Kde booting slow

[prince@Bot ~]$ systemd-analyze
Startup finished in 4.127s (kernel) + 21.466s (userspace) = 25.593s
graphical.target reached after 21.465s in userspace

But it 1 minutes and 50 second to boot.

But sum of these is more than 25 seconds as it shows in running command systemd-analyze

This is a repeating KDE topic in the Manjaro forum. Some will say that you have to screw KDE until the point of mutilation, others recommend another desktop right away. Let’s start now and please show us your

inxi -Fz

so we know what we are dealing with.

Almost 45sec is not slow. Judging from the times of system-analyze I would say it is a spinning disk. After 45sec SDDM and KDE start, so those are not count here.

1 min 50 sec is quite normal for a spinning disk.

KDE does boot a little slower on spinning disks due to many small files it has to load, but even your timing isn’t slow. Sure compared to even SATA3 SSD it’s way slower, but SATA3 SSD is already 5-6 times faster than typical HDD:

those loop devices are certainly killing, though. 5 seconds for each? eww…

Wie bitte? Ich schreibe jetzt mal in Deutsch, damit das unter uns bleibt :grinning:.
Fast 22 Sekunden bis zur grafischen Oberfläche! Das schafft selbst meine 11 Jahre alte Möhre mit SSD und XFCE in unter 6 Sekunden. Klar, was danach noch abläuft, ist abhängig von den gestarteten Diensten. Also: Die Hardware Konfiguration des TO mal zeigen und dann schauen, wo man am besten den Hebel ansetzen kann. Damit leben oder das so zu akzeptieren muss man absolut nicht, zumal wir auch nicht wissen, ob sich die Sache um eine HDD dreht…

Yepp it is spinning disk… xD Exchange it with a SSD and you will have a faster boot time.

For example these ones:

Are created probably by snapd. So removing snapd will result in a faster boot.

i have disable snapd.
ok i will remove it.
