[SOLVED] Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon lagging like 20 FPS

Post by TotalLinuxNoob » Fri Sep 21, 2018 7:32 am

Its like a curse...
I have installed Linux and it was fluent like 60 FPS.
The next day i started Linux and it was like 20 FPS.
Okay, i have restored the system with Timeshift and it was again like 60 FPS.
The next day i started Linux, it was like 20 FPS again.

Okay... i have installed Linux completely new again. It was fine and like 60 FPS.
The next day i started Linux, it was again like 20 FPS..
I have repeated this 2 more times! So i can say that Linux cant stay stable at like 60 FPS, when i shut down the pc and start it the next day again.

confused! Why cant Linux just stay stable?
What am i doing wrong?
I cant work with a like 20 FPS lagging system... its totaly annyoing and hurts my eyes so see that laggy cursor.

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz
enter this code listed below into terminal, it will give FPS results in 5 second intervals...let run for about 30 seconds and just copy and paste results here...

Thanks for the command lines, very useful!

I have fixed it by my self.
I have used Linux on my HDD, but as soon as i have installed it on my SSD, it has started to work without lags anymore.

Seems like Linux Mint 19 is not made for HDDs out of the box?
