As much as I love using Inkscape, for whatever reasons, while on Ubuntu, it's real hard to use because of freezes from using it. I don't see it using a lot of CPU, but it sucks the RAM completely dry. I've tried this on all 3 machines with dual boot Windows/Ubuntu, and 1 older machine with nothing but Ubuntu installed, and get the same results. Whenever I zoom or add layers, or just in general, use Inkscape, it starts hanging, freezing, greying out, and locking up.
So I opened Inkscape in Windows and don't get the same issues. I refuse to post it as a bug, because the bugs on this issue are backed up since 2006. Devs say they generally get around to checking/fixing bugs within 6 months... anyone who complains or reports bugs are generally asked to help contribute. Is this standard?

Any help will be apprecited.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

Since this isn't the "official" Inkscape forum, I urge you to post this at one where it's far more likely to be read by people who participate in the updating of Inkscape. There's a link at Inkscape's site and maybe even a way to communicate with developers there. Here's one link I found:
