[lubuntu-users] Activating a swap partition

On behalf of the Computer Wombling Project I am refurbishing a donated
Toshiba NB250-107 netbook. It has a 64-bit CPU and 1GiB RAM. Because of
that I installed 32-bit Lubuntu 18.04.1. Whenever I try to open a (small)
document with LibreOffice Writer, the hard drive whirs a bit, some of the
LibreOffice window appears... and then LibreOffice closes.

I think it is running out of memory. I've put a 2GiB partition on the hard
drive but that does not seem to be used. Here is the output of the swapon
--summary command:-

Filename                Type        Size    Used    Priority
/dev/sda1                                  partition    1998844    0    -2

Thanks :)
