Bug Description

At random intervals the screen suddenly pixelates.

Please let me know if you need any other logs and I can provide the same.

Oh, sorry. You seem to be using unsupported graphics drivers from "oibaf".

Please remove those using ppa-purge, reboot, and if the problem persists then reopen this bug.
