I've made the full migration to Linux recently by installing EOS on my main(and only) rig but I've recently noticed it takes about a minute and 48 seconds after timing it once I log in for the dock and panel to show up. I ran dmesg | grep error and got this:

[ 13.176596] EXT4-fs (sda2): re-mounted. Opts: errors=remount-ro [ 13.855271] bluetooth hci0: Direct firmware load for brcm/BCM.hcd failed with error -2

Try running these commands

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get full-upgrade

Let the system upgrade everything and then reboot the system. This was addressed recently and is a known bluetooth bug.

for reference, my computer takes about 40 seconds to load.
