I think both Chrome and Firefox use PPAPI, the pepper flash plugin so could be a compatibility issue with that. I would try looking in ~/.xsession-errors or ~/.xsession-errors.old if you have had to reboot. Also if you have an Intel display adapter then try enabling "sna" as the Acceleration Method, it fixes a lot of video issues with some Intel chipsets in ...

I found a temporary reprieve from this issue by disabling the 'Always show remote images' option in Reading preferences, it was driving me nuts!! Hope that helps.

Running the command sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-wily will upgrade your Kernel to 4.2, which solved many of my issues with Skylake.

So, I've found the culprit! The wingpanel-indicator-sound version 2.0.3 is the one that's crashing and thus making the entire wingpanel disappear. Removing the package is a temporary solution. I've already submitted a bug report on the wingpanel-indicator-sound project page.

I found the workaround here: https://github.com/elementary/music/issues/391 It crashes on startup if an NTFS partition is mounted. I unmounted all network shares and it doesn't crash on startup for me anymore.

You can enter the recovery mode and reset your system settings. There are many reasons for this problem. You can edit the Startup menu at the grub interface E, enter ‘acpi=off’, and then press F10 into the system. If you can see the desktop, please uninstall the graphics driver.

I've found something interesting that may be related to your issue: Baytrail complete freeze If you are using kernel > 3.16 on Baytrail architecture and randomly encounter total system freezes, the following kernel option is a workaround until this bug is fixed in the linux kernel. intel_idle.max_cstate=1 This is originally an Intel CPU ...

This also happens on AMD desktops too. I cannot seem to pinpoint it, and it is rather annoying. I don't really have a solution, but try adding these repos to keep up to date with your software. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-5-3 sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/updates Those will keep LibreOffice Stable and you video ...

The most recent system update as of mid July 2017 in appcenter seems to partially fix the application problems; as I suspected the gtk-warning/error have now been removed. This allowed me to open apps which previously crashed such as Libreoffice and Skrooge. However, system slowdowns and lockups persisted. If you read the issues in my OP you would see I have ...

When it freezes up, try to get to the terminal: Ctrl+Alt+F2. If it works, have a look at the following logs, /var/log/lightdm/lightdm.log and /var/log/syslog. Also, try restarting lightdm service: sudo service lightdm restart Those are not the only logs to check, but it's a good start. You can either try to reproduce the problem or check the logs by date, ...

ok I fix the problem by upgrading to kernel 4.11 and blacklist the nouveau driver and install bbswitch and load it at startup via modules.conf

I just tried running an Arch system via live USB and it crashed the same way elementary has been. I conclude it must be a hardware issue.

I've made progress, done updates and used clamtk to neutralise the trojan that caused it. I think it came from an ad-spamming website hdeuropics, where I watched a frebbie movie, I went searching for every possible file it could have got to but went too far and destroyed my profile's system shared user files, meaning I couldn't log in. I used terminal to ...

I managed to solve the problem by disabling the USB 3.0 support in the notebook's BIOS. Note: This also made the "quite splash" edit obsolete.

I have this bug also on stable release of Loki. It's probably this bug 1635254 (desktop freezes & misbehaves on login) As a temporary fix i changed Settings => Security & Privacy, unchecked lock after screen turn off.
