[Bug 1453812] [NEW] System freeze when using LibreOffice Writer


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

LibreOffice Writer is freezing the system after a few minutes (Ubuntu
15.04, libreoffice-writer 4.4.2-0ubuntu1): the only possible action is
moving the mouse pointer on the screen. Impossible to connect to a tty
session to kill Xorg. A physical reboot is necessary. Note that I used
LibreOffice Calc without problem.

The problem has been encountered also under Fedora 21:
The solution proposed on this french forum is to replace the "nouveau" driver by the "nvidia" proprietary driver (340.76).
It works for me.
