I run xubuntu 12.10 on a HP netbook N455. Before the upgrade a few days ago my xubuntu was responsive at boot after 58 seconds - the desktop showed up a few seconds earlier. Now, after the upgrade to 12.10 my desktop is responsive after about 110 seconds, i.e., 1 minute 45 seconds.
The whole point of having xubuntu on my netbook seemed to have vanished. I checked the startup apps but the list is the same as before the upgrade. How can I tell why booting takes so long? Is 12.10 supposed to be so much slower?
