- How to determine boot time? 4 answers
What command do I use to determine how long my actual boot time is? From the grub screen until all the start up processes are finished in the background. I ask because Launcher stays purple for at least another minute or so after I have desktop use. So, I wait until I see it change to the color that matches the theme in use before I begin my session.
The next logical step would be to analyse the boot time data, determine if there are errors, fix, and stream line it.
