Karmic Koala 9.10 and Tweak

Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala has been out . Unfortunately karmic need higher requirement, so it could decrease my netbook performan. My laptop specification's are
– Intel Dual Core 1,8 GHz
– 1 GB RAM
– Intel GMA 965
– Hardisk 200 GB

I think my Laptop work slowly. This happen since ubuntu 8.04 - 9.10 . I find out how to tweak but most of them it is only half success. I got ide and try it out, the result so far is good. it only load 30%.

Here is the tips n trick :
1. CPU Frequency Scaling Monitor. Set it to be PowerSave
this will force laptop to work on the minimum speed which could allow. On my case it work on 800 MHz.

2. Set up Session startup
Menu > System > Preferences > Startup Application
There is a lot daemon services which startup when boot @ first time. I think shutdown a few services will be good think . On My case, i've shutdown
— Bluetooth Manager
— Check For new hardware drivers
— Evolution Alarm Notifier (Evolution Mail)
— Gnome Do ( jika sebelumnya install gnome do )
— Gwibber ( Microblogging Client for Gnome )
— Print Queue Applet
— Remote Desktop
— Screensaver
— update notifier
— Visual Assistance
— ( Maybe there are another services again? )

3. The most application which need much resources is FIREFOX
Firefox Themes could affect to laptop performance's . For that, change your themes which more simply and light. On my case i used Foxdie Blue Theme

4. Lighweight Multimedia Player Menggunakan multimedia player
I've change my mind go to other heart...hehehe...i mean choose Audacious which need less resources than rythmbox.

5. shutdown Compiz(Desktop Effect)
Menu > System > Preferences > Appearance > Visual Effects > None

Now, I thing your laptop will be more faster than before after restart your system

Well , Im not Angel either demon just human . Maybe there is other tips n trick ? Thanx for advices
