Anybody has solution for this problem?

When I moved to Ubuntu 16 and ROS Kinetic from 14 and Indigo, I couldn't use QtCreator because of long latencies of GUI, it is very slow, when using autocompletion, going to definitions, refactoring, copying and so on.

This is common issue on two my computers and for my teammate.

For Ubuntu 14 and ROS Indigo it worked perfect.

Also it works OK for non-ROS projects.
