    Re: 10.10 runs slow and jerky

    did the top command
    nothing interesting
    top two are xorg wtih 8% of cpu and pulseaudio with 5% of cpu. the others... under 0.7 % ...


    memory: xorg and chrome not eating more than 10% of my memory...

    so cpu and memory free, however system runs jerky.

    Having exactly the same problem. Was running 10.04 Netbook Edition on an older 1.6GHz Dell and found it to be nice and responsive; clean install to 10.10 and it's slow and jerky. Reminds me of the Bad Old Days when reinstalling Windows - it's like none of the drivers are working properly.

    Exactly the same here. The CPU and memory are not under load.

    Solved the problem by REMOVING the proprietary drivers, restarting and the activating them again, restarting again. Everything works like a charm now.

    what do you mean by proprietary drivers?

    Man both ubuntu 10.04 and 10.10 has been a disappointment.
