At least once a day, my new Ubuntu 13.10 setup hangs such that the mouse works, but nothing else does.
If I had a control + alt + delete key-like sequence, perhaps I could kill a few processes?
QUESTION: Does Ubuntu have a way to interact by keyboard to kill and restart the X-window process (or Firefox or whatever application is hanging the system)?
Also, is there a Ubuntu 13.10 debug switch so a normal USER can analyze system crashes?
Ever since I installed Ubuntu 13.10 a few days ago, it has been hanging on me, on the order of once every day or two.
It hangs mostly when multiple apps are running, but, once it hangs, NOTHING I can do short of rebooting will help.
I get a lot of these messages to send detailed debug information to Canonical, which I always do.
But, it's so frequent, that I was wondering:
Is there something I can do AHEAD of time to set a debug switch and then look at WHY this is happening?
