Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've upgraded recently (13.10 -> 14.04).

uname -r


The thing that annoy me is the time for dropping into desktop, it take more than 10 seconds!

Is this problem related to lightDM?

However, can it be solve: a little fast?

Perhaps you have too many programs set to automatically start each new session. askubuntu.com/questions/48321/… –  Alex Apr 20 '14 at 20:58
I am having the same problem. more than 10 seconds for the desktop to appear (and actually no desktop after backup restore). ON top of that the key board is locked when another process is pending action from myself. Example: a movie is running on totem but the screen is locked. I then can't type my password! It is not an upgrade but a full new setup. Upgrade didn't work at all. –  Gilles Apr 24 '14 at 1:56
