So I'm not alone. I have the same problem on an Asus zenbook, i7 ice lake and iris graphics and a corei5 laptop. Telling dt not to use Opencl stops the crashing. As does waiting for dt to finish what it's doing before tweaking something else...mostly.

I had darktable crashed occasionally, especially living on the master branch, but I can always force quit or "killall darktable". When this crash happened, nothing can close darktable window, I can still use the system normally though.

I think in my case, as I told darktable to prioritize the 1050Ti, whenever I don't wait for it to finish a task (on the nVidia), it'd invoke the Intel GPU, and that randomly crashed darktable. Simply disabling Intel OpenCL (renaming /etc/OpenCL/vendors/intel.icd) has stopped the crash.

BTW you can click the close window button on dt, wait for the not responding prompt, then force quit. Then use alt-printscreen together then holding those down type R E I S U B slowly to force a reboot, it's kinder on the system than turning it off.

ah, thanks for the trick, I'll try it if it'll ever happen again.

FWIW, my Ubuntu laptop went through the shutdown process, logged out and quit Xorg, shutting off the external monitor. Here's what was stuck on the laptop screen after two minute or so, forcing me to hold down the power button to finish it off.
