It looks like we all have sluggish experience, with @PhoenixAwakened having most sluggish experience, and @ricklinux with most dynamic ( least Sluggish ) experience !!

Let’s see who can dethrone @PhoenixAwakened and @ricklinux from their level of sluggishness…
:joy: :stuck_out_tongue:

That is as weird as they come.

But I know that Manjaro has a couple of unique patches

All one can do is get the best out of your available physical system resource. 4 GB RAM and old-ish CPU with iGPU. I’ve been using Plasma with that hardware without much problems. Just have to be mindful of a few things.

Try not to open a million browser tabs at once. Don’t use Browser and Gimp/Digikam or other resource-heavy apps at the same time. Set swappiness to 10 and always setup a swap. Try zen kernel.

Not surprisingly, most resource-intensive apps are Web browsers, video/image editing software etc. In terms of Browsers, Palemoon is lightweight. I use Firefox after going bonkers on config. :smiley:

P.S. Antix would be my recommendation for old hardware. But of course, Arch or vanilla Debian are great choices as well if you’re familiar with them.

Why? I have no issues with Firefox.

You think your connection is slow… check mine at work:

:scream:

Oh, now the problem is that my CPU can’t go above the base clock (2.5 GHz) :man_facepalming:
(I have enabled Turbo boost beforehand)

Yes, I have set swappiness to 10 and I also researched and learned that zram has better performance than regular swap. Do you think I should try setting up zram?

So you still work in 1997?? That’s wild.

If you have 16 gb or more ram, zram is better than regular swap. Even with less ram, zram gives improved performance.

Absolutely! I even notice a difference when I have only my home directory instead of on the SSD, on the data HDD. Thus, the .config files are all on a slow HDD with only 5400 rpm and I notice that in the significantly slowed system startup. Everything on SSD and the box runs again!

I am very, very, very sluggish especially in the morning … :yawning_face:
