Recent Lag Issues w/ Julia LXDE

Postby cinomrah » Tue Dec 04, 2012 1:38 am

Hello all,

I have been using Mint 10 (Julia) LXDE for about a year now with hardly any bumps in the road. This being my first distro I am so far glad. I switched over due so that my netbook would run faster. A Lenovo S10-3 since you ask. Up until a month ago things were working great, and then, out of the blue, everything is running slow. Videos skip, my window manager takes seconds to load, my cpu fan is constantly on, and given enough time buttons stop showing on the tool bar. I am still very new to linux, and any help would be gladly appreciated.

inxi as follows

CPU[-Single core Intel Atom N455 (-HT-) clocked at 1667.000 Mhz-] Kernel[-2.6.38-020638-generic i686-] Up[-59 min-] Mem[-211.1/991.0MB-] HDD[-252.0GB(61.0% used)-] Procs[-130-] Client[-Shell-] inxi[-1.4.12-]

Thank you in advance

Mint 10 LXDE is not supported since April 2012. It's better to move on, Mint 12 LXDE is the latest Mint LXDE release but is also on it last months of support so it's better to try Mint with XFCE. Both Mint XFCE and Mint 13 XFCE are good options and Mint 14 XFCE RC should soon be available. I have a netbook with the Intel N450 and use Mint 13 with Cinnamon, it's not fast but it's OK.
