Your machine has 4 GiB of RAM, some of which is used by your onboard GPU, you have no swap, and you’re running GNOME as your desktop environment.

Create swap and/or add more RAM, and/or switch to a lightweight desktop environment like LXQt or OpenBox. Your current setup is never going to be able to give you a satisfactory user experience.


but i used to run gnome smoothly with 4 gb of ram and 4 gb of swap. from htop, i can now see the os gives pressure to much to processor unit.
or should i run kde plasma?

But you don’t have any swap now. That’s why it’s stuttering.

It would only be mildly better if you don’t have any swap. The limited amount of available virtual memory is your bottleneck.

You should at the very least create a swap device, whether it be a swap partition or a swap file.


I’ve created 4 gb swap file. Now my pc is running smooth like before. Thank you for your help!!
