Ever since the 510 series of drivers came out, there has been a crashing issue when trying to use the SteamVR dashboard which causes the whole Desktop Environment to crash and makes the system inoperable. This wasn’t an issue with the 470 and 495 series.
This issue has been on the SteamVR github issues list for a while now. I am merely forwarding this so that someone has a look at this. [BUG] SteamVR error causes my entire Desktop Environment and GPU to crash (libcef.so error 4 & VRMonitor cannot find libraries) · Issue #489 · ValveSoftware/SteamVR-for-Linux · GitHub
