I did a clean install of Ubuntu 12.04 about three hours ago. Now I've been installing all the programs I use, etc...
However, I seem to be having a problem with a VERY laggy dash, to the point where it's almost completely unresponsive. When I open the dash and search for a program like Firefox, as I type Firefox the letters come about a second after I push the key, and the whole system starts to freeze up. When I try to highlight a program I recently used the mouse literally skips across the screen as if the screen cant keep up with it. Is anyone else having similar problems? Also, I know this is a longshot, but could any programs I have installed slow down my system? I'd love to get this sorted out, because it's a pain to have such an unresponsive menu, and I really don't want to use Gnome 3.4.
The problem is it doesn't "know" what my graphics driver is. Which is clearly a problem, how can I fix this?
According to Ubuntu 11.10 I had Intel Ironlake Mobile Graphics, according to this I have nothing. (Didn't have this problem in Ubuntu 11.10)
- Intel Core i3 CPU M370 2.40GHZ
- 3GB of installed ram
- 64 bit Ubuntu
- Intel Ironlake Mobile Graphics
Anything else needed?
