  1. [ubuntu] Re: Graphics Problem: Black Apps, Can't Select Tabs in Chrome, etc.

    I turned off hardware acceleration with some success, but not total. It's also happened a couple times with Firefox. Since the latest Chrome was released with the Aurora interface, I tried...

    [all variants] Re: System Freeze (14.04)

    Are you running Google Chrome when it freezes? That's a known problem that never seems to get much attention. If so, try this: Open Chrome and go to chrome://flags. If you've ever messed with the...

    [ubuntu] Update Notifier Won't Go Away

    Ever since I updated one of my machines to 14.04, the update notifier won't go away on one of them. The notifier pops up a few minutes after I log in, and won't go away even when there are no updates...

    Yeah, that's installed.
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Graphics Problem: Black Apps, Can't Select Tabs in Chrome, etc.

    I don't think it's anything to do with xcompmgr -- that's a lightweight compositing manager that you can use in place of compiz (I don't even have it installed).

    So you're using Chromium; I've had...
  6. [ubuntu] Graphics Problem: Black Apps, Can't Select Tabs in Chrome, etc.

    Proviso: I'm not assuming I'm posting this in the right forum (Hardware), nor that anyone has the answer. I'm mostly hoping to narrow down the issue so I can' find a solution.

    [ubuntu] Re: Does Chromium/Chrome kill your machine?

    Thanks for the replies -- I'll keep that pkill command handy. And yeah, cleaning everything out/reinstalling does help some (as long as the config files are nixed), but the seizures still persist.

    [ubuntu] Does Chromium/Chrome kill your machine?

    For some time now -- at least a good few months -- Chromium and to a lesser degree Chrome has been slaughtering my laptop, locking the entire works up, sometimes for hours, to the point of needing to...

    Re: Google Chrome freezes Ubuntu

    Aha -- I'm not alone in this. For some time I've had the exact same problem, and Chromium was actually worse; it would freeze up the system within minutes of opening it, instead of the hour or two...

    Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y510 is Go (Continued / NEW)

    Y'know, I didn't even think of the sound, which is strange because I wrote the guide on how to get sound working on these machines.

    Sound wasn't a problem when I was having the other problems, but...

    Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y510 is Go (Continued / NEW)

    I'm using 13.04 on my Y510. For the most part it's working, except I'm having a problem with the launcher autohiding -- it leaves a blank space on the left side of the screen, and that blank space...

  15. [ubuntu] Touchpad Havoc - Extra Clicks, Holding Single Click Too Long

    For some time -- a few versions, going back to at least 10.10 -- I've had some maddening issues with my synaptics touchpad. At seeming random moments, but most definitely after coming out of a blank...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Ctrl+F Constantly Launching: Which Package Controls Ctrl+F?

    I've isolated something: This seems to happen after coming out of a blank screen. In fact it immediately happens on whatever application is up front as soon as I reactivate the screen.

  18. [ubuntu] Re: Ctrl+F Constantly Launching: Which Package Controls Ctrl+F?

    Thanks for the reply. When I filed the bug the first time, it was rejected because I didn't link it to a package. All I know is that no matter the application -- Chrome, Nautilus, Liferea,...
