Here is a guide to install zRam-swap enabler on Ubuntu 12.04. I’ve been using this for some time but never mentioned it on n00bs on Ubuntu. I found the original article on web upd8. You can use zRam-swap enabler to speed up your system. You can install zRam-swap enabler by adding the Sergey “Shnatsel” Davidoff.



To add the PPA and install zRam-swap enabler open a terminal window (press Ctrl+Alt+T) and copy+paste the following command lines:
