Re: Extreme Lag and Blocking when ram reaches 80%

This doesn't answer your original question, but at a rough guess, your browser is taking up about 2 to 2.5GB of RAM. This should also be addressed. Have you got many extensions/addons? i do have many extensions installed, but i'm not looking to reduce memory usage as i already know what's taking so...

Re: Extreme Lag and Blocking when ram reaches 80%

check your swappiness, that seems low for the amount of RAM installed, like it's not flushing data from RAM to swapfile. It's definitely using all the RAM. cat /etc/sysctl.conf when you run the "top" command, you want the mem column lined up, so click on it once or twice to bring the most memory us...

Re: Extreme Lag and Blocking when ram reaches 80%

The only posts that I have read concerning Cinnamon using very large amounts of CPU seem to centre around video card/driver issues. I think that a copy of the output of inxi -Fxz put into the terminal would be very useful here. That command lists out the full details of your equipment without showi...

Re: Extreme Lag and Blocking when ram reaches 80%

The top command in the terminal will show what functions are consuming RAM & CPU in descending order. free -h shows what the system sees as RAM & Swap & how much (in total) is being used/free. Both are worth doing & sharing when you hit the 80%. thank you for explaining !! so here 's a screenshot o...

Re: Extreme Lag and Blocking when ram reaches 80%

free -h When you think it's near 80%, run that in terminal, copy the results. You also need to know the difference between GiB and GB. https://www.bing.com/search?q=8+GiB+%3D+GB https://www.bing.com/search?q=8+GB+%3D+GiB 1 - can you share why this command should be used ? instead of just writing an...

Re: Rounded Bottom Corners

i did check the border- radius gtk 3 method and nothing works,
the trick is in the windows manager, because if i give a border-radius to everything i'l still have this empty black background between the frame and the content

In the OpenGL section of the nVidia X Server Settings, you may have to disable "Allow flipping". It's worth a shot. Simple Screen Recorder warns the user that this may happen and offers to disable it permanently or per session.
it worked ! ... thank you
