I have Ubuntu 12.04 installed, running Gnome 3, and yesterday I installed Pepper Flash. Ever since Chrome has been locking up on different webpages. At first it was strictly Youtube but now it seems to be others sites also. Anything with any type of flash or heavy scripting.
I would be comfortable with Chromium crashing and simply reloading it. But when it crashes, it locks up my whole session and even after entering the terminal (CtrlAltF1), and killing all the Chromium processes it still shows a frozen screen with Chromium up. I can see my mouse pointer move up on the top menu bar, but the Gnome interface is unresponsive as well.
I am a total newbie to troubleshooting Linux. What else can I do to get my session back without rebooting my box?
Also where can I check the logs to see if Pepper Flash is my issue?
