4 Tricks to Speed Up Ubuntu

This week I'm showing you some tried and true ways to get the most performance out of your Ubuntu box. Add me: || http://bit.ly/nixgoogleplus Code used in Video (in order of appearance) * Show Hidden Startup Apps: sudo sed -i "s/NoDisplay=true/NoDisplay=false/g" /etc/xdg/autostart/*.desktop * Install Preload from Software Center * Change Swappiness Value 1. Run terminal 2. Enter following line to see current swappiness value cat /proc/sys/vm/swappiness (default value in Ubuntu for swappiness is 60) 3. Open file /etc/sysctl.conf in a text editor, I did gedit /etc/sysctl.conf 4. nter the following parameter # Decrease swappiness value vm.swappiness=10 5. Save the file and restart the computer Fight for the users in our Discord: https://discordapp.com/invite/CKYwgxA


  1. Thanks for Preload!
  2. step one: get real distro
    step.. i'm way too late for this.. hug this
  3. Ubuntu have a lot of usefull applications, that's why I doesn't like Unity, I prefer Budgie, KDE or XCFE
  4. So what do I do if my Terminal doesn't recognize gedit?
  5. (Short) Run Teminal -> sudo bash -c "echo 'vm.swappiness = 10' >> /etc/sysctl.conf"
  6. Ubuntu is slow?
    But ubuntu is lightning fast in my PC
  7. Forget about the Linux... that voice sounds so good
  8. preload software doesnt show in my ubuntu
  9. I think the best way is when your voice talks to me every night before I sleep.
  10. @Nixie Pixel , You Make A Awesome Video 6 Year Ago !!!!
  11. Hey.. iam. Nani I have problem
  12. Pro-tip: install arch
  13. A woman talking about tech? Suscribed and thumbs up. OH YEAH!
  14. hi nixie pixel, im just going to tell you that i think it's best to have linux so you can learn programming with linux, so for the people who want to learn about programming, they should switch over to linux ;)
  15. hi nixie i'm using ubuntu 18.04 my / root partiition is full how to extend that partition using gparted??
  16. Question!
    If I have an SSD and only 3Gb of RAM, wouldn't be better if my swappiness is highter? but if I change my swappiness do I have to partition my disk? (I have backups with clonezilla, so Im terrified that I might not be able to recover, because the partitions wouln't be the same)
