After resuming I have a graphics issue with textures (not sure, see screenshots).

Windows frame:

about window

Viber app:

viber app

Also some other apps are affected.

Some video info:

$ lspci | grep 'VGA\|3D'

01:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation GM204M [GeForce GTX 970M] (rev a1)

$ glxinfo | grep OpenGL
OpenGL vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
OpenGL renderer string: GeForce GTX 970M/PCIe/SSE2
OpenGL core profile version string: 4.5.0 NVIDIA 375.39
OpenGL core profile shading language version string: 4.50 NVIDIA

Unity reload (Alt+F2 → unity) helps, but it crashes the most of open apps.

Any suggestions?

UPD: seems like it is bug of NVidia card/driver (reproduced with nvidia-367, nvidia-370, nvidia-375, nvidia-378).

Had the same issue - "fixed" by rolling back to NVIDIA-367:


  • remove/disable driver PPA Purge all previous drivers check 367 is newest available install 367 & restart
  • goto software/sources, find the NVIDIA drivers and disable, exit and this -should force package update, then open up a terminal:
  • sudo apt-get purge nvidia-*
  • sudo ubuntu-drivers devices #check that 367 is available
  • sudo apt-get install nvidia-367
  • restart the computer
