    I’m using a fully up to date Fedora 23 with Gnome Shell on both my workstation at work and my laptop at home.  I am demoing the Linux Workstation edition 5.1.7 of NoMachine.  I did not see this behavior previously using the same configuration in Fedora 22.  I have also forced GDM to start using xorg and use xorg when logging into Gnome.  Any ideas, hints, tips?



    I assume you have been using Gnome 3 in Fedora 22 like you are doing in Fedora 23. Is it correct?

    Depending on kind of session (physical or virtual display) things can change, so please let me know which is your case.

    I would check these things:

    • Run “top” and check CPU usage of nx* processes along with Xorg and Gnome.
    • Check the OpenGL renderer in use: in the remote session run “glxinfo | grep -i renderer”. Possible outcomes are “Software Rasterizer” and “llvmpipe”: the latter usually has better performance.



    Yes, Gnome 3 in F22 as well.

    These are both physical installations.

    The following information is for the “server” side, my workstation at work:

    Thank you so much for your reply.



    Could you tell me if you get this sluggish behavior when

    • you chose “Create a new virtual desktop”
    • you connected to share the physical display

    Did you look at CPU usage?
