Hi guys,

I am running ubuntu 12.04LTS and Iam having system freeze problems every time when I resume from lock, suspend, and hibernate.

This problem comes up only in unity (ubuntu) desktop not in unity 2D (ubuntu 2D) or Gnome Classic.

I don't have complete idea about it, but when click on ubuntu logo in my login box I can see 4 options such as Ubuntu, Ubuntu 2D, Gnome Classic and Gnome Classic (No effects).
My System freezes when I use it in Ubuntu environment.

Is Ubuntu environment unity 3D?

Please help.

Thanks in Advance.

Tried in 3D...No luck


bash: /usr/lib/nux/unity_test: No such file or directory

Sorry I forgot to mention that I am using integrated graphics (HD 3000) not the NVidia.

Do the graphics need to be Nvidia? If so I don't have any idea how to make Nvidia work!

Specs look pretty good to me but I'm no expert.

It may have something to do with your graphics card.

It may be easier to download a terminal from Software Center

I have integrated graphics and Unity 12.04 is fine for me.

Thank you very much BlinkinCat.

Hope some one helps me.

oic. The above bug remains quite similar symptoms but on the other-side I have to make my Nvidia work and then confirm.

Because in my case after resume I can view all my open windows freezed (not black/ white screen) and only mouse moving.

And I don't remember what happened it was working until 2days before I started working with gnome 3 shell themes and cairo dock.And I also don't remember whether after installing ubuntu 12.04 it was on "Ubuntu" or "Ubuntu 2D" by default.

So now I have no idea how to find Nvidia installed or not? And what triggered my problem before 2days?

I installed bumblebee but don't know how to check nvidia.

Lets see if someone has any idea.

I fixed this problem by doing a clean install. Now my sytem is running in Ubuntu, Ubuntu 2D and XBMC dektop (Hurray!!! I love this xbmc enjoyed couple of movies flawlessly:popcorn:).

With this my System Suspends, Hibernates and No more Freezes.

I think something went wrong after messing with gnome shell and Cairo dock. However I did try both these desktops but I didn't enjoy them as much as i can do now in ubuntu desktop.Think they are not very reliable and stable desktops for ubuntu 12.04LTS.

However finally I am running 3D with integrated Intel graphics and I disabled NVIDIA in bios. As far as I know Nvidia is not required much unless you need it for gaming. And for Non Linear Video Editing and 3D design and other graphical apps intel HD 3000 should do.

My Sincere advice is not to mess up with other desktop environments unless you have good support.And also there are really some amazing features in ubuntu (unity 3D) to play:guitar: on, so please google it and try them.

Anyways this thread is [Solved] now. Thanks for BlinkinCat:)
