< My Problem >

Blender freezes whole UI of operating system.

< Solution >

I am not responsible if this damage your OS or any other thing

I have Intel UHD 630 GPU, I switched from Intel to MODESETTING driver, this fixed my issue, Try it IF it works for you , share with other people. :)

*To enable MODESETTING you have to edit /etc/mkinitcpio.conf
Put MODULES=(... i915 ...) below MODULES="" *Delete this package from system xf86-video-intel. *Then reboot system.

< About System >

CPU: Intel core i5-8400 Ram: 8gb Gpu : Intel UHD 630 Os: EndeavourOS

< How to revert these changes? >

*Install this package system xf86-video-intel. *You have to edit /etc/mkinitcpio.conf
remove MODULES=(... i915 ...) below MODULES=""
