I have tried various options and now I am trying one more option. The option is to use the LXDE desktop. The LXDE desktop is a lightweight X Desktop. The look and feel are quite similar to the Gnome desktop with the added advantage of LXDE being very light.
It really light and low on CPU and memory usage so even if you have a High end Desktop but lot of applications running then really worth giving it a try and if you have a low end machine then definitely you should use LXDE.
