Lag with Cinnamon and NIVIDIA Drivers

Post by vinay87 » Sun Mar 18, 2018 1:19 am

Hi all,
I installed LM 18.3 Cinnamon on my desktop. I also installed the NVIDIA drivers using the .run file.
I have a GeForce 1060 3GB model that I use for display, and despite how many times I try this, I keep getting a strange lag. If I hold down a key for instance, the character prints, but it pauses in between.

Firefox scroll lags, videos lag, the works.

Could someone help me with this?
