I got a nice fast bootup after a clean Xubuntu 12.04 install, but after (only) installing amd drivers for HD5400, the delay after log in was really long.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:andreas-diesner/lightdm-fix-temporary sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
This brought me back into the 21st century. THANK YOU, usrflo!!!
Patched package from PPA worked fine for me too. Thank you very much.
Installing accountsservice packages from quantal fixed the problem for me:
Like many others I have this bug. I had it under Mint Mate 13, Mint XFCE 13, and Mint 14 Mate. Everytime this bug appears after the first big update. Before the boot was crazy fast.
All solution here and in others places did not worked for me.
The only trick I found: installing Preload. And my boot is faster but not amaising.
The simple question is: when they will really take care of this huge bug in lauch pad? What are they doing.
I know this is not here that i will have an answer, but i am very upset against them: this bug is official since more than 8 months.
Now I am an happy user of Mandrive, and there is nooooooooo slooooooow login problem.
After I enter my login and pass, no shortcut in desktop, dasboard empty, i cannot click anything... during almost a minute.
Before the first big update: everything was almost instant,whatever i use Ubutu or Mint.
For information, I used this computer 3 years with Mint 9 LTS with exactlly the same hardware and software installed: i never had this problem.
is it possible to login to your box via ssh to another account and switch to a root shell -
then run strace -ff -r -t -o your_debugfie -p PID_of_ligthdm
strace gives you the systemcalls of lightdm, ff -> follow childs (own debug file per child)
-r timedifference -t timestamp -p PID
then you have to login to your account.
in the created files (it's human readable) you can see where the time is spent.
