[Mint 16 cinnamon ] login delay problem..

Post by M1cha3lK »

Hi,

On my newly installed mint 16 cinnamon 64 bit I noticed an annoying delay (25-30s) after entering the password until the GUI show up.

Anyone else having the same problem?

If I login "manually" on the console (i.e. not mdm) and startx then the GUI shows up immediately.

Checking my .xsession-errors:

Code: Select all

/etc/mdm/Xsession: Beginning session setup...

Should I disable something? Any hints?

Thanks in advance,

After further investigation I noticed that unplugging my webcam "Microsoft LifeCam Cinema" speeds up the login process substantially..

Is it cinnamon/mdm that scans for my webcam after login? (I can see the LED on the camera gets activated... Does it film me during login? :roll: )

Any way to prevent (speed up) the scan during login?

Have you had any success fixing this - I have the same issue and cant seem to figure out what it is.
I did install the linux on another machine with different hardware setup, I wonder if it scans and makes adjustments to the new hardware everytime when logging in.

It's something upstream that goes 'Oooh, a webcam, I will (do something that takes a while)', because it's not Mint-specific and happens with Xubuntu, for example.

Someone probably thinks logging in via facial recognition is a good idea.
