For all of you. I've finally achived solve the problem... basically removing Chromium and moving to Chrome. I copied the default and EVWhitelist folders from Chromium in .config to the google-chrome in .config in order to keep data. I've also solved another issue I had using Chromium: I wasn't able to see graphics which use WebGL. Now I have no problem.

I would of commented but i dont have the rep to do so sadly It seems like that chromium is complaining the config is corrupt in some parts. I'd suggest trying to reinstall chromium and seeing if the same problem occurs. I really hope this helps

Just to report back. I noticed these errors on the console when the system hangs: Failed to start Load Kernel Modules. I updated my kernel to 4.0, which didn't seem to work, and now I can't even boot from the 4.0 kernel. So I switched back to boot from 3.19, removed the problematic 4.0 kernel, and everything starts to work again. I suspect the ...

Did you try these for reinstalling desktop and unity ? sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop sudo apt-get install --reinstall unity

GrUB will write code and data to some devices which will utterly confuse some BIOS USB code. The only thing I found which will make some of my systems not freeze is to format the first partition (e.g., /dev/sdb1) as VFAT (intending it to be used for GrUB boot. And that doesn't work for all of them, but it seems to help with some. I mean, if you don't do ...

Found the problem: since the machine is a laptop, turning off the feature "Disable Trackpad when typing" in settings > keyboard did the trick. Nevertheless I think this is a bug. Can anyone give me advice where to report? Thanks!

I also recently began experiencing desktop freezes in Ubuntu 15.04 when minimizing certain application windows. The freezes always occurred in mid-animation, with Chromium and LibreOffice especially -- it seemed to occur with resource-hungry applications. I experimented with swapfile "swappiness" settings, but it didn't help. Finally, I used Unity Tweak to ...

So after 1,5 years of testing it seems I've finally solved this problem. All it took was sheding some light into the issue. Literally. This is what I was only able to see after putting some bright, direct light into my PCIe slot: I'm guessing this happened when I first inserted my video card into that slot. The card may have pushed a couple of pins ...

Have you updated your BIOS? ( http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4714&dl=1&RWD=0#bios ) I just got the 7870K with the F2A88XM-WIFI and ran in to similar problems on 15.04. Then tried OpenSuse 13.2 which failed more gracefully. Then tried Windows 8.1 and still it crashed. After updating the BIOS no crashes yet. fingers crossed ...

I was able to at least find a workaround for my problem. Even though I did try this with 14.04, following this guide: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingACPI I set the boot flag "acpi=off", which now seems to have solved my problem. I was able to install and use 15.04 for a couple of hours now without any problems.

These freezes happened to me too. It looks like the Nvidia driver from Ubuntu repository does not handle relatively new adapters well. But also it can be overheat. This also should be considered. I would start with upgrading the driver and kernel this way. sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-vivid reboot sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa ...

Looks to me like you have a problem with your disk drive sda1. It's formatted as an ext4 file system and the file system is spitting out errors. Probably one way of fixing it would be by copying as much data as you can from the drive and then discarding the drive and putting the data on another one. Expensive and time-consuming. You can try other things, ...

You are using an open source "radeon" driver for your video adapter. It may not perform well. I suggest installing a proprietary AMD driver. You can do it by running in terminal sudo apt-get install fglrx and reboot. Same task can be done in GUI. You can go to System Settings -> Software & Updates -> Additional Drivers and find there drivers for ...

Nothing that connects to graphics processing on the workstation works could be caused by a problem with the workstation's GPU if there is one, either with the graphics card itself or with the GPU's driver. From the terminal via ssh run this command: ubuntu-drivers devices This command will list the available proprietary graphics drivers and show ...

I would try to clean the repository of downloaded packages. Either of these commands (see man apt-get). apt-get autoclean apt-get clean If you don't have /tmp on tmpfs, you may want to delete all the files and directories under /tmp. A tool like tmpreaper can be used to keep it clean. You can also set edit /etc/defaults/rcS and uncomment the TMPTIME=0 ...

You can view some messages from the previous boot through journalctl with e.g. journalctl -b -1 (the -1 means "previous boot", -b -2 would give you the one before that etc.). The journal won't keep logs across boots unless the directory /var/log/journal exists, so sudo mkdir /var/log/journal if it's not there (and then systemctl restart systemd-journald or ...
