I have dual boot windows 10 and Ubuntu (with kde-plasma) windows 10 is currently on my SSD and Ubuntu is on my HDD but Ubuntu is reallyyyy slow right now and i want to speed up it should i reinstall the Ubuntu on my SSD near to the windows 10? how can i do this or i can use ramdisk for some speedup i/o or sth. some forums says usr/local should be on SSD and home on HDD whats are them and my new programs that i installed on Ubuntu where are they going? idk.

thats my laptop specs:

  • 16gb ram (i have more than ram that i used gerenally so i want to use it for sth like ramdisk to speed up system)
  • 256gb nvme-ssd
  • 1tb hdd
  • i7-8750H

i am gonna use Ubuntu for coding java and js and daily use.

my current partition details:

  • SSD: windows efi and windows partition
  • HDD: storage + Ubuntu efi + Ubuntu partition + swap

i have 2 efi partitions so i select disks from bios instead of using grub menu.

i am planning to do this:

  • SSD: windows efi and windows partition + Ubuntu partition(is 50gb enough?)
  • HDD: storage + Ubuntu efi + swap + (maybe some Ubuntu partitions such as home tmp sth)

    What about ubuntu is slow? Slow to boot? Slow to open programs? Slow to do large computations? Slow to compile? It'd be worth defining what you mean by slow, as well as determining the root cause of such a slow down rather than just obliterating your current install. – j-money Feb 4 at 10:29
  • For the record my ubuntu machine which is running on a 5 year old HDD boots in about 11s and I am able to jump to a command line nearly instantly, and the hardware is significantly worse than yours. – j-money Feb 4 at 10:30
  • If you add a new install to an ext4 as / (root) on SSD you can make it 25GB. I use 25 or 30 GB for / but actual use in that is less than 10GB. But I have all the data in /home really in HDD and folders linked back to /home in /. askubuntu.com/questions/1013677/… & askubuntu.com/questions/1058756/… Check mounted partitions: df -h and folder sizes: cd / or cd /home sudo du -hc --max-depth=1 – oldfred Feb 4 at 14:29
  • @j-money ubuntu boots about 1minutes (windows is about 15sec) and programs are opening slowly it looks like some lag or response time is so high i am clicking for the terminal and waiting 2-3 seconds?? i also use intelij-idea sometimes when i first time opened it respons slowly menus and even typing after a while it backs to the normal. by the way i have installed kde-plasma desktop does it matter? – Telefon Makinesi Feb 5 at 15:39
  • @oldfred so okey then i am gonna shrink 40gb from my ssd and install the root there and home to my hdd? is this just fine? – Telefon Makinesi Feb 5 at 15:40
