How do I make my Mint faster
How do I make my Mint faster.
How do I make my Ubuntu - Mint faster. (Applies for Desktop, Laptop and Note Book)
By default, Ubuntu, unfortunately too much tendency to start using the swap (virtual memory on the hard disk). Useful for servers, but not for normal use.
This speaks Ubuntu, especially with 512 MB of RAM or less, the swap too quickly. Who writes on the hard drive slow ubuntu considerably. Virtual memory on the hard disk is simply much slower than the "real" RAM.
The swap tendency may have a value of 0 (fully off) to 100 (swap is constantly used).
First check the current tendency of your Ubuntu swap:
Applications> Accessories> Terminal window:
Tap (copy and paste):
Press Enter. Probably the tendency to swap 60, which is only for servers is a good value. For normal home use is far too high.
Reduce the swap tendency therefore as follows:
Applications> Accessories> Terminal Window
Copy and paste.
gksudo gedit /etc/sysctl.conf
Now start Gedit little notebook with a specific text file.
Add at the bottom of that text file, the following lines (copy and paste):
# Reduce the swap tendency
vm.swappiness = 10
Save the text file and exit Gedit little notebook.
Restart Your Computer: And now it's done at 10.
Home rule is a workable example Ram = 1 GB or more 10.
Less than 1 GB Ram = 1.
So I gave him 10 standing.
