Its a proven fact that, MATE version of Linux-Mint performs better than the CINNAMON version. If your computer is having issues with GNOME 3 based CINNAMON, then I personally recommend you to use MATE desktop inbterface (GNOME 2).
Open your terminal : Ctrl + Alt + T
Type: sudo apt-get install mint-meta-mate
Type your PASSWORD
You are done. Now exit the terminal.
Click MENU, then LOG-OUT (or press Super-Key / Windows-Key, then Log-Out)
Now aside of your login name, there will be an icon encircled.
Click on that. Now choose MATE..
Benefits of MATE:
- Load faster
- Better performance
- Works best in Low-end computers.
