I've just installed Ubuntu 17.10, because it has
xserver 1.19.x and up to date kernels for nvidia prime synch for my dedicated card in my laptop.
But it keeps randomly freezing. Mouse moves, but can't interact with anything. Everything is frozen, no keyboard commands respond. I have to hard restart my laptop.
I had issues with prime sync not working, so after contacting support I've disabled Wayland and use
xorg, now it finally does and I have no screen tear issues.
/etc/gdm3/custom.conf uncomment the line
I've read in a similar problem that it's maybe because of gnome wanting wayland?
I have gnome extension installed as well. Tweak tool and Ark theme, Paper Icon pack.
Can I fix this by changing from gnome to something else? Is it supported in 17.10?
What can I do to stop this issue?
