Also, Ubuntu has experienced an internal error window keeps on popping up. On clicking show details, The executable path is
/usr/share/apport/apport-gpu-error-intel.py. There are also many other details.It's a pretty huge list!
Another window also appears: Apport has detected a possible GPU hang. Did your system recently lock up and/or require a hard reboot?
