    ubuntu randomly logs out after upgrading to 13.04

    Hi,
    I recently upgraded to 13.04 and since then my desktop, seemingly randomly, logs me off and goes back to the login screen.

    This goes very fast. There is no message or warning, no freeze (or it should be for a tiny fraction of a second).
    After logging in all programs are closed.
    It seems random. Sometimes after 5 minutes with only firefox running. Sometimes after hours with plenty of programs running. Sometimes after being away and simply moving the mouse.

    I problably could do a clean install, but I would rather know what is happening and how I can fix this, but I have no idea where to begin to debug this.

    Anybody any ideas how I could find the cause?

    This can be graphics card and driver related . System Log/ Xorg.0.Log may offer some clues.

    Hi Frogs,
    thanks for your reply. And what should I be looking for? in Xorg.0.Log?

    Warnings or failures would be a good place to start . An example would be video driver modules not loading properly or failing .

    I see no errors (EE) in the file, only these warnings:
    Code:

    Are you using the default graphics drivers or did you install proprietary drivers from additional drivers ?

    Run this in a terminal.

    copy the resulting link when you post back

    Code:
    pastebinit ~/.xsession-errors

    Hi Frogs,

    Have a look in system settings - software and update- additional drivers. Try the recommended if any.

    Hi philinux,
    I had a look, but there are no recommended additional drivers. This is my graphic chipset: Intel® G33 x86/MMX/SSE2
