Hi,

I installed both KDE and Gnome and was surprised that KDE performs better.

Gnome is just too slow. Is anyone successfully runnig Gnome? What tweaks could be applied?

Thank you.
Meanwhile i did a full install of kde.

- apt-get install kdebase
- edit .xinitrc to "exec startkde"
- edit kdmrd to login as root "AllowRootLogin=true"

Despite that some features are not working- how about performance ?
Can we make assumptions on that based on eg. boot times ?

The performance was o.k. (for a 400mhz processsor). Slow but acceptable.

Sound-output was extremely delaying and the touchscreen seemed unusable. Instead, i used a usb-mouse.
If sound-output and the touchscreen-issues can be fixed - kde will be a comfortable, attractive desktop-enviroment.

I use E17 atm, but found the Gnome too be very usable.
