KDE It slipped by us, but the KDE team has released another minor bugfix release of KDE 4.2, version 4.2.3, a few days ago. Being a bugfix release, there are few user-visible changes, but still, there are a few things that stand out. "Online IMAP filtering in KMail has been fixed, KMail's system tray icon now reacts to changes to folder properties and updates the number of emails shown there automatically, and bugfixes, performance improvements and optimization in KHTML - painting and interoperability with web standards has been further improved."

I have a Radeon Mobility X300 in a ThinkPad T43. It uses the r300 driver which hasn't seen much work lately because, as I understand it, there's not much left to do.

Support for the r300 graphics chips has been dropped by ATI proprietary driver for Linux recently. If you have installed a recent Linux distribution (say Jaunty) then you may have stepped backwards a bit.

I don't use the proprietary drivers, I use the open source ones from Git. I don't use Ubuntu either. Like I said before, the open source drivers are plenty fast for xcompmgr and compiz as well as Qt 3 and even the latest GTK+. Qt4, on the other hand, has been getting progressively slower with each new release.

Try march version of fglrx, it should be a lot better than the OSS r300 driver.
