After a system update the indicators and the clock (wing panel) is taking a long time to appear, has anyone experienced something similar? Or know how to fix it?

Thank you

  • I'm having the same problem. How did you uninstall the parental control Plugin? – Ayo Isaiah Oct 14 '15 at 11:48
  • sudo apt-get purge switchboard-plug-parental-controls – Daniel Röhrig Oct 25 '15 at 11:11

I solved this problem by uninstalling the Parental Control plugin in System Settings:

sudo apt-get remove switchboard-plug-parental-controls

Not sure why.

  • Could you elaborate? What package is that? – morningbird Nov 4 '15 at 8:49

Most likely the problem arises from the use of unstable repository ppa:elementary-os/daily. If you have no pressing need to use it, it is better to disable it. Install and use ppa-purge:

sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
sudo ppa-purge ppa:elementary-os/daily

Also, you can remove unneeded packages (this is not required, but the packages are not needed when using a stable repository):

sudo apt-get purge apport apport-gtk apport-hooks-elementary apport-symptoms elementary-os-prerelease elementaryos-report-problem-dockitem evolution-data-server-google2 evolution-data-server-outlook evolution-data-server-pantheon-online-accounts fonts-opendyslexic gsignond gsignond-extension-pantheon gsignond-plugin-lastfm gsignond-plugin-oauth libaccounts-glib0 libgsignon-glib1 libgsignond-common0 libpantheon-online-accounts0 pantheon-online-accounts-plugin-lastfm python3-apport python3-problem-report screenshot-tool switchboard-plug-a11y switchboard-plug-mouse-touchpad switchboard-plug-networking switchboard-plug-parental-controls

Then reboot.

In order to avoid problems, before you perform these commands, I recommend to use TimeShift.
