Ubuntu memory freeze

July 29th, 2015


I recently installed Chrome Remote Desktop to my linux workstation, after a day or so my system which had an uptime of 36 days all of sudden began to freeze up. On quick research, using my Windows laptop (how ironic) I found out Chrome Remote Desktop was causing a bug within Ubuntu’s deja-dup monitor making it fill up whatever memory you have available; 16GB in my case.

Solution: Uninstall Chrome Remote Desktop.
