Hello, I have a strange bug: in fedora 22 (KDE spin 64bit) freshly installed a few days ago, when i try to resize windows sometimes it happens that all the GUI freezes (only the cursor moves) and the only thing I can do is to kill Xorg from tty2 and start a new session. This seems to happen only when resizing the window using the left button of the mouse (near the border of the window) and not using alt + right button. If this can help, i'm using bumblebee and the kernel version is 4.1.3-201.fc22.x86_64. Thank you

I've installed bumblebee following this guide.

I think there are no problems in bumblebee. Couldn't it be a kde bug?

I've noticed that pressing "Enter" makes everything ok, reverting the freeze. What's going on?

Probably it is graphic driver bug. Which graphic card do you use?

I've found a workaround for this bug. I had changed the default theme (Fedora Twenty Two) with the theme "Breeze"". Changing back the theme to the original one seems to fix the issue.

As I said at the beginning, probably it's was a bug, and you are the one who had to figure out how to solve that bug. I am glad you solved the problem.
