Weird freezing issue.


Description Nathan Dehnel 2018-07-02 04:28:50 CEST
When I log in, XFCE freezes except the cursor. It also happens after exiting a game and sometimes just randomly. Switching TTY and back fixes it. Using nvidia drivers.

So, please provide more info, by your (very brief) description, it could be anything, hard to tell if it's a problem in xfwm4 or any other Xfce component. Look for evidences in journalctl (if you distribution uses systemd), .xsession-errors or dmesg.
Comment 2 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2018-07-07 09:51:52 CEST
Can you please provide the output of “xfwm4 --version” and also indicate if you have the compositor enabled?

If the compositor is enabled, you may want to try to disable it and report back.

The compositor does not seem to affect it.

This is in dmesg when I log in:
