I am Using Ubuntu 13.10 i386 Desktop. After entering password, screen becomes black for more than 10 Seconds [from 10 to 30 Seconds] to load Unity.

I have reset my user account and reboot PC but login delay remains the same.

Which default startup items should be removed?

What do you call "Usual Ubuntu 13.10"? The load speed depends on your PC specs, file system and compatibility. In some cases 10 seconds is not bad at all. – Lucio Apr 3 '14 at 19:23
@Lucio 10Secs is not bad but in my case it speds more then that [it is login delay not boot delay!] – Sagar Panchal Apr 3 '14 at 19:41
I am using 13.10 for 3 months it was taking about 2-3 Seconds this is first day that it makes delay to login!! – Sagar Panchal Apr 3 '14 at 19:44
Have you installed a new application on that last days? – Lucio Apr 3 '14 at 19:45
There you go. That is the reason of why it's taking more than usual. Choice, cinnamon vs performance. – Lucio Apr 4 '14 at 3:25
