Gnome acting so slow

I just installed manjaro gnome hoping it’s gonna be fast since my laptop was just a little slow on windows , and now after installation it’s even slower than windows and there is absolutaly nothing running in the background , the moment it was installed it just didn’t do well , Also my HDD is getting really hot and thrashing , i’m suspecting the problem is with the hard drive

you have a nvidia video card?
go into tweaks & turn off animations.

Welcome to the forum! :wave:

Please post your system info as outlined here:

No , i don’t , i have intel hd 520

intel should run great, what exactly seems slow?

Have you installed any KDE apps? I always install certain KDE apps (Gwenview, Digikam, KDEnlive, Spectacle) whether I’m using KDE, Gnome, or Cinnamon.

I don’t know if all KDE apps do this, but some install Baloo and it slows the computer to a crawl, creates huge HDD activity, etc. Basically the machine is unusable.

Once I disable Baloo the machine becomes fast and responsive.

App take too long to open , right now i’m using firefox and it’s super slow i have to wait 5 seconds to do something
check this when i run free -h
..... total used free shared buff/cache available
Mem: 3.7Gi 1.3Gi 200Mi 406Mi 2.2Gi 1.8Gi
Swap: 0B 0B 0B

The moment i started using manjaro it was slow i didn’t do anything

When you wish help you need to provide essential basics of your system as requested by @Yochanan. :wink:
