KDE Ram Usage

All issues related to Garuda Linux and its assistance
My ram usage is this...
But how it's saying low ram and getting slow...
Btw I opened the terminal after the notification
What's causing the problem

No picture from terminal outputs.
If you include terminal outputs in your post please use the proper output format in your post. Using "~" 3 times above and "~" 3 times below the text block will provide a readable, raw look.

Images can be read worse, are not searchable and copyable for further search.

and post inxi like in wiki above. :slight_smile:

Mhh, RTFM :slight_smile:
Include the output of “inxi -Fxxxza” in your post. This gives the people trying to resolve the issue proper information on the hardware used.

You have only 4GB of RAM, and it is 70% used.

Either run fewer applications at the same time, or buy more RAM.
