I just updated to Kubuntu 17.10 from 17.04. During the initial install, the desktop would not load. After some work in the root shell (including using
dpkg to fix some issues, I got the desktop GUI back up.
Now, the screen seems to be flickering and hanging at random intervals, and seemingly just with the focused application. As I write this, the entire screen will freeze from time to time, save for the mouse cursor.
Is anyone else experiencing a similar issue?
