Well lately my 11.10 has been incredibly slow and I don't know why. Like everything is always really slow. Moving Windows across the screen or minimizing/maximizing is extremely slow. I don't know if the animations or what, it's just miserably slow. This was not happening in Windows7.

  • please tell about your installation type and hardware details

    Sounds like a graphics driver issue. What video card do you have? If using nvidia, please run the terminal command lspci -d10de: -vvnn and add the output to your question.

    Could you post the output of free -t -m when your system is slow? And could you tell us, if there are high %CPU numbers with ps -eo pcpu,args | sort -k 1 -r | head -10 (you don't have to post that output if you don't want, just if there are high numbers).

  • Yeah, same here. My advice would be to just stick with 11.04 until 12.04 comes out.

  • if anything update the graphics drivers, decrase swap usage and use a lighter desktop environment like lxde. Nov 13 '11 at 12:32
