    Session x11 not working. Any action on desktop is ignored.

    Session x11 not working. Any action on desktop is ignored, only mouse arrow moves on the screen.
    Session wayland works fine.
    Also live session from Ubuntu 20.04 LTS "Focal Fossa" - Alpha amd64 (20191030) and 20191031
    has the same problem.

    I've been having what sounds like similar problems, but with both X11 and Wayland. Restarting X (when using X11) via SSH seems to result in the system locking up again almost immediately. Mine's running in KVM, and I had wondered if that was making any difference.

    Installed on a different partition from last ISO Ubuntu 20.04 LTS "Focal Fossa" - Alpha amd64 (20191101) I have the same problem.
    Also on a different hardware with ISO dated 20191019 was working fine but after update+upgrade I have the same problem.

    Saw same when installing from daily pending image several days ago.
    Live session unusable, after direct install an Ubuntu session develops same issue sometime within several minutes.
    However then installed the unity session, it works fine so sorta doubt this is an xorg bug, maybe gnome-shell

    On further investigation, I think that my particular Wayland problem is with Synaptic. (I guess it's bug-report time. ) Otherwise, Wayland seems to work well. Xorg seems to be the one that's locking up on me. I notice that if I try logging in via ssh and issue a shutdown command, ssh gets disconnected but the VM won't close down.

    Gnome-shell had some xorg bugs during the latter stages of eoan testing, so this might well be yet another one.

    The problem of Synaptic in Wayland is old and still unresolved: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...c/+bug/1731324
    in my Ubuntu 20.04 with Wayland Synaptic can be used if called with SUDO.

    Thanks, that might be a workaround in the meantime.
