Hi, so i just installed Ubuntu 8.10 on my desktop, done it loads of times no problems, and Ubuntu asks me whether I should enable Restricted Drivers, i enable the recommended one, and afterwards i rebooted and now everything runs slow :S.

In the past i've run envyng to get the drivers & install them, but i thought you could do it this way too, anybody got a fix?

Nvidia or ATI?

If it's a graphic(s)/video driver...

#1 - ATI Hotkeys may be slowing the computer down, not sure how to disable in Ubuntu.

#2 - A NVIDIA poller may be slowing the computer down, but I don't know a lot about NVIDIA.

If not, please post type.
