    Why is 19.10 so SLOW ?

    Have been using Kubuntu 16.04 LTS for quite a while. Backup up, reformatted the HDD and did a clean/fresh install of Kubuntu 19.10

    Everything is so much slower. It's not CPU as I have been checking it. Sometimes there is only 6% CPU, yet the mouse is not smooth, sometimes not able to move it at all. Overall performance is terrible, apps taking much longer to load. I search and many posts of how fast 19.10 is. Two links here but they seem to be load times

    Same computer - quad processor and 4Gb ram, plenty of swap size, and HDD only less than half used. What could be causing this ?

    There was a notification for "akonadi migration agent". Do I need that for KDE ? Just remembering what a waste of resources when I used KMail (use Claws now) and anything with akonadi used a lot of resources. What else could be in 19.10 to cause the poor performance ?

    Would run 'top' or 'htop' in terminal and see if any process is using excess ram or cpu. Sometimes a process gets wonky and uses too many resources.
