Ubuntu: How to install zram on Ubuntu 13.04?


I tried to install zRam using the following commands in the terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:shnatsel/zram  sudo apt-get update  sudo apt-get install zramswap-enabler  

But it throws the following error message which says that the package is not available:

E: Couldn't find package zramswap-enabler  

I tried to download and install the zramswap-enabler_0.2.1-0~12~oneiric1_all.deb package, but after the second reboot it stops working.


To install zRAM, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:

sudo apt-get install zram-config  

Once the installation is done go ahead and reboot your machine.

To check whether it works:

cat /proc/swaps  


zramswap-enabler hasn't been released for 13.04 yet. Unless you can make an updated version yourself, you'll have to wait for Shnatsel to release one (this is according to https://launchpad.net/~shnatsel/+archive/zram, which only lists packages up to Quantal).
