Kstars 3.3.8 Sluggish performance. #47532
I'm using Kstars 3.3.8 on my mac OS Mojave to control an RPI4 driven setup. Every time I open anything in Kstars that involves opening a finder window, the window itself stays frozen for about 1 minute or two before I can navigate to the directory I want. And it happens every time a finder window populates.

It might be my trusty old mac showing its age, but this wasn't a thing until I updated to 3.3.8. Anyone else have this issue?

Thanks,
Hatim

Can you try the 3.3.9 dmg that I just posted in the forum the other day? see if it is still a problem. I don't know that I have seen this behavior before. One way to check it would be to run KStars from the terminal to see if any error prints out. I suspect that there isn't any but just in case.

i just tried it and it's still happening, but it seems a bit faster now. More like 15-30 seconds instead of a few minutes.
