I have ASUS ZenBook UX305 with i7 CPU and integrated Intel GPU. My system (Ubuntu 15.10) recently started to go back to the login screen after some time active. It is caused by segfault in XServer. Here's the syslog fragment

I managed to solve my issue by using workaround described here:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-video-intel/+bug/1510970

to disable SNA.

I created /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf file with the following content:

Section "Device"
 Identifier "Card0"
 Driver "Intel"
 Option "AccelMethod" "uxa"
EndSection

  • Life saver. I installed Steam on Elementary OS Hera (which is Ubuntu Bionic essentially) and it screwed up something. Adding to Steam installation I had custom non apt Nvidia drivers (which were removed before applying this solution).
