I recently installed Ubuntu Linux 15.10 on a Lenovo desktop.After a mysterious crash last night while testing point and click of an Mono-.NET 4.5 C# executable which DLLImport's an C++ shared object, the Files GUI manager , /usr/bin/xdg-open , flickers on and off . I removed the package xdg-utils and then installed it again followed by a system reboot and the Files GUI manager , /usr/bin/xdg-open , * still * flickers on and off.

   I goofed up. Nautilus is the file manager. An Xamarin expert advised I have driver issues.
so that either I force the system to disable 3d acceleration (the GUI is 3d accelerated by default), or I should change your graphics card, or I might have to update the driver.

   How do we force Nautilus to disable 3d acceleration?

  Please advise me how to fix this problem. Any help is greatly appreciated
