Ubuntu 14.04 slow graphics

Postby FranBlakes » Sun Apr 20, 2014 9:07 am

Machine:

Dell Laptop: Inspiron 510m, Pentium M 1.70GHz, 1280MB Memory (@ 333MHz), Intel 855GM/855GME graphics.

Was running Ubuntu 10.04, all Compiz animations worked flawless, the Chromium BSU played at 40-50FPS.

Fresh install to 14.04 - had to use "forcepae" to install.
Animation are so slow, Chromium BSU plays <5FPS

I will be using the "flashback" environment, but I want wobbly windows!
Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS!

When 10.04 was installed, an edit to GRUB had to be made and this: http://islandlinux.org/howto/update-int ... ion-ubuntu had to be installed.

But ^ doesn't work with 14.04 :-/

I've tried: Flashback (Compiz) and Flashback (Metacity)

Playing Chromium BSU is S-L-O-W :-(

Synaptic shows: xserver-org-video-intel is installed (supports i855 chips) so why is compiz so slow?

Tried Lubuntu and Xubuntu those these are for low-spec machines, still had to use "forcepae"?!
Both distros had problems with graphics

Tried Ubuntu 12.04, though "forcepae" doesn't work...

Downloaded the mini.iso from http://www.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/di ... t/non-pae/ using "i915.modeset=1" to get install going. Nothing happens after setting the archive to : gb.archive.ubuntu.com

Have I got to install Ubuntu 10.04 LTS then do an upgrade to 12.04 LTS?
