View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu GUI on VMware extremely slow

July 4th, 2010, 01:24 AM
Hello all,

I've installed ubuntu 9.10 on vmware. Allocated disk size of 100 GB + and yet not set up any new applications. This is a fresh install on vmware.

When I open terminal, it goes on fine. As soon as I try to open the menu or firefox or synaptic or any other gui based program, the whole thing freezes. They become extremely slow. I am using ubuntu 8.10 on hdd install, dual-boot with windows, and it's been cool.

Any other vm image is running happily. The new 9.10 set up behavior is unexpected.

Please suggest how this issue may be solved.
Your inputs are appreciated.

Many Thanks.
