When I turn on my notebook, I put the password and it comes in, the startup icons do not appear, it takes a few minutes, it never happened. How can I solve this problem? 100% updated version elementary OS 0.4 Loki (64-bit)

  • Sometimes after updates a few next startups take a bit longer than usually. – Dysproz Feb 15 '17 at 13:25

This is a known bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/elementaryos/+bug/1596377

This is the workaround: Significant lag loading panel and dock after login (Loki)

mv /etc/xdg/autostart/at-spi-dbus-bus.desktop /etc/xdg/autostart/at-spi-dbus-bus.disabled

    basically, the way I understand it, it's trying to autostart a service and it hangs preventing the desktop environment from fully loading. Disabling the service in this way prevents it from being loaded at startup. AT SPI stands for Assistive Technology Service Provider Interface, a framework to integrate accessibility functions in applications. – Pretzel Jones Nov 18 '17 at 22:06

One of the easy ways to do this is to check that on right clicking the icon a sub menu should appear with the option to run or open the application as administrator. This should take care of those locked folders and files. Currently I am using Elementary OS Loki (64-bit, intel) which is a derivative of Ubuntu 16.04. I hope this should work.

I was facing same problem before, but now it is working.

  • Have you placed shortcut of other applications in dock? If so, then can you remove one at a time and check if it is working?

  • Also first try to login with guest account and then go over your account.
