When I try to restart, everything but my desktop wallpaper disappears, but it hangs at that point seemingly indefinitely. Ctrl+alt+backspace sometimes lets me restart, sometimes I actually have to remove my laptop battery. Here's my syslog contents:

"scim-bridge: No such IMContext"

What exactly is that. Some piece of hardware. Some kind of bridge. It looks to be the culprit.

Seems like a piece of software to me: http://www.scim-im.org/projects/scim_bridge

I'm not sure what to make of that though. There are a lot of potential culprits in the log, but I think these two lines are important.

Jun 26 12:22:35 joseph-laptop gdm[5301]: WARNING: gdm_slave_xioerror_handler: Fatal X error - Restarting :0

I think the time difference there is the time between when Ubuntu was hanging after trying to restart and when I hit ctrl+alt+backspace. I don't have enough understanding of linux to know what the problem is though. Any ideas?

If my memory serves me right scim bridge is a language input function where you can type in languages that use script that is different from English.
