Same problem here. Started after upgrade to 12.04.
Suddenly the screen goes black, and after a while the login screen is shown. All running applications are killed.

that error message has nothing to do with the crash, it just shows that the xserver has died and pulls the rug beneath gnome-session.

affects: xorg (Ubuntu) → nvidia-graphics-drivers (Ubuntu)

I have the same problem on a fresh install of 12.04 - NOT upgrade.
From time to time, the X session - whether in Gnome Shell or Unity - simply dies.

I attach my .xsession-errors.old

This bug seems related to #583525, although the other one is for 10.04 and expired
In both cases, 64-bit desktop with Nvidia graphics

Status changed to 'Confirmed' because the bug affects multiple users.

Changed in nvidia-graphics-drivers (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed
Erez (erez-hadad) wrote :

I should point out that I was NOT affected by the related bug on 10.04 - I had it running for years without issues, 64bit with nvidia driver. The driver version was 195.36.24-0ubuntu1~10.04.2 for 10.04 and for 12.04 it is 295.40-0ubuntu1

(Note: I understand that this is an nvidia bug, and I do not have nvidia drivers. I comment to make it clear that it might NOT be an nvidia bug.)

I have the same problem: Fresh install of 12.04 x64, Nvidia 304.37 driver.

I didn't have this problem in 10.04; actually I would say it's started in the last few months but I can't put an exact date on it.

Lakin Wecker (lakin) wrote :

This is also affecting me. I had been using Ubuntu 12.04 with a slightly older version of the nvidia driver downloaded from nvidias site. This past weekend, I installed a new SSD - and new Nvidia drivers 304.51 - and I'm just experienced it for the first time, and it's happened twice in the past 20 minutes now.

I should have mentioned, 64bit linux as well.
