Comment 56 for bug 1568604

Hi,

Thank you so much Aaron!! I reported this bug in Ubuntu Mate and your fix
worked for me. In a nutshell I ran these 2 commands:

sudo mkdir /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/
echo -e 'Section "Device"\n Identifier "Card0"\n Driver "Intel"\n
Option "AccelMethod" "uxa"\nEndSection' | sudo tee
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf
