Recently had a crash and did a clean install and backup restore. Ever since, I’ve had problems with sluggish desktop behavior. Examples:
- characters on screen are not keeping up with my typing
- Mouse is jerky and glitchy
- Discord voice, when running in another workspace, breaks up. In the primary workspace, voice is fine.
It isn’t hardware related, my workstation is pretty beefy. Any ideas on settings I can tweak?
was the behaviour occuring immediately after the install and before you restored?
Yes, I believe so. Also, I only restored my Documents folder and a few select other folders. Maybe I should have done a full restore, things were fine before.
OK, I think this issue is solved. I made a few changes and my desktop is now much snappier, as it should be.
Implemented the changes in this link: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1406263/ubuntu-22-04-runs-too-slow
Did some digging, found that my display driver was using the Xorg X server Nouveau driver. Switched to the nvidia-driver-515 (for my PNY Nvidia Quadro P2000 card).
Rebooted and things seem back to normal.
