Anyone heard of Faster Dapper. Follow the link below:


I have not tested it to see how effective it is in speeding up dapper. Dapper is fast enough for me at this point though. I may have to give this a try.

I read about it a week or so ago but dont really know too much about it. I started using xfce last night and crickey, thats what I call faster dapper.

edit; I just ran it, the startup maybe slightly faster but if it is I cant tell. From the login screen to everything loading I can notice a difference, probably takes a good 4-5 seconds off it.
As for applications loading faster again maybe slightly faster but not much.

Id say if you have a nice stable system already I wouldnt bother running it. But on the other hand if you dont really care and want the bleeding edge of ubutnu as they say, then go for it.

Yes, there's aready a post around here on that. It's okay, but it could make your system unstable or even disable some wanted things. I would suggest you select what you want from the script and run it one at a time. I already do some of it but i don't use preload or prelink(slows down my system) and i uninstall the services i don't want to run instead of disabling them. I do change my bash to dash, i blacklist ipv6. The script does run the reccommended tweaks you can find on the net all at once, but i would not reccommend it to anyone who did not have at least a basic understanding on how to fix things from terminal.
