Elyssa CPU hog!!

Postby Tony Schulte on Tue Jun 17, 2008 11:10 pm

Hi everybody... Im having a bit of an issue with elyssa... After having instaled with the promise of a "snappier" system compared to daryana... I have found quite the opposite... The system is very sluggish and slllloooooooowwwww, It seems to be extra high CPU usage, but in [system monitor], the cpu usages of the individual apps don't add up to the 100% or so of cpu usage reported in the graph display.

Whats going on? anything I should check?

It is possible that more visual effects were enabled by default in Mint 5 versus Mint 4. If that is your case, you may wish to verify your settings. Perhaps it is a quick and easy fix.

Was this a fresh install or an upgrade?

This was a fresh install...
INterestingly enough, this exact same machine was able to run the "extra" visual effects in daryana very easily... but now, with the odd CPU behavior (I suspect) Elyssa draggs along with hercky-jercky wobbly windows and cube etc. Applications take longer than before to load as well...

Sounds like 2 window managers are running.

Go into gconf-editor under desktop>gnome>applications>window_manager. My window manager is compiz, for example. I would also make sure under mintDesktop that Gnome Compositing is not checked.
