I've got an second hand notebook at work with low specs and installed Ubuntu 18.04. The GPU is very old and every effect makes the whole system lag. Is ther any way to reduce UI effects to improve performance?

I've found out that there's a "Tweak" tool and in the appearence tab is an option where you can turn off animations. Just that made the computer breathe again.

  • This is not a valid solution. What's the purpose of having a high end computer that can run games but cannot render simple UI animations? There should be a solution where people can enable the animations and have no graphic issues at all. – Alexandre Verri Jul 23 '18 at 20:12

    Its not a high end computer and I'm not using games on. The tweak tool worked just fine. – Balbinator Jul 25 '18 at 1:51

  • sudo apt install gnome-tweaks to install it. – Cees Timmerman Oct 23 at 8:31
