I have installed Xubuntu on a penstick and have read many tweaks about performance and wanted to ask this forum for its opinion on how much should be added to RAM via /dev/shm and or tmpfs?

I own a crappy Dell Latitude. It has 256 MB RAM, 366mHz processor, and other really outdated components. How can I optimize Xubuntu for performance on it? Ever since I've upgraded to 11.10, it seems to be lagging more than before. How can I fix this? Is it some kind of minimal hardware requirement I'm not or barely
Have been running Ubuntu on my desktop since 9.something... now on 11.04, but have not done any updates for a LONG time... I saw Unity and decided I wanted no part of that! I have a laptop that I installed Xubuntu 12.04 on, and like the Xubuntu MUCH better than Ubuntu... So, decided that I would put Xubuntu on the desktop.
I just installed Xubuntu 14.04, on my brother's old laptop. I was trying to find some fonts like webdings, etc. Is there a way to add those fonts (the most important ones) to Xubuntu?
I tried a few commands I found on this forum, but it seems that they don't work.
I am a first time poster on this forum. I recently installed Xubuntu 13.10 on my Dell 8200 desktop. I was previously running Windows XP with no performance problems at all. I decided to wipe XP and do a clean Xubuntu install. Since then, I’ve had nothing but problems. It now runs way slower than XP. Youtube videos won’t even begin to play.
I've just downloaded Xubuntu OS which is a really nice system but the problem I'm having is that it is not being installed on the hard drive. When I installed Xubuntu, it asked me if I wanted to overwrite Windows 7, which I do, and so I selected that option. However, if I boot my computer without the usb attached, it loads up Windows 7 again.
