Over the last few days, I’ve started experiencing a strange issue where I can’t get back into my windows manager (LXQt) after the computer stood idle for some time (+/- 20 minutes). I can drop into a virtual terminal (CTRL+ALT+F3) and start SSDM, though it’s a little buggy (lots of panels/windows fail to load).
Anyone else experiencing this type of problem?
After a system upgrade that might have updated the Nvidia proprietary drivers, my system complained that it was unable to run xscreensaver. I, therefore, disabled the screen saver and all power saving options. This includes the option to lock the screen when idle.
Also, there’s nothing in the
Things I’ve tried to resolve the issue…
- Disabled the screensaver (screensaver).
- Disabled all power saving options.
- Disabled “lock screen” after idle time.
Things that I’m considering doing…
- Switch to nouveau drivers.
- Switch to LTS kernel.
Can anyone recommend any other possible solutions to consider.
