Are you running composited desktop? If you turn composition off you should
I tried this by adding
Option "Composite" "Disable"
to my xorg.conf, but pcbnew has not become more responsive, so that did not fix
it... Any other ideas? How far is that new drawing method?
There's been no consensus reached, and even it there was a consensus, it
would be a major rewrite, enough to justify a completely new repo branch.
I think we need to start by asking this question: "Is this problem
specific to Kicad or is it general to wxWidgets?"
If Kicad specific, then please tell us where in our code we are doing
something different than what is intended by the wxWidgets library
developers. If instead it is general to wxWidgets, then please tell us
what their roadmap is towards fixing the problem. (Even if that road
map looks like a dot in the mud.)
