1.  Slowness with Compiz

I've found that using the Compiz Config Settings Manager (ccsm) to enable the "Copy To Texture" plugin can make a huge difference. If you are typing ahead of the display and using compiz, then try changing the status of this plugin.

2.  Increase performance when scrolling

\force_paint_single_char false

to your preferences file. The file is be default located in


This may help. Further, scrolling using the mouse wheel rather than arrow keys results in a smoother scrolling experience.
