    Re: Computer lags, mouse freezes

    What you might find useful is a dashboard to inspect resources. You can do this through command line but I recommend this utility.

    Stacer.

    You can install using these commands ...

    Later edited ppa: below due to a typo error.

    sudo add-apt-repository ppaguzhaninan/stacer -y
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install stacer -y


    I would look at Resources (from menu) and look for where there is heavy usage. CPU or RAM.

    Also try running browser without a multitude of tabs open

    Post #11 says it all. There's nothing unusual in your hardware but you need to understand its limitations, namely RAM.

    Re: Computer lags, mouse freezes

    I understand the RAM, tabs etc... however, this ran perfectly before the upgrade to 19.10. Then after I have all the issues. I may be able to associate this to LibreOffice, which also upgraded with Ubuntu upgrade as well.

    CAN an upgrade to 19.10 dramatically change the RAM requirements? To the point the performance suffers? I'm sure I can add some RAM, but. I was going to wait until the next version comes out and see if that makes a difference.

    In-place upgrades can always break a system. It's not specific to 19.10.

    Fresh install every time.

    For some reason when I paste the PPA from the stacer website a smiley icon appears.

    See original post above when direct copying from web site. Somehow string ("colon followed by o") translates into smiley.

    I suggest that you refer to Stacer website and use installation instructions there.

    They do work for me. And Stacer is my daily tool.

    Attempted to install from apt get, failed.

    I think I'll attempt a fresh install when 20.04 comes out in a few weeks.

    I don't know why PPA doesn't work for you. Another method is to download the *.deb file from here then use Gdebi to install.

    Re: Computer lags, mouse freezes

    Two things, I was able to install stacer, works well. using getdebi.

    I ordered 16 of RAM and it came in today (up from 4). Kinda overkill, but why not, right. I installed and the problem is now gone.

    Thanks all for the assistance.
