I got a question.
On my linux machine, gnome feels… sluggish.
It’s running Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, and I havn’t modified it in any way.
But opening some programs, ex the calculator, takes several seconds. And when browsing files, especially pictures, it sometime takes it several seconds to start showing thumbnails. Or generating them. Even though I have been in that particular folder before… It’s like it “forgets” the thumbnails after a reboot/power cycle?
Is there any way to improve this? At least for the file browsing part. I’ve been through the settings, but I haven’t seen any options that could improve it?
The machine in question is an I5 6600K @ 4.5 GHz, 16 GB ram @ 2400 MHz cl12 or 13, and Ubuntu is running of a Samsung 970 Pro.
I know the cpu is getting on in years, but it shouldn’t have any problems just running Ubuntu snappy imo?
