I have ubuntu 10.10 32bit running on my Asus EEEPC 1005PX. I am experiencing frequent desktop crashes. When I turn on my netbook at least once in 5 times the defualt ubuntu theme disapears and the classic gnome theme appears. Many times while doing some work, the desktop crashes and the CLI gets shown, and after a few seconds the login screen appers. I am not using any widgets or dock bars, I just have a single gnome panel with default menus. The crashes also happen when using the default bundled ubuntu apps. Is there any way to avoid these crashes?
I'm having the same problem but not very frequently at all, try opening another window(
startx from there, if the process is already active and you can't have it running twice try to kill it, looking for the process number with
ps aux, then
I'm not sure if
ps aux gives the processes started in another session.
