I see tons of people complaining about Unity speed and I think the problem is not with the video drivers.
When I login to
Gnome Classic the system is behaving just fine, but when on Unity I can barely do use it: windows are moved hard, terminal is damn slow.
Is there any solution or bug that I should track?
- Ubuntu 12.04
- Two monitors setup
- Latest Nvidia proprietary drivers (tested with default ones also, no change)
- 6GB RAM, Xeon @ 2.8
- Nvidia Driver 280.13 - Quadro NVS 295 with 8 cores 256MB RAM.
lspci | grep VGA 02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G98 [Quadro NVS 295] (rev a1) uname -a Linux sorins 3.0.0-16-generic #29-Ubuntu SMP Tue Feb 14 12:48:51 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Update: also tried latest nvidia drivers from nvidia, still Unity was unusable, initially working fine but after several hours becoming slow, even for very simple things like terminal.
Currently the only solution that worked was to switch to KDE. Now this is running just fine.
