    Exclamation 12.10 Slow Login (First Login Only)

    Hello All,

    I'm an ubuntu user for quiet long time, I own Dell Inspiron n5110, with 2 Graphics Cards, Nvidia GeForce GT 525M and Intel HD Integrated Graphics Card, I have bumblebee installed and working fine. I have also Compiz Config Setting Manager installed and set and working just fine.

    When I first installed the system everything was just ok, but after a couple of months, the system boots in quiet long time, this is actually not the problem, as I have a couple of servers (Web, Database) running so I think this causes the delay.

    The problem is that the first login after a reboot/system start always take long time till unity appears and the desktop is available for use. This happens for the first login only and then it's just fine if I logged out and then logged in again, it's really fast then.

    I tried resetting unity and compiz but had no improvements at all.

    Any help will be really appreciated.

    Thanks in Advance!

    What programs are automatically started? Did you try to create another user and see if the problem is the same?

    Thanks a lot for your reply.

    The programs that are automatically started applications:
    • Bluetooth Manager
    • Gnome Setting Daemon
    • GPG Password Agent
    • GSettings Data Conversion
    • Mount Helper
    • Network
    • PolicyKit Authentication Agent
    • PulseAudio Sound System
    • Screensaver
    • Secret Storage Service
    • SSH Key Agent
    • Zeitgeist Datahub

    I tried adding another user, it's a bit faster, but not as when I relogin after an initial login.

    I have the same problem in 12.04 LTS, but it's not just the first time. Even when I log out, it's slow as molasses before Unity appears.

    I pruned my startup programs to: Autokey, Classic Menu Indicator, Dropbox, Weather Indicator. I have used these for a long time and my system logged in just fine after I installed them.

    I'm thinking it may be Unity, because when I try without Unity it seems marginally faster.
