Chrome email (Gmail) does not perform well under Linux Mint & using Asus Netbook.
Posted on 2010-08-15
I run Linux Mint ver. 9 & latest (beta is only available) version of Chrome & the Gmail
on an Asus netbook model Eee PC 1005HA.
1.when I type I always find that the cursor jumps most anywhere to above typed
areas. Thus, I have to constantly look to see that a mess has developed & then correct
2. this error does NOT occur using my desktop with same Programs (Mint & Gmail).
So I conclude that the netbook is under powered (Intel Atom N270 1.6GB CPU 667FSB with 2 GB DDR2-533 RAM) & is the cause of this Gmail corrupted email composition.
I do not type fast (maybe only 30 words per min.).
I like Gmail & prefer it as default on the netbook, but will now use T-Bird on it until I can correct the
