Recently the time of login to the desktop from login screen has increased by 10 times. I tried to find out the reason and found that the following errors popup in the .xsession-errors file

init: update-notifier-crash (/var/crash/open-vm-tools-dkms.0.crash) main process (2472) terminated with status 127
init: update-notifier-crash (/var/crash/_usr_bin_gnome-panel.1000.crash) main process (2476) terminated with status 127
init: update-notifier-crash (/var/crash/_usr_bin_shutter.1000.crash) main process (2477) terminated with status 127
init: update-notifier-crash (/var/crash/_usr_lib_gnome-settings-daemon_gnome-settings-daemon.1000.crash) main process (2479) terminated with status 127
init: update-notifier-crash (/var/crash/_usr_lib_gnome-user-share_gnome-user-share.1000.crash) main process (2481) terminated with status 127
init: update-notifier-crash (/var/crash/_usr_lib_x86_64-linux-gnu_hud_hud-service.1000.crash) main process (2482) terminated with status 127
init: update-notifier-crash (/var/crash/_usr_lib_x86_64-linux-gnu_qt5_bin_qmlscene.1000.crash) main process (2483) terminated with status 127

For starters, I do not have open-vm-tools installed. I have shutter, but it runs fine. I have no idea how to fix the rest of the errors.

Run $ sudo rm /var/crash/* That seems to speed up the login process. Maybe update-notifier-crash tries to parse these files???

There are a number of other questions discussing Ubuntu error reporting:

Getting "System program problem detected" pops up regularly after upgrade

Why is the file /var/crash/_usr_lib_empathy_empathy-chat.1000.upload empty?
