[Bug 367372] Re: Gedit uses 100% of the CPU while editing files


in my lubuntu 14.04 same problem. Googling I found 100%cpu utilisation is due to the two processes: ibus-daemon and ibus-x11

1st SOLUTION: start menu > Preferences > Language Support > Keyboard
Input Method System: none

2n alternate SOLUTION: sudo apt-get remove ibus

IBUS is an "alternative" to setxkbmap
IBUS has many problem with some keyboard under lubuntu 14.04

  Gedit uses 100% of the CPU while editing files

Status in Light-Weight Text Editor for Gnome:
Status in “gedit” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: gedit

  Making changes to a file(typing or deleting characters) makes gedit consume 100% of the CPU power available.
  I noticed this since I've installed Ubuntu 9.04. 

  I was poking in the fonts setting under the appearance preferences and
  I thought I noticed a slight difference if I turn off all processing
  and make the font glyph render without subpixel rendering and hinting.
  However it is merely marginal. To make sure it was not the graphics
  drivers I switched from the ati drivers to vesa but that did not help
  at all.

  I am running on a 5 years old Dell Inspiron 5100 laptop with Radeon Mobility 7500(details in lspci-vvnn.log provided in link below), with 256MiB of RAM.

  uname -a yields:
  Linux lordmetroid-laptop 2.6.28-11-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Fri Apr 17 01:57:59 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux
