  1. [SOLVED] Re: Firefox for Linux media, videos, maps much slower and resource intensive than Chr

    Then search for "xrender", and you should see the setting there. It is enabled by default. Set it to "false".
  2. [SOLVED] Re: Firefox for Linux media, videos, maps much slower and resource intensive than Chr

    Thanks for the tips! I'll certainly use some of them.

    After much playing around (graphics card drivers, WebGL, etc.), I think I have found the culprit: gfx.xrender.enabled needs to be set to...

    No worries, thank you for your quick reply. It was working before I made these changes, so clearly it is something I did. I don't think it's vundle, after all I was using pathogen before that and...

    Re: Vim R plugin installation issue

    Hi,

    I recently made small changes to my vim setup, which for some reason means that now every time I try to start R from gVim, gVim freezes. It still works from vim. The only changes have been to...

    Compiling the latest stable ALSA version didn't do it for me. What I think made things a bit better (but not everything works yet) is adding the Ubuntu Audio Dev team PPA:
