slow, often unresponsive acer aspire one running peppermint 5 (SOLVED)

There’s a thread on the Peppermint forum about swapping out the Ubuntu update-manager for Mints mintupdate in Peppermint 5
http://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,1104.msg10003.html#msg10003
pretty much exactly as we did in Peppermint 6
