2 January 2012Entry by

Tweaks posted here are for advanced users. Any beginners can give it a go, and if any problems occurs feel free to discuss it in the forums.

1. Enabling Hardware Accelerator which would speed up the hildon-desktop ( currently unstable and requires disabling if not working. Might need to reflash in case of reboot loop ).

First using XTerm, run this command

sudo gainroot

leafpad /etc/powervr.d/hildon-desktop.ini

Then change




 2) Installing Swappolube

sudo gainroot

apt-get install swappolube

Then use proposed values and click store

3) Install tracker-cfg to allow tracker using less CPU power

sudo gainroot

apt-get install tracker-cfg

Launch it and set to lowmemorymode

Any other tips and tricks are welcome. Just leave a comment and we will post it in our upcoming posts
