[SOLVED]Black flyout menus in Google Chrome 44.0.2403.125

Post by Habitual »

Version 44.0.2403.125 (64-bit) of Google Chrome is doing this

inxi stuff:

Code: Select all

System:    Host: my-kungfu Kernel: 3.13.0-37-generic x86_64 (64 bit) Desktop: Xfce 4.11.8
           Distro: Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca
Graphics:  Card: NVIDIA GK106 [GeForce GTX 660]
           Display Server: X.Org 1.15.1 drivers: nouveau (unloaded: fbdev,vesa)
           Resolution: 1920x1080@60.0hz, 1920x1080@60.0hz

nvidia-settings -v

nvidia-settings:  version 331.20  (buildd@roseapple)  Mon Feb  3 15:07:22 UTC 2014
  The NVIDIA X Server Settings tool.

  This program is used to configure the NVIDIA Linux graphics driver.
  For more detail, please see the nvidia-settings(1) man page.

Try to 'guess' and 'use' one of the flyout menus (I hovered over where I expected something to work anyway)
caused X to dump me out to a console that showed a hand-shaped pointer/cursor and system required hard boot.
This happened 3 times out of 3 that I tried. Done with that.

Any ideas?

Same behavior here with Chrome (latest) and a Geforce 610 using nouveau.

When xorg crashes and you get a command prompt, log in quickly and run "sudo killall -9 chrome" to catch it before xorg restarts. This way I have been able to recover.

FYI the latest nvidia restricted driver fixes it.

and how do I get the 'latest'?
You mentioned restricted, so it's a repo thing and not a web download, is my guess.

Thanks.
Found this in Synaptic: > Origins (after installing ubuntu-restricted-extras) ...
NVIDIA binary driver - version 346.82

Please advise, Thanks.

Re-installed OS after another error showed up.

Current working config is

Code: Select all

inxi -G
Graphics:  Card: NVIDIA GK106 [GeForce GTX 660]
           Display Server: X.Org 1.15.1 drivers: nvidia (unloaded: fbdev,vesa,nouveau)
           Resolution: 1920x1080@60.0hz, 1920x1080@60.0hz
           GLX Renderer: GeForce GTX 660/PCIe/SSE2 GLX Version: 4.5.0 NVIDIA 346.82
and a shiny new build Version 44.0.2403.130 (64-bit)

Gremlins, I guess.
