Seems I have same issue and with help of your testing I found workaround. Make a script that switch to console before suspend and switch back after resume. In a terminal run sudoedit /etc/pm/sleep.d/fglrx-fix and paste in the following script. Afterwards make it executable by running sudo chmod u+x /etc/pm/sleep.d/fglrx-fix Script: #!/bin/bash #Script ...

If you don't use Chrome, ignore this answer. If you use Chrome, the problem doesn't come frome Flash "as it" but the PPAPI library used by Chrome and Adobe, developping together PepperFlash (/opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so). You can desactivate it, so Chrome will use the NPAPI, like other navigators (you must have flashplugin : sudo ...

To debug more, I advise to change the boot options so that the boot is more verbose. If you edit (as root, with gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub) you can see a line somewhere with is similar to: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" remove "quiet" (or the two of them to have an old-style, no graphic, verbose boot) and save. Then you have to run sudo ...

It sounds like issues with your graphics driver. Is this happening right after the install or after you install a proprietary driver? I had this issue after installing a prop. driver and switching my monitor from the integrated graphics port my gpu. I know if you have an ATI driver, you are going to have to use the integrated graphics to install Ubuntu, and ...

You may be able to access the command line only interface by pressing Ctrl + Alt + F1 and then typing your short username (it has no spaces, is all lowercase) and password to login. Then you have a full screen terminal that is not dependent on the GUI. You may be able to restart the graphical interface by pressing Alt + Sysrq + R and then Alt + Sysrq + K. ...

You can access the terminal with Ctrl + Alt + F1 through F12. This is called a "tty" terminal. "tty" stands for "teletype". The keyboard shortcut will not get you to a terminal, but to a login prompt. Once you log in with your normal user name and password (which will not appear), you will then be taken to a bash prompt.

Best way to force a reboot/system halt is to ctrl + alt +F(1-6) and then give the three finger salute to reboot, or login to tty, and issue a sudo shutdown -n Note: The three finger salute refers to a ctrl + alt + del As to fixing your problem, what wm do you use, video hardware (Nvidia Or ATI) Some wm dont like certain drivers, but its been sometime since ...

I had the same problem on one of my upgrades today. It's because the login manager isn't starting. I'm using xubuntu with lightdm. I couldn't figure out how to fix it so I ended up SSH into the box from another, but you could probably press Ctrl+Alt+F1 to get into tty1 CLI Mode. Then I ran this: sudo apt-get install --reinstall xubuntu-desktop I'm ...

Disabling the screen saver other power management features (turn off screen, sleep/suspend, etc.) is the only thing I have found that works. Not really a fix but it will keep the guest OS from locking up.

xkill is not a good tool for this job. What xkill does is kill the connection Nautilus has to the X server. It's true that this will usually end the process, but you don't always want to count on that. You can open the System Monitor and end the process or just open a terminal and type in killall nautilus

I am not sure if this is possible fix for all the versions, but I was facing same issue. I had used deb file from skype website. That always kept crashing. So I uninstalled it and installed skype from Canonical Partner repo. Its been stable ever since.

Applications freezing and no Launcher could both be caused by trying to install Ubuntu on a computer that does not meet the minimal system requirements for it. Ubuntu publishes Release Notes for each official Ubuntu derivative that it releases, which can be easily found by searching for something like "Ubuntu 13.10 release notes" for your particular version. ...

Jan's answer worked perfect for me, but the issue would still happen on hibernate. To fix this, I modified a tiny bit of the script: #!/bin/bash #Script kills autofs when going into standby to eliminate issues with it case $1 in suspend|hibernate) # instead of just "suspend" #suspending to RAM chvt 1 echo "Going to sleep" sleep 1 ;; ...

My initial thought would probably be that either the ISO you burned wasn't good, or that a step is missing. I'll wait for someone else to step in and give you a more detailed answer, but I'll give you a tip or two. Open terminal and type sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade You can also type them separately (line before &&) and ...

Try to lower the amount of maximum connected peers and try again. Otherwise maybe it is a bug. This needs further discussion with the developers and I will suggest to open a bug report. See here how to report bugs

To overcome this problem, you don't necessarily need to restart lightdm. Just press ctrl + alt + F1 to go into terminal mode then, ctrl + alt + F7 to go back to regular desktop. I have the same issue with Nvidia GeForce GT 755M.

Here's a link to an Ubuntu help page that should guide you through installing the proprietary drivers for your particular graphics card. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/Nvidia If the graphical user interface is really just totally un-useable, press CTRL+ALT+F1. That should put you in a terminal. If at any time you want to get back out ...

I looked and found the exact BIOS your system uses, from what I can tell they do not have an option to boot from USB (even though that HP employee said they do). You could get another tool, download it, boot it from a different disk, which allows you to boot to USB, but I would like to find a simpler solution. I am guessing you are probably more ...

You will probably have set some incompatible setting combination(s). Gnome Tweak Tool can be used on Ubuntu, but is not exclusively for Ubuntu + Unity. That is why there is no "set to default" option, like you would expect from an application, dedicated to Ubuntu only. Removing the application would not undo the setting changes you made with it. Since you ...

Upon further investigation I was able to trace it down to libticalcs2-11 which was unable to update because of a unmet dependency, which made the whole upgrade process to stop, which made the system reboot with half of the new packages installed and the rest of the old ones, causing the driver issues. After removing the library and running a apt-get -f ...

Do a Memory Test & make sure your RAM's are working fine. So, I had similar issues with a heavy config like this.

The issues I had ranged from - chrome keeps ...
