        In the past on this notebook I ran Unity without problems and lately Plasma. With Gnome shell I noticed pointer stutters when I opened the shell and the animations were jerky.
        My notebook is an acer aspire E1-522, the processor is perhaps the culprit, AMD quad core E2 3800 (1.30GHz), Amd Radeon HD 8280 graphics, 8Gb ram, 120Gb SSD.
        However I will try to redo the installation, because this situation seems strange to me. I know very well that Gnome shell is quite resource-consuming, but I thought it worked better.
        I have much faster and more recent hardware and gnome is still an ugly stuttery mess, so its not an issue with your notebook.

          Isedonde There’s ~100 unmerged MRs on mutter and shell. Many MRs come from new developers. CI makes it a bit easier but things have to be up to standard. Remember GNOME is the enterprise desktop

          Increasing the general review bandwidth could be a problem. Hackfests is a more likely approach.

                what you know does not matter. It's what you try that matters.

                  A javascript hack to get basic desktop functionality. This does not even work out of the box without extra commands in the terminal. I thought Gnome is supposed to be user friendly?

                    You aren't required to agree with what is considered a standard. This is exactly the reason why so many people try making "the new standard". Nothing is the standard if everyone is making their own. A standard isn't required to be good.

                    Like it or not, GNOME is deemed the Linux standard desktop environment. Besides, if it isn't, what is? It can't be KDE, primarily because its priorities tend to revolve around principles rather than needs (it also just tends to be treated as a 2nd class citizen). Many DEs are either directly dependent upon or forked from GNOME. Seems a bit weird for a standard to rely on someone else's code, wouldn't you say? Everything else is either woefully incomplete, buggy, unpopular, or under-supported to be deemed a standard.

                    Keep in mind, I regularly use 4 different DEs, none of which are GNOME. So I'm not biased here when I say GNOME is the best choice to be the Linux standard, even if it isn't the best DE.

                      The mouse cursor stuttering happens on Wayland every time gnome-shell does heavy computation, IO, or blocks for other reasons. Basically, the same thing that renders the UI, displays animations and manages window compositing also has to draw the mouse cursor (or at least update the position). If something deep down in gnome-shell takes more time than your monitor refresh interval (often ~16ms), the cursor stutters.

                      This is not an issue when choosing the X.org session at the login screen.

                      Daniel van Vugt wants to find all the cases where a frame takes >16ms to render, but that will probably take some time. Right now, he's trying to get a patch merged that will speed up rendering while hovering the pointer over the calendar and maybe other situations: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/mutte...e_requests/983 , but the patch is stuck since 1 month because discussion about the possibility of fixing this in a library instead of mutter has stalled.
