 and saw that krunner
was filtering the input against all email address, bookmarks, dictionaries, wiki
pages, the qt4 manual, walking the neighbors dog, etc..... One of those
"features" is broken causing krunner to crash when you get to the 3rd or 4th
character. Deselecting everything has restored krunners usefulness.
I had no idea that thing bloated up to do all those unwanted (and unadvertised)
things. No wonder it is dog slow. I unchecked everything and its much better.
This has come up before, have a look at my post on the -kde list
I found the "Control Audio player" and "Windows" runners are buggy and
cause random freezes. Disable them for sure.
Also, all the web-lookup runners are slow for obvious reasons and so
disabling them is a good idea too.
Because I have strigi turned off I disabled the nepomuk runner.
And the "Contacts" runner doesn't appear to work with Akonadi so that
can go off too.
And the "Terminate Applications" doesn't work. With these off my krunner
is nice and fast, no problems.
Krunner supporting plugins is great, but maybe which ones are on by
default should be thought about more carefully ...
