Since I upgraded to raring (from the early days), I notice frequent freezes when I use gtk apps like firefox, chrome, pidgin, darktable in the kde environemt. The only solution I have found is to run them as sudo. I created new users to see if this is a configuration problem but the problem persists.
Initially I thought it was a kwin_gles and I reported it to the kde bugtracker https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=310487.
These applications seem to work ok in fvwm.
So does anybody has any suggestions? Somehow I feel it is a permission problem?
Happy new year to everybody.
