Update 20200922 I have tested LibreOffice for a while. It did cause Xorg memory explosion again as explained below. I am excerpting my own personal notes here, please bear with the rough form of it. The graph that I will attach next will show the point. I started using a LibreOFfice program at

Based on my experience above, I can say with good degree of certainty that the LibreOffice was the culprit. I will restart the entire machine and try this again one more time. Wirawan -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu-X, which is subscribed to xorg-server

I have tested two applications so far... 1) firefox + MATE terminal 2) xpra + MATE terminal I'm sorry I can't not use MATE terminal because I still have to use part of the laptop for work. In either case I did not notice too significant a memory growth. Again, the memory usage numbers

Brief comment. Have restarted X server 3 days ago to run pretty much just Firefox + MATE terminal. Will let you know later how this goes. So far the X server memory usage (RSS) is about 125-130MB. Which is high, but not super terrible. Usually it takes a few more days before the usage swells.

Reopened because there's probably still a bug somewhere. Although this bug is now assigned to xorg-server I don't actually think Xorg is to blame. Xorg just owns the memory that applications have requested resources within. The Bug Description shows Xorg's RSS creeping over 700MB which does sound

Hi Daniel, responding to your comment: In my years of using Linux desktop (in particular, XFCE), I have never experienced memory explosion caused by Xorg server like what I described in this bug report. Please allow me to be a bit candid here. It seems like the newer versions of desktop software

After such a long period of time you are likely experiencing multiple leaks from multiple apps. You would need to do exhaustive testing with a single app over a long period to narrow down which is to blame. It's probably not worth it, but maybe you can identify the most problematic apps given more

Thanks. I am testing XFCE desktop for now. A brief comment on XFCE experience. The starting size of Xorg process under XFCE is ~100-130 MB, but after 10 days of usage with mostly Firefox & terminal windows (multiple windows for each app, and sometimes pdf viewer [atril]) it grew to 270-300 MB. I

I suggest trying a different desktop environment with the same apps for a while, so we can see if MATE/Marco is the main factor. ** Also affects: marco (Ubuntu) Importance: Undecided Status: New -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu-X, which is
