have you tried with other distro, or other desktop environment?

JoeSmith 12-05-2013 07:07 AM

Yea, I've tried Kali linux, its was acceptable.
But Desktop Enviromets ( gnome3 that comes with the installation ) is also slow as hell also XFCE.

would be nice to specify what does it exactly mean. What have you tried? What was slow? Only graphical apps or everything? what have you installed at all? Have you tried to check it with top? What about your display driver?

JoeSmith 12-05-2013 07:17 AM

pan64, mostly the terminal goes very slow on <tab>.

pan64 12-05-2013 08:30 AM

that is still insufficient info. which terminal? graphical or any? what should happen on <tab> (what do you expect) ?

And HOW did you install fedora and Kali
( i would not expect Kali to work well on this seeing as Networking is DISABLED BY DEFAULT )

also for some cup/gpu combos you need special software

that page is of almost no use
what ARE YOUR system specs
the make and model of the cup and GPU
and the amount of ram YOU have


For fedora's gnome3 Desktop to work you REALLY do need a full 3d card on a desktop

Have you used top to see what is using your cpu? I noticed when I first installed F19 a lot was going on in the background, it settled down after while. Another option, try running Gnome in classic mode. You can do this by clicking on Session below your login name in gdm. This might at least narrow the problem down to being something graphics related.
