View Full Version : [ubuntu] Does your Unity dash sometimes freeze for 30 seconds?

August 22nd, 2012, 02:30 AM
Sometimes, at random kinds of queries, my Unity dash just freezes for a short time, then compiz crashes, and everything restarts (which is how things go when compiz crashes). I use nVidia proprietary drivers.

Does this happen to anybody else? I just want to know whether it's something up to me, nVidia, or a general bug (there are too many random crash bugs like this for the bug tracker to be useful)...

This happened once for me. Have you tried Ubuntu 2D?

I think nVidia is at fault (their drivers are terrible). Like 5l4y3r said, try Unity 2D, or uninstall nVidia's driver and use the default driver (which is a rather complex process, should not be used if you are unsure)

Here's to hoping that Steam's influence trickles down to me :) In the meantime, I'll try to live with it!
