UI Freezing several times per day

Post by am577 »

Running Mint 13 32-bit & Cinnamon. PC has Nvidia GPU. Standard Nouveau driver.
Occasionally the UI locks up and I have to reboot. The display is unchanged, but the mouse cursor disappears.
Anyone else see this ?

Similar setup (nVidia GPU here to on my main box) but I haven't had any freeze in quite a long time, have you tried using the proprietary drivers for your GPU?

the only times i have freezes is sometimes when i mess with cinnamon-settings, for example changing themes or adding applets

I have tried the proprietary driver, but when I install it the Panel disappears (from along the top of the screen)...
I'm still trying to recover from that (and diagnose what causes it...).
Occasional freeze/reboots are slightly preferable to no Panel. Neither is ideal !

That sounds weird, at this point I'd say that someone more expert than me may help if you provide more info (e.g. output of Cinnamon crashing, X server log, etc.).
