Ubuntu takes very long to change users.

Asked by iang on 2011-03-02

First one type window appears for signing on, like my old 8.04 used to look like (but is definitely deleted), but only for a second, then the screen goes black for a few more seconds, then a new window appears, with which I can change users. And the more often I change, the worse the screen gets. I believe my computer only has an onboard graphic chip. I am using 10.10. Any ideas?

Because of several different problems with 10.10 I gave up and installed 10.04. Now everything is fine. I had the idea that maybe when I changed users (to root), I should have tried signing off and signing on instead. I also couldn't shut off the computer. I think this bug has been handled elsewhere.
Well, keep up the great work!
