New to Manjaro, so far I am very impressed, but looking to get more out of my (aging) laptop.
- ASUS N56V
- 8Gb Ram
- Quad core i7-3630QM 2.4Ghz
- Nvidia Geforce GT650M 4gb
Linux experience - I dual booted Win8/10 with Ubuntu for years, but never really used Ubuntu at all really. I installed Manjaro KDE Plasma 5.19.5 a few days ago using the clean (erase) install option, so I am not running the Win10 OS anymore. So let’s work through this as I know nothing about Linux.
Clean install ran smoothly enough.
The boot time seems very slow, even for my laptop? It seems to take about:
- 1 minute to log in screen
- Another minute until I am on the desktop and able to click through to Firefox, etc.
Once the computer is running, even just clicking to open folders, the terminal, or browsing Firefox it just seems sluggish, even compared to Win10 that I uninstalled recently.
I’m very open and enthusiastic at the idea of playing around and seeing what’s wrong and investigating so if there’s any step by step/wiki/guide or any information you may have I can use to try to see what is the matter would be great.
