Linux Mint "Super Freezes"

Right around version 12 was the last 'real' Opera. By 15 they were all Chromium based and they pretty much sucked until version 21 - maybe 23 depending on your standards. They add some features that make them unique, but are otherwise a very usable browser today. There was a pretty rough patch where they dumped a ton of users.
Similar problem: system freezes frequently (~three times per day).

Thanks for any help!
any improvements ?
Yep, It is working fine, not a glitch since I ran those scripts, Thanks so much.

re: also, I would recommend a Xanmod kernel as a plan B solution by run the script in the attachment to install the kernel

I haven't pursued that because it seems to be fixed.
Good outcome - congrats :)

I've never had this problem but I don't use a Graphics Card anymore...I use nouveau the open source driver that comes with Linux Mint.
