Hello everyone! I’ve recently installed Antergos and I love it so far! The only problem that I have though is that gnome shell is very slow.

Gnome shell’s animations are very slow. Example is when opening the applications drawer, the icons move to their proper locations very slowly. The animation that plays moves at 15FPS or so.

Oddly enough gnome shell is fast on the Fedora 25 distribution.

Attempted solutions

  • Impatience does not improve anything
  • Turning off animations still makes gnome slow

System Specs are definitely good enough to run the animations smoothly.
