Almost always after a sleep or hibernate (I'm not entirely sure which) most fonts, such as those in Terminal and most other programs (not Firefox) disappear. How can I fix this?

I am using the Loki version of the OS.

Prof. Falken.

I searched on forums high and low to solve this issue. I can not remember where I found the solution, but this worked for me:

sudo apt-get install linux-image-generic-hwe-16.04

The consensus seemed to be that there is a slight problem with the Intel graphics driver in the default kernel and that switching to the generic kernel works around or fixes the issue.
