I have recently installed Ubuntu 16.10.
I frequently see screen flickering, but only when I open the terminal and run some commands, not when I use browsers or at any other time. When I press keyboard keys to type commands in the terminal I see flickers and after some time my entire screen goes blank, (but my laptop does not switch off) and I then have to force shut down every time. This problem does not happen when i am working on windows.
My graphics driver is Intel corporation core processor integrated graphics controller
