    Screen flickering Ubuntu 18.04

    Hey, anyone experience screen flickering in Ubuntu 18.04? Mine started doing this about a month ago. Only fix is to log out or reboot. I don't think it's my video card or it would likely happen more than once a week. My pc stays on 24/7 and I use the open source driver.

    Hey,
    Yes, I experienced this issue too, and the installation of the nvidia drivers solved my problem.

    If I am to update the video drivers where would I find Intel graphics card? It still happens about every 5 days or so. I just log out and log back in, but its annoying. I am hoping to get some ideas from the Graphics experts out there.

    Intel drivers are already with the kernel, they work out of the box.
    Just a couple of ideas for your problem, did you try upgrading to kernel 4.18, it is now supported in Ubuntu 18.04;
    also you could try to login using wayland, maybe it will not "flicker".
