Major Slow to Freezing Peformance on File Manager

Post by fat_beard »

I hope I have this in the right area;
I am having such a time that takes my patience to their limits.

A few examples;
1) On my file manager(NEMO) When I select a photo and then exit out of it, I cannot select another photo or right click or change to a different folder for about 30 seconds to 2 minutes. I am able to select, lets say another program, or go into my FireFox or right click on desktop, I can minimize the File Manager screen but that's it.

2) The same things happens as well when I am moving files(pictures) to another folder, and there is a already a same named file; I cancel OR skip that file and it will move the remaining files, but during that time it will just hang/freeze on my and ofcourse even when files are moved, it will again take 30 seconds up to 3 minutes before I can edit, move, rename, delete or select another file or folder.

I appreciate any and all help; this is just hair ripping issues that would make my experience with LM so much better. I read that for LM 20 that the NEMO File Manger is getting upgraded.

Post by mikaelrask »

hey fat_beard try with the lts kernal 4.15 your computer is almost 10 years old 12/15/2010. yes nemo in linux mint is getting workat at. second you might want to consider try the mate or xfce version of linux mint they use less cpu power then cinnamon for your computer. the 5,3 kernal you using atm are for computer around 2018 and forward.

good luck

Hello

CPU Power ... I got the same problems with a 2015 AMD APU (Kaveri) though the frequencies of the cores are more than 4 x 3600 MHz when needed, and I noticed that from a Mint 19.3 USB installation program, with the default settings of Grub, so cores limited to their basic frequency 3100 MHz, Nemo is working perfectly well !! as well as explorer in Win XP, so I feel allowed to pretend the problem is not here

PS : I am with the 5.3 kernel too but previously I had the 4.18 and 4.15 and i don't remember but probablly there was less problems of that kind
Linux Mint 19.3 64bits Cinnamon (Kernel 5.3.0-23)
AMD APU A8 7600 (3100 MHz to 3800 MHz) with DDR3 1833 MHz 4 GB x2
(CPU limited to 4x 3100 Mhz default by no support of the Turbo-core, then after editing grub, supports up to only 3600 MHz)
