When using awesome (in vanilla form) in a VM, it is much smoother in ArchLabs than in other distros. I have tried EndeavourOS (another distro that is also close to pure Arch) and Xubuntu and for some reason in those distros when typing in the terminal (it doesn’t matter which terminal I use) there is a bit of an input lag, however on ArchLabs there is no input lag and it is very smooth. All these tested distributions had the exact same settings and they all had VirtualBox tools installed.
I have tried using different terminals (on ArchLabs) and even different shells, they all perform very smoothly. Does ArchLabs install some package or something which increases its performance or something?
