    Ubuntu 12.10 is working slow

    Hi, I have Ubuntu 12.10 installed in my PC and is laggy. These are my hardware, OS and software specifications:
    Processor: Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU E4500 @ 2.20GHz × 2
    RAM: 2.0 GiB
    Graphics: Nvidia GeForce 7300 SE/7200 GS/PCIe/SSE2
    OS: Ubuntu 12.10 32-bit
    Display manager: GDM
    Desktop environment: Gnome classic
    Window manager: Compiz

    The most laggy time is while using firefox. While typing the texts types laggy and hangs for few seconds. While scrolling I get two displays(same text typed together) It's also laggy while playing videos from youtube and vlc.

    In compiz effects I have only Animations, Window Decoration and Wobbly Windows enabled. I don't want to disable compiz.

    Please help and suggest me to make my Ubuntu work faster. Thank you.

    compiz needs too much ram/power on that hardware, you might not use it with heavy browser like firefox.

    Either use chromium, which works great with flash, and/or login as gnome-classic (without effect)

    Also do are you using a proprietary graphics card driver? Or are you using the graphics driver that came installed when you installed Ubuntu?

    Then I have no choice and have to leave compiz. What are the alternatives for compiz?

    There were 5 options in Additional Drivers
    - Using NVIDIA binary Xorg driver, kernel module and VDPAU library from nvidia-current (proprietary, tested)
    - Using NVIDIA binary Xorg driver, kernel module and VDPAU library from nvidia-173 (proprietary)
    - Using X.Org X server - Nouveau display driver from xserver-xorg-video-nouveau (open source)
    - Using NVIDIA binary Xorg driver, kernel module and VDPAU library from nvidia-current-updates (proprietary)
    - Using Experimental NVIDIA binary Xorg driver, kernel module and VDPAU library from nvidia-experimental-304 (proprietary)

    I have choosen the first one:
    - Using NVIDIA binary Xorg driver, kernel module and VDPAU library from nvidia-current (proprietary, tested)

    I have a GTX 550 Ti card, and the "Test" driver worked, but I got some bugs with opening, firefox typing things like that. I install one of the newer drivers and I am flying right along. Can even play game on steam with no video lag. Maybe try that?

    not saying this will be the solution for you, but it was for me
