My startup finished in 6.064s (firmware) + 5.632s (loader) + 4.799s (kernel) + 1.391s (userspace) = 17.888s graphical.target reached after 1.382s in userspace

Also, is the firewall really necessary? I'll be mostly working while connected to my home WiFi and some Python studies at Cafés(public WiFi) etc.

Thanks in advance.

The only service/daemon I see in your list you could disable safely is pantheon-parental-controls.service... in case you're an adult :P

I'm not sure about the firewall service, maybe is needed elsewhere. It needs more research.

Anyway is better to use this command not the one you used

sudo systemd-anaylze plot > boot.svg

, then upload boot.svg that way we can see which service is really slowing down your machine, and of course one you don't need and is safe to disable.

Use at your own risk

To disable a service sudo systemctl disable <service-name.service>

To enable a service sudo systemctl enable <service-name.service>

  • Thanks for your reply @Sebastian. Please excuse me but how can I add the .svg file to my message? Thank you. – codear Nov 29 '18 at 6:00
  • There are many ways... the easiest... go to cloudconvert.com/svg-to-png and convert it into png o jpg. Then use the normal way to upload an image in your post. Also if you want to see it and you dont have any program, a browser can open it, like Chrome. – Sebastian Nov 29 '18 at 6:20
