I installed Ubuntu on a brand new computer and installed compiz, cairo dock, etc. I also made my unity launcher smaller. Now, after just a few days Ubuntu needs a long time to load after I logged in and also has a horrible boot time.

How can I change this?

I have already reset Unity and the time after the login was due to zero but I don't want such a big launcher. Here is a picture of bootchart:


Thank you so much for your help!
