View Full Version : [SOLVED] Long delay between gdm-login and gnome-shell

Hi,

as uttered in a different thread already, I'm suffering from intolerably long delays between gdm-login and the availability of the gnome-shell (up to 40 seconds).

Usually it takes that long when logging in directly after a fresh boot. It usually takes 25 seconds until the gdm-wallpaper is replaced by the users wallpaper. After that it takes another 10-15 seconds until the top-panel appears and sometimes again 5-10 seconds until the GUI is responsive to mouse/keyboard input.

If I log out from a current session and log in again, I don't experience those delays!

There are no helpful entries in the most important log files.

Is there anybody else suffering from this? What might cause this behaviour? Is this a known bug or is it worth to report this?

Hi

It is probably hardware dependant as GNOME Shell depends on acceleration. File it with your display details

no, I'm sorry, but you got me completely wrong. I've been experiencing this for weeks now.

"yum remove at-spi2*" should help to reduce the delay (see mail here) (http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/test/2011-March/098400.html). For me the delay between login and Gnome 3 desktop is about 12 seconds now. Still not fast but ok :)

Thank you for this hint, but I removed all a11y-tools immediately after installation of F15, so there are no packages at-spi* ... by the way, the delay is getting shorter from update to update, so I'm hopeful this will be OK until the final release ;-)

That seems to make a big difference for me. Cheers.

I am getting the long delay as well. And as tuxor above, the delay does seem to be getting shorter with each update.

I haven't been looking too much into it since it has been improving, though. I figured they at least had a handle on the issue, knew what was causing it, and are taking steps to alleviate the problem.

Now if I could just figure out how to get the danged desktop back so I could drop my files on it, I would be happy :D

@DBelton I am sure I saw something related to dropping files on desktop in the dconf-editor, I don't exactly remember where and I can not check because dconf-editor has been broken for quite some time now. If you have the patience to look through gsettings by listing keys you may find it :D

@DBelton I think I found it. Install gnome-tweak-tool and its there under file manager tab.

calanor, yes there is an option to let filemanager control the desktop, but it does not work like you would think it does. I tried it the other day and at first it looked like it was just what I wanted... Until I opened a folder. Then that folder became the desktop, and there was no way to close it, or get out of it :(

It is a little progress, though, and it makes me think that with a little tweaking, I may get my good ole desktop back yet :)
