I am running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS on a Dell Precision M6300 with 4GB of memory. Ubuntu is very fast and normally applications run very well. I have been using Ubuntu for over a year now and can’t imagine going back to Windows. However, I am running Ignition Vision Designer and it is very slow. I notice the slow performance editing in a window:
- Selecting controls on a window. I click on a control and it takes almost 1 to 2 seconds to highlight the control.
- Moving controls around on a window
- Startup - When I launch the Designer it comes up quickly with the project selection, but once I select the project nothing happens for a long time. After probably 10-15 seconds the Designer appears.
- Copy and Paste
- Editing SQLtags
Otherwise, all other operations like saving down to the Gateway, making backups, preview mode, etc seem to have the normal performance that I am used to with Windows7.
Is there something that I can adjust in Ubuntu or Java to improve the workability of the Vision Designer? I don’t want to go to Windows7 , but the Vision Designer is much more responsive in Windows7.
I have Java 1.6.18 installed.
I am using Ignition 1.7.6, Vision Module 4.1.6
JVM Memory (used/max MB): 79.9 / 493.1
This could merely be a configuration issue in my OS so I don’t expect silver bullet to solve the issue. If you have used Designer on Ubuntu and have any advice I would appreciate it.
