    Ubuntu 19.04 Slow

    Without going into details such as hardware etc, I want to point out that Ubuntu 19.04 is awfully slow, to the extent that I have to grub back to 18.04.2.

    Has anyone experienced the same slowness?

    After most of the changes mentioned in threads above my SSD boots quicker:
    fred@Bionic-Z170N:~$ systemd-analyze
    Startup finished in 3.089s (kernel) + 9.246s (userspace) = 12.336s
    graphical.target reached after 9.223s in userspace

    Was on the order of 30+ sec.

    19.04 on HDD still slower, not sure if I implemented all the settings changes, yet or not, or if just because HDD.

    The biggest problem I am having with 19.04 vis-a-vis 18.04.2 (and everything else such as 19.10 budgie) is that Chrome is very slow.

    I am not sure if that's because of update, but looks like same story for xubuntu updated from 18 to 19. I have dual boot with ubuntu 16 and it works the same, fine, faster.

    My was a fresh install (never a fan of version upgrade).

    The combination GNOME and Firefox on 19.04 is faster than any GNOME before on my machine.
    Can this be a Chrome issue? What about Chromium?

    Yes, this is a Chrome issue! I tried Chromium, strangely, it started OK but then it began trudging, just like Chrome.
    c
    Ubuntu 19.10 also crashed a couple of times, both occurred when running Chrome. Running Chrome in 19.04 was painfully slow, but no crash.

    1. To speed up the things in general: If your computer has enough RAM, swap usage can be reduced. This can be achieved by adding vm.swappiness=1 at the end of /etc/sysctl.conf.
    2. Analyze the boot procedure by the command systemd analyze critical-chain. I doubt you can save something there, but just in case.
    3. To speed up the browser, you can use memory as cache, not harddisk. You can also use the RAM disk as a cache, i.e. tmpfs. Enablle the options to empty the cache before exiting the browser application.
    4. Use a more lightweight distro like Lubuntu. Its memory footprint is very small, thus achieving another speed gain.


    If you had already looked at these things, ignore this post.
