QGIS 1.8.0 has been working fine for a number of months. Then I upgraded my system generally, which possibly included upgrades to xorg-server and QT, and now QGIS is sluggish/unresponsive to the point of being unusable.

Running from the command line shows a number of error messages:

Not sure which of these error messages might have been there before when everything was working. Any clues? I'd like to get QGIS back again...

So far I have tried recompiling QGIS & a number of other libraries.

I'm on Gentoo.

Hi No idea what most of that meant but i have noticed qgis get slower in the past few days. I am putting it down to my system but there seems to be a bug in it somewhere. –  Gerald Jan 18 '13 at 11:27
    
Possibly the upgrade broke your opengl acceleration. Can you test one of the opengl examples in Qt? –  BradHards Jan 19 '13 at 10:22

To answer my own question, the issue was the "QT Graphics System" setting. As part of the upgrade I had inadvertently switched to to the 'opengl' setting (which apparently is experimental) rather than 'raster' (which is the default). Users on Gentoo can do eselect qtgraphicssystem list to see the current setting and eselect qtgraphicssystem set raster to set it (back) to raster if needed. Everything back to normal now! –  Paul Feb 3 '13 at 1:15
    
Just for the records, this has happened in (the past under) Kubuntu as well -- very annoying. –  Nikos Alexandris Aug 27 '13 at 7:53
