Hi all! I’ve got a question, not a real problem: i would like to know if there is a way to make my laptop’s graphic a little bit more smooth and reactive, because sometimes i give a look to other distros (even if my home is OpenSuse lol!) and i see that can be better than that. What can i check to improve this side?
I’m on a HP 250 G6, with 8GB RAM, VGA Intel HD Graphics 620, CPU I5-7200U and i use an SSD drive. I’m using GNOME as de.
In the system BIOS (F10 at boot), any setting for GPU ram? Perhaps explain some more on how you mean reactive as in startup of applications? Perhaps a list of applications that you have issues with?
I’m looking for a general improve, not for a particolar application. In example: also when i enter the gnome application list pressing “windows button” on the keyboard and navigate switching windows, looking for any application, the animation are not completely fluid, are a little bit “rough” most of the times. In other distros (on the same laptop) i’ve seen these animation more smooth, but i’ve not changed nothing in BIOS, so i don’t know if it can depend from there (however i will give a look also there ).
I would like to repeat that it’s not a real problem, just a minor thing that could be a little better i think, but i don’t know how .
Have a nice day!
I’ve bad experience with Wayland, sometimes i had problem to start many apps, other times i had a lesser smooth behaviour than X. I’m not sure if it was my fault or not but it happaned many times so i definitively choose X.
That’s a reasonable score, mine was 1082… no recompiling won’t help, you could look at excluding modules to speed up kernel boot (yours is 2.5 seconds), but very slow on your userspace, I would expect sub 10 seconds, unless manually logging in?
Startup finished in 2.118s (kernel) + 1.810s (initrd) + 2.873s (userspace) = 6.802s
graphical.target reached after 2.859s in userspace
