so it is probably not akonadi or baloo which is causing your system to
crawl, but plasmascreen.

with the hint from Carlos to use iotop: baloo_file_extractor works hard on
the disk (and, as Gertjan mentioned, the old index DB was already
removed), but the real problem comes from plasmashell

so perhaps you need to examine baloo's configuration or wait for baloo to
finish rebuilding it's indexes

you do have the option to suspend the indexing to rule out, or not, baloo
as the problem.

As written, ballo seems not to be the problem in that case.

not a solution but will probably releave your system, in a terminal

kquitapp5 plasmashell && sleep 2 && kstart plasmashell & disown &&
10 && exit

that is one line.

Since I had run this command it seems that plasmashell is more responsive.
No more breals for minutes....

does "minutes..." mean you have relief or only momentary and then the same
lack of system response?

if this provides relief, it would seem that baloo was not really the
problem but the video drivers.

After I played some more with the command, it is _not_ giving durable relief.
It still needs a minute or so to open a new window, like dolphin.
Inside e.g. the terminal, output of top refreshes regulary

I would guess you are having problems with the drivers for your video
card. I cannot help you there.

Video driver is the i915 Intel driver. No special boot parameter.
Can this 'communication' between video driver and plasmashell be monitored

have we determined that video is the problem or are we chasing a path
which will not provide a solution?

understanding that *you* want to solve your problems and gain knowledge
while doing so, your hesitation to provide requested details is not making
others attempts to provide you solution any easier. please be more

Hm, I though I have phrased that above, sorry itf that did not come through
properly. So yes, it looks it is video/plasmashell. Even the text while typing
is partly stalled for some seconds, until it arrives
