minted11: I suppose now is as good a time as any to mention that ATI's cards have usually not worked so well with Linux. It's turning around now, but the X1600 is from the 'bad old days'. I know I had a pretty grand struggle with my X1900 in earlier Ubuntu-releases in order to get Compiz running. (And meanwhile 2D ran just gloriously...) And later on, my chassi fried that thing... Anyway. FGLRX-drivers are the official drivers from ATI - which probably don't support your card anymore. There are open-source drivers, but last time I checked (how many years ago, now?) they didn't do 3D very well - though your card will be supported for sure.
If you're using VESA-drivers, that's bound to be the reason things are so slow for you. Um, just don't remove that set all at once, though - they're always good to have around for a rainy day.
FOR ALL GUYS:
People thanks for your patience and for your efforts to help me, I'm very grateful to all of you.
But still, I cant make my LINUX to run faster than drunken snail, and I did everything, I don't have any other ideas.
I realized I WAS using wubi install, and I realized it might be possible that Linux just don't have enough disk space to work, so I formated all disk space i could found, at the end I gained some 46GB of space just for Linux.
Also I formated windows7 system and finally installed LINUX MINT from LIVE CD, but nothing changed, it's still fast as drunken snail.
So I downloaded Xorg ATI driver for Radeon X1600 (my graphic card unfortunately), but now i can't run downloaded package !!!!
When I try to start install drivers, the message below pop ups:
'' Could not open the file /home/tvrtko/Downloads/a...ler-9-3-x86.x86_64.run.
gedit has not been able to detect the character encoding. Please check that you are not trying to open a binary file. Select a character encoding from the menu and try again''
Under that message, it's Character encoding menu, there i choose option ''Automatically Detected'', and still i can't open driver installation, in fact no matter what i choose from menu list, i can't open it.
Please, what i can do??!!
NOTE: my windows7 family is laughing a loud on me cause i advocate such slow linux.
