lightdm startup delay in 20.04

Asked by Sterling Butters on 2020-08-20

I have had this issue for a long time where, once I login, all I can see (for at least a minute) is the wallpaper and mouse. Eventually the rest of the desktop environment is loaded and everything is good to go. If I log out and back in, I don't have the same issue I do at startup.

I have tried many things including installation of haveged and also trying to disable the lightdm.service and startx'ing (however I was never able to even successfully disable the service). I also read somewhere that it might not actually be lightdm but rather accountsservice that is the source of the problem. And in fact I can see some authentication warnings in the journalctl. Looking at the lightdm log, there don't appear to be any significant gaps in the log entry timestamps like people who have posted in other forums.
