After running Loki for about a week with little problem, I am getting a weird problem. I boot and the Loki boots perfectly and fast it gets me to the sign in screen I sign in with no problem, but it then takes a full three minutes to get to a workable screen, a screen where I can actually do anything its just stays with the background image and no links This happened a couple of days ago when I updated using the terminal, maybe its related to that maybe not. My machine , is an AMD 645 64 bits running a Loki 64 Bit. Audio and video works so I don't think its a card or graphic issue. Its not a black scree its the same background image as the sign in screen. after three minutes it gets to the regular desktop and it works fine from there.

  • You should read the last lines of file /var/log/syslog to see if you can find anything strange there. You can do it from the GUI or tail /var/log/syslog. Opening a terminal with Ctrl+Alt+F2 (before entering your password in GUI) logging in terminal and using top can also help. Afterwards come back to GUI with CTRL+ALT+F7 enter your password in GUI and come back again to terminal with CTRL+ALT+F2 to see if you can determine the cause of this problem. You can alternate between GUI and terminal. NOTE: I use F2 but you can use F3, F4... Oct 22 '16 at 23:12

  • use systemd-analyze critical-chain to see what is causing this slow boot. If you need more info you can use systemd-analyze plot >boot , it'll create a boot.svg file inside your home folder that you can open with your browser. In that file you can see what is taking so long to boot.
