OS Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit, fresh install from Ubuntu DVD
I have a problem:
My PC is running randomly slow. I installed Ubuntu 12.04 today, it installed fine (It took a long time, then the installation program was removing all the languages - almost 2 hours total). I selected to install EN (not my native language, but I want EN) and Ubuntu started downloading all Arabic and some Chinese for all LibreOffice apps and gnome ... annoying.
Now Ubuntu looks just fine, I got Web GL running, but all screen is flickering and my mouse cursor randomly stucking, Virtualbox made my Ubuntu crash. When I open Chromium, it all becomes laggy for a while. Flash videos and whole youtube looks terrible and laggy. Also trying to run HD Video (1080p) makes Ubuntu so laggy and that video as well. In default Movie Player HD video is laggy and low quality. Of course I use VLC Media Player (the best one for me) and there the video runs just fine, but I have very bad feeling when watching it, it is kind of slow like all Ubuntu and sometimes it got stuck.
I also tried 3D benchmark (the gears on the sides of a cube) and spent a lot of time messing with Terminal and trying some configs, nothing helped. I want an OS with GUI and not typing in Terminal like writing a nowell. If I wanted this, I would install Gentoo or something similar (I tried Gentoo, nice distro).
I do not want to install restricted graphics drivers. In one hour I scouted through all preinstalled programs in Ubuntu, also made all Ubuntu One Accounts and so.
Now I only want to make it running fast! Please help me.
