First of all i'm a moderate newbie ( just a little more than a newbie :) I have an old computer that have 2gb of ram and intel atom n455 cpu (dell mini 1018). I want to install a linux distro for daily usage. Using office programs, checking my mails, reading some rss feeds, surfing on web, etc
I tried several distros from lightest window managers to some heavier desktop environments. Such as openbox, fluxbox, flwm, etc to lxde, xfce, etc
(Distros that i tried: Tiny Core Linux, Lubuntu, Xubuntu, Debian LXDE, Debian XFCE, Raspbian for PC, Sparky, Crunchbang, Bunsenlabs, etc)
All of them works slowly but usable. (applications cold starts & web surfing was slow) On the other hand Youtube and other video streaming services was laggy. When i want to watch something on Youtube (or other streaming services) videos was laggy (or freezes) but sound was good.
I searched what was the problem. Some people says install flash player, others says install codecs, some other says it's the driver problem. I tried flash plugin, installing codecs to os, installing codecs to chromium, installing graphics driver, etc. Nothing did solve this.
Btw lately i installed Pale Moon and it's laggy again but more less than other browsers. I tried several browsers like Chromium, Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Vivaldi, etc. Best was the Pale Moon and still best it is.
Please help for this situation. Thanks from now
Note: Latest system i installed is Xubuntu 18.04. I installed again all codecs in Synaptic, all codecs for Chromium and still using the Pale Moon :)
Note2: Kodi's Youtube player better than Pale Moon but i don't want use my pc like an Apple TV. Not usable for my daily usage like that.
Note3: When i check addional drivers always shows me no additional drivers...
