    I had been using Unity 2019.x and other 2020.x versions successfully under Ubuntu 20.04.1 until recently. Since then there have been a couple of firmware updates in Ubuntu. Today I am unable to start the Unity Editor as it freezes (including flickering) the screen completely leaving it unresponsive. I have tried almost the whole range of Unity versions available, without success. The Laptop is the newest DELL XPS13. Is there any chance of having a working Unity Editor at this point?

    Output from inxi -Fxz is:
