A week or so ago, I noticed my memory usage was insanely high. Plasma Shell itself was using more than a GiB of memory, and my total memory usage while idle, discounting disk cache, was more than 5.5 GiB. Reinstalling EndeavourOS did not fix this. I thought it was just Plasma Shell, and reported it to the people over at KDE, but they said it might have to do with my distribution. I took a look at memory usage for other programs and lo and behold, it’s not just Plasma Shell continually using more and more memory, but every program as well. Within two days of a system reboot, it is using a total of 5.5 GiB of memory, and quite frankly, it’s super frustrating. If you could help me resolve this, I would be extremely grateful.
Some things I have noticed:
-The text on resource monitoring widgets seem to be broken, and either disappear or have bad wrapping
-Removing resource widgets seems to somewhat stop this resource crawl.
