Ubuntu :: Java Games Running Slow?

Jun 13, 2011

I'm having some trouble with Java based games. I am running 11.04 64x and I downloaded and installed the latest sun-jvm. I know my hardware can run these two games very well (Minecraft and Spiral Knights). I'm wondering if maybe sun isn't my default plugin.

Debian Configuration :: System Running Is Very Slow

Oct 28, 2010

I'm running testing and over the last week or two my system is getting slow. Any disk access slows everything to a crawl. Even the cli can take several seconds to display characters as I type them.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Desktop Edition - System Running Incredibly Slow

Jun 18, 2011

I have just installed 11.04 desktop edition on a freshly built machine with a 3GHz processor and 8GB ram. It has 8GB swap space and a 250GB partition which runs along side a 750GB Windows partition. The problem is it is running incredibly slowly. The interface freezes up every few minutes and stuff takes ages to load. I have run Ubuntu on computers with less than a 1GHz processor before and it has been fine. Should I just reinstall?

Debian :: New Install Running Slow - System Freezes Every 30 Seconds Or So

Sep 26, 2015

So i just finally installed Debian Jessie OS, replacing Ubuntu. But now it is running extremely slow. It's not internet connection. The internet speed is running fine (Videos load quickly), but it's like the system freezes every 30 seconds or so. A video can be fully loaded but still stops and starts constantly. Just browsing the internet, or non-internet things do the same also. I switched back to Ubuntu to see if it was different on there, but Ubuntu is running fine.

Ubuntu :: 9.10 Video Driver - Games Very Slow

Feb 14, 2010

I'm having some problems with my video drivers I think. Before I get into detail here's some info about my laptop:
It's a Laptop, yes.
Graphics Card = ATI Mobility Radeon X2300
Model: ASUS F3KE (the 1 without the Camera, just a mic)
Ubuntu Version: 9.10

I believe the problem is with my Video Driver. I can Set Visual effects on high without any trouble, but when running games (Even Java Games) that I can run flawlessly when running under Vista are almost impossible to run on Ubuntu, extremely low FPS and well it's just pointless to even try!

Examples of games are:
Guild Wars running (Well not really *running*) with wine.
Saga with wine
Wurm Online (Java)
Alien Arena
And even Glest!

Debian Hardware :: Glxgears Showing 900 FPS But 3d Games Very Slow?

Aug 13, 2011

I just installed Debian Squeeze a couple days ago and haven't had any problems so far except trying to get 3D acceleration to work with my Radeon 5770 card. When running glxgears, I get over 900 FPS and the gears are spinning great. When I try to run a 3D game like OpenArena, ScorchedEarth, or FlightGear, they are all so slow as to be unplayable. (extremely slow)

I've been trying to get this working for a while and had no luck.As per internet advice, I installed firmware-linux-free and firmware-linux-nonfree.

In glxinfo, it says "direct rendering: yes"

In my /var/log/Xorg.0.log file it says:

(WW) RADEON(0): Direct rendering disabled
(II) RADEON(0): Acceleration disabled
(WW) Falling back to old probe method for vesa
(WW) Falling back to old probe method for fbdev

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 3D Vides / Sis_drv.o-402 - Games Runs Really Slow

Apr 26, 2010

I have a laptop with a sis 650 video card. It works just fine except in video games like assault cube where it runs really slow. Now that could be because I have less than a gig of memory, but more likely it seems lack of 3D support. I found the sis_drv.o-402 file on the sis site, which seems to be a kernel module. This info came from an article that is a couple of years old. It, and other references speak of using "insmod sis_drv.o-402". I can not find such a command, nor can I find reference to it in the opensuse site. I also can not seem to find which driver I am currently using, and if it has 3D support.

General :: How To Disable Other Monitors While Running Games In Wine

Feb 24, 2011

My current setup is:
* Dual GTS 250 video cards
* 3 Monitors
* Used nvidia-settings to run each monitor as a separate x session
* This is all running on Linux Mint Debian Edition

When running games (Starcraft II) in Wine via PlayOnLinux, I've found that the mouse does not get locked. I already tried various solutions littered across the web and none work so I'd rather just disable my other two monitors while playing. Does anyone know of a method where I can turn off my other two monitors (not my primary monitor) while running Wine and then turn then back on afterwards? I don't mind having to manually run a script before and after gaming.

This is the output of my xrandr for each of my monitors (I get a different xrandr depending on which X session (i.e. monitor) I try xrandr on):
Primary Monitor
xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 175, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 1920 x 1080
default connected 1920x1080+0+0 0mm x 0mm .....

Second Monitor
xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
Screen 1: minimum 320 x 240, current 1280 x 1024, maximum 1280 x 1024
default connected 1280x1024+0+0 0mm x 0mm .....

Third Monitor
xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
Screen 2: minimum 320 x 175, current 1280 x 1024, maximum 1280 x 1024
default connected 1280x1024+0+0 0mm x 0mm .....

I could not figure out from the above outputs what I should be using for the --output flag. I assumed it was default and tried the following:
~ $ xrandr --output default --off
xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
But as you can see, it didn't work. Additionally, since all three xrandr outputs list the monitor as default, I wouldn't know how to turn my other monitors back on afterwards (if the command did work). Do you know what might be wrong in my nvidia-settings or what else I could try?

Ubuntu :: USB Disk - Slow Transfer Speeds And Slow System?

Apr 17, 2011

Whenever I transfer a movie into my 16GB USB flash disk, my whole system becomes windows-like and unusable!

When i drag the file(s) into the USB disk folder, it starts out fine and pretty darn fast (25mb/sec) then slowly decreases until it's unbearably slow (3m/sec) and as a side effect my whole system starts deteriorating. I basically have to wait for the file to finish transferring before i can use my desktop again!

This has been happening with every version since Karmic (all 64bit)- I put up with it because I don't use the USB stick that much.. but lately it's been my go to source for transfering large files to/from work.

Ubuntu Installation :: System Freezes After A While In Games

May 9, 2010

I had Ubuntu 9.10 .. upgraded to 10.04 LTS... i dunno if its the ati driver or what but when im on wine the games runs fine for a couple of minutes.. 5 to 10 maybe and then the whole system freezes.. cant close cant do anything... the mouse moves though .. and the sound keeps looping, thats if i use OGG on wine insted of ALSA... This looks like it should be on the wine segment but i dont think so... I mentioned wine cuz ATM wine is all i got on this pc as for games.... im downloading urban terror to see if it freezes too...

I remember that right after i finished installing ubuntu 9.10 i upgraded it right away to 10.04 without having the ati drivers installed, after the installation finished... the boot up logo from ubuntu with purple background was at its normal size as usual... But once i installed the drivers.. the ubuntu boot up logo or whatever its called went all BIG like if it was using another resolution, though once it finishes loading, the resolution goes back to normal when in login screen and desktop.

HOw do i remove the drivers completely? do i have to restart after removing them so i can install new drivers? should i use propietary drivers from amd site or the one found by system--- hardware drivers??? why cant i find envy at synaptics?

Ubuntu :: Great Games For Best Operating System Ever

Dec 2, 2010

I am not a programmer or a game developer. I would even use the term "computer geek" very loosely cause any problems I have I google and usually find the solution here. That being said I am not sure the proper location for this discussion and I am not an expert on the subject but I ran across an article by a game developer who ported to Linux and commented as to why more developers don't. [URL]. Before all sorts of flaming responses get written i would like to say that Linux
(A) does need more games
(B) developers obviously have a reason for not porting
(C) If you ever want that to happen we need to turn reasons against into reasons for.

I know I am not a programmer and don't know a whole lot about Linux but I read programmer's talking about problems with too many distro's and too many different window systems etc., a lot. would it be possible to create a front-end that would act like a router for games, like the game puts out audio and the front end sends it to alsa it puts out video and the front end sends it to the nvidia driver. something where how it talks to gnome or kde or any other window manager and any other distro is different but how it talks to the game is always the same. If the answer to what I have said is no how could this problem be solved how could a developer create software that could be installed no problems on various platforms without them creating 100's of different versions of the game. One package one installer no mess. Linux is so incredibly stable there must be a way for it to be easier to write a game for Linux then for windows.

Software :: Flash Games Run Fine On First Play But Slow Down With Repeated Play

May 1, 2011

I've had this problem on a few flash games (a couple of EA's sports management games on Facebook, and the Pokemon Dream World.) When I first use them everything's fine, but as I continue coming back to them, they seem to run a little slower each time. Ultimately in the case of the former two it got so bad that they were unusual.

Why is this happening? If they were slow from the start I could understood, but what could be making them go wrong on repeated plays?

I'm on 32 bit Kubuntu Lucid, firefox is my browser, and it's the official flash plugin.

General :: Video Driver - Some Video Games Are Unusually Slow

Feb 13, 2011

I installed Debian recently, and everything seems to be working fine, except some video games are unusually slow compared to what they would normally be. Tremulous, for example, worked reasonably fine on this computer with Windows XP, but now (Debian) for some reason it's laggy even on the title screen.
Something wrong with my video drivers?

All of the information I know:
The computer is a Dell Dimension 3000
RAM: 256mb? Gnome System Monitor says 247.1mb, SWAP: about 730mb
Processor: Intel Celeron 2.40GHz
HD: 25gb out of a 40gb HD free, and an external 1tb HD with about 920gb free
Debian Release 6.0 (squeeze)
Kernel Linux 2.6.32-5-686
GNOME 2.30.2 (I've tried LXDE also, no noticeable change)
Only linux on the machine.

glxinfo told me this:


64 GLX Visuals

128 GLXFBConfigs:

lspci told me this:

Debian Hardware :: ALSA Sound Not Persistent In Games Or System

Jul 26, 2011

I recently changed from Gentoo to Debian Squeeze. All went fine but I have an ALSA issue. I have an AMD Athlon II X4 board with a Nvidia (Realtek) sound chip. After installing I got a lot of "no such device" errors, so I installed the Realtek driver the Debian way and the errors vanished. I could successful run alsactl init and alsamixer.

At this point there is no sound neither in games nor system. alsaplay says (on the screen) that it is playing a wav file but there is no sound. My test ''dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/dsp'' complains "/dev/dsp : no such file or directory". Well, all clear. modprobing the snd-*-oss modules brings sound alive but I have to do this after every restart. I have no clue how to make this persistent the Debian way.

Ubuntu :: Compiz Annotate Tool Lags Badly During Screencast

May 28, 2011

I use an online screencasting java applet called screencast-o-matic to record my screen. While recording, I use Compiz's annotation tool. Normally this tool works great, but for some reason while I'm recording, it gets very laggy (drawing is way behind the mouse movements) and less smooth. For example, drawing a circle at a quicker pace not only causes lag, but also makes the circle look more like a polygon with straight lines. While this is happening, my CPU also spikes, with large strains showing up on the java process. I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 with an intel i7 processor. Any ideas as to why annotation lags badly while screencasting, and any ways to fix it,

Ubuntu :: HD Video Stutters Very Badly On A Fresh Install Of 10.04 LTS On Laptop

I have a dell inspiron 1720 with 4gb ram, dualcore 2,5ghz and a gforce 8600m card so it shouldnt have problem with playback.I have installed restricted extra package and activated the nvidia driver from the additional driver menu. I have tried using both firefox and chrome for hd ..... content and both media player and vlc for 720p files on my harddrive. All of the above perform horribly (~1 fps). Low definition videos plays smoothly though.

Ubuntu :: 9.10 Running Slow / Speed It Up?

Feb 25, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 9.10, replacing Windows 7.

its running a little slower than I hoped it would, loading movies takes a while, and when i switch to full screen, it takes about 5 seconds to catch up.

im suspicious that my video card driver might not be configured correctly. can anyone tell me what I might need to configure to get things running smoother?

other things on the computer are also running slow, like opening Firefox, it takes a while for the window to appear.

- Athlon 64 x2 5200+
- Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2h motherboard
- Radeon HD 3650 512mb pci-e
- 4gb DDR2 800

and I do have ATI catalyst installed

Ubuntu :: Running A Little Slow - Jerky Even ?

Apr 24, 2010

I'm running 9.1 Karmic Koala UNR and recently (over the last week or two) the system has been running somewhat slowly. The boot is still lightning fast, but opening up programs takes a second or two, it can sometimes take a second or two for menu's to respond to mouse overs.

I've noticed the problems in applications as well. Streaming media over firefox (and I have a 40GB landline, I don't do lag) appears jerky as if skipping a frame or two while sound carries on almost as normal.

Netbeans (I have crash issues at the moment) also runs slowly, alt-tab takes a few seconds longer than every other program.

General Windows are just slow to load (one to three seconds) and menu's take a while to appear (2-3 seconds on mouseover or click)

Usually Ubuntu is lightning fast, I by no means have top of the range laptop...sacrifices have to be made... it's a simple Acer notebook.

Ubuntu :: Running Off A USB Stick; Very Slow?

May 28, 2010

Now that I'm on Ubuntu, I love the look of it. Navigating the OS menus is fast and programs are generally fast once they're running, but they're extremely slow when first opened (basic programs like Firefox, OpenOffice Writer, etc.). Is this because I'm running Ubuntu off of a USB stick? I don't know if I'd make the full switch if programs typically open this slow, but otherwise I love Ubuntu.
