I have installed Ubuntu onto my old Windows Vista laptop but unfortunately it is running very slow. I also live in a region of Germany which has a very poor internet connection and I am unable to download any lightweight distribution as the Ubuntu download took me 6 hours.
I have tried many thing to get Ubuntu to run faster such as installing
compizconfig-settings-manager and disabling the blur in Unity, I also decreased
swappiness to ten, and installed the Preload Daemon. On my desktop performance was increased , however my laptop is still low after these changes. My idea is to remove Unity completely and change my desktop environment to LXDE but I don't know how to do that.
