Those two seem to be the source of your VM problem. Maybe an XFCE
wizard can tell you why they are using so much VM. I have no idea.
It doesn't seem kosher to have to reboot a GNU/Linux system to recover
full responsivity. That sounds like a MS Windows solution ... or am I
being just too optimistic?
How do I address problems with a kbuildsycoca and iceape-bin?
kbuildsycoca normally only runs for several seconds after changing
something in KDE. If it's running non-stop you have a problem.
It's probably safe just to kill kbuildsycoca but a reboot would be
As for iceape-bin, it shouldn't be using that much CPU except in
very short bursts. Maybe you have a bad plugin, or maybe it's a
bad interaction with the multiple windowing systems.
You have two gdm's, and xfce desktop, and a lot of KDE running.
You have several heavy applications running. That's way more
than will fit comfortably in a gig of RAM.
If you can't quickly find a solution to those two xfce memory
hogs I would suggest dropping xfce and gdm, and using kdm. You're
not saving anything with xfce as you're apps are so heavily KDE.
