    Lubuntu does not use all of my RAM

    http://pastebin.com/8dPByXAF free -m

    I have 2GB RAM and my Task Manager shows 410MB of 991MB used. I was hoping to see 410MB of 2000MB used. How do I add the missing 1GB?
    Thanks.

    how much ram is detected into system-monitor ?

    a possible explanation is that some amount of ram is used by the graphic system (in case of shared memory)

    I'm having the same problem, i.e. 4GB is installed, but sysinfo only displays 3.3GB.
    My computer and lubuntu are both 64 bit.

    How can check the size of the shared video memory?
