Debian squeeze / Gnome - is the graphical interface dying?Asked byalexandru andronache
About a year ago I ran into a problem: at any random moment, the graphical interface simply stops responding to input devices. All applications continue to work, messages arrive in IM, pop-up windows appear, it’s interesting that the cursor moves with the mouse, but nothing can be done. I sit and watch.
A few months ago, it was decided to switch to the next desktop and back (Ctrl + Alt + to the right). Now, even this does not help (although the problem began to occur much less frequently - once or twice a month). You have to open the console and restart gdm. In the same console restarted hal and dbus - also nothing.
Over the past year, I think everything has been updated: both xorg and gthumb (sometimes when it was closed and when working in the Gimp, everything happened), nvidia drivers, and several full upgrades.
gnome: 2.30 + 1
xorg: 7.5 + 6
Look like that's it. Faced?
Try to create a new user and some time to work from him, with a clean profile. Perhaps the problem in the settings.
Just now doubts appeared. Look, you have in the Options- & gt; Keyboard tab “Mouse buttons” ticked “Allow to control the pointer from the keyboard”?
