Can you help me with this issue?
I am on Solus Budgie. I'm using it from more than 2 years. It is great and love it.
But recently I'm experiencing constant freezes after the last updates. I should have done a few history packages back to test for the problem, but I did instead a fresh install and now I lost the update history. So I can't tell for sure, is it from the new Solus 4.1 with the new kernel or from which specific update in row. I had no problems with Solus 4.0 The problem occurred this month.
The freeze happens while I'm using Krita. I draw a lot. I'm using Krita to draw for work. I'm using an appimage of Krita from very long time without problems. But now the system stuck. I've tried and installed Krita from the repository. The freeze happens again and with this option.
Only restart from the PC button is the remedy.
I can't reproduce the issue in steps. It is random. Sometimes when krita autosaves, sometimes when I'm deforming image, sometimes when just drawing or drag an image. Usually it is a full freeze with mouse and keyboard halt, but some times mouse is active. I managed once while in freeze to enter the Console with CTRL+ALT+F2. It appeared to work fine, but I'm not so advanced linux user to know what to do in this mode, so when got back to the graphic environment, it was still stuck screen.
I think it happened and 2 times when I was using Blender.
I don't have the issue with other programs or other use of Souls so far.
I understand that the problem could be everything, but still... any ideas?
Tomorrow, I'm gonna test drawing with an old version of Solus on USB that I have. And perhaps with different linux distro, just for measure.
OK, the result update:
I've been drawing all day long with Krita appimage under live USB of Solus Plasma - the test version that was Solus 4.0 with kernel 4.20.16-112. No freezing issues with it, except that Krita crashed on me once. There were no problems during the rest of the time.
