    Just to show you what I meant with poor performance:

    At the begin I click the minimized window of eclipse to get it back to the top. As you can see it needs more than 20 seconds before the window is fully painted :\

    Only by checking your log file.

    Code:
    (II) EXA(0): Driver registered support for the following operations:
    (II)         Solid
    (II)         Copy
    (II)         Composite (RENDER acceleration)
    


    You are using EXA, which is good. It's accelerating those specific drawing functions.

    Code:
    (II) intel(0): direct rendering: XF86DRI Enabled
    


    Direct Rendering is enabled in the X server, which is also good.

    Code:
    (II) AIGLX: Loaded and initialized /usr/local/lib/dri/i965_dri.so
    


    Accelerated indirect GLX is enabled, which is also good.

    Code:
    (WW) intel(0): Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" is not used
    (WW) intel(0): Option "RenderAccel" is not used
    (WW) intel(0): Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" is not used
    (WW) intel(0): Option "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" is not used
    


    None of these are valid options with the current intel driver. There should be no harm in having them in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, but there's certainly no need for them.

    By all accounts, your X server is setup and configured the way it should be. I will admit, though, that 20 seconds to redraw eclipse is an awfully long time. I really have no explanation for that.

    EDIT: These is part of the reason that I've stopped recommending intel GPUs to FreeBSD users.

    I should stuck with NVidia, I never had any problems with these video cards.
    But it's too late now.

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Ok, I just switched to Gnome ( it's reminded why I'm using KDE ). It's seems to work a bit better than KDE.
    Thanks to everybody for help
