I have ubuntu 11.10. I installed pcsx yesterday and that application exits on its own for a random time interval. Its not giving me any error or notification. So what may be the cause of it exiting on its own?

Probably a crash. If it's always the same application, you should run it from the terminal and see if error messages are printed during the crash.

Open a terminal by pressing ctrl+alt+t or typing terminal in the dash.
