My system became very slow out of the sudden, yesterday Compiz was running extremely smooth, today it started working very slow and slowing the computer.
What I've done so far was to resize my swap partition to 6 gigabytes (my computer has 3 gigabytes of RAM), before it was on 5.1 gigabytes, so I though that was the reason of this but still not.
Also I tested running only metacity by running
metacity --replace and also with Mutter. With metacity works really great no problem but, in the other hand, with mutter the computer works slower than running compiz instead.
I am using the Nvidia driver version 173.14.28 and my X Server version as reports the NVidia X Server Settings is the 11.0.
My Linux kernel running on this computer is 2.6.35-25-generic and my ubuntu version is 10.10.
Any help will be appreciated.
