Well, I really should reconsider soda or tea while at the computer to prevent things like Audrey's wireless keyboard from getting soaked and ruined. And to better control my anger and frustration when it comes to computer issues. I have been starting to control it thankfully, but I still need work.

As for a new wireless keyboard and mouse, I think I might have one on hand, but I don't know where the receivers are. If I could find the receivers, instant replacement. If not, I may as well get the second wireless keyboard/mouse set that the local PC store has. It's around USD $30 so finding a receiver for my existing receivers would save me money.

For now, Audrey still has a wireless mouse but I will have to resort to an on screen keyboard if I want to install software or for root privilege.

Hmm... another bug with Kubuntu Linux, but it appears to be in the desktop compositing engine. Once every two days, the entire system freezes except the mouse. Ctrl Alt Backspace will kill X, but screen and backlight go out and I must force a power off. I did notice something... before the freeze happens, the various window animations become slow. That happened last night but before a possible freeze, I turned off the desktop effects and turned them back on. So far, all the effects are running normally again and no freeze yet.

If it does freeze again, I need to Ctrl+Alt+F1 to drop to a shell and see the dmesg output. Apparently, I'm not the only Kubuntu user experiencing this bug.

I hope this bug is gone in 15.04. KDE Plasma 5 uses an all new compositing engine.

Turn off composting. You don't really need it, and well, it can potentially conflict with OpenGL games.

I do turn it off when playing games, but I turn it back on after I'm done. I used Win7 so much that no compositing looks bland and boring to me now. It really does. KDE has a handy keyboard shortcut for toggling desktop effects, so turning it off for games is no big deal.

so, improvise and turn composting off and back on everytime you start to feel a slowdown. I suspect a memory leak in the compositor.

It's entirely possible, but I also read the bug report at the link I provided and apparently the Xorg Intel driver segfaults for some reason, leading to the freeze. Since it hasn't happened to me again, I haven't been able to see what the issue with Greta is. I would have to drop to a shell and view dmesg output if it happens again.

I also heard of Magic Sysrq, a key combination that can let you rescue a frozen system (provided a kernel panic hasn't occurred), or intentionally crash it. I need more research on it first.

Well, the Magic SysRQ doesn't work in the Buntu and Mint distros by default, you enable it explicitly using sysctl, but to be honest I have never needed it since I sorted out the NVidia MSI issue.
