Comment 1 Orion Poplawski 2014-07-25 21:09:18 UTC
sddm takes about 15 seconds to start up, mainly in starting the greeter


Greeter session started successfully


Message received from greeter: Connect

I at first thought sddm should not try to enumerate all users' face icons at startup, but I'm not sure that that is the hangup.

For comparison, kdm seems to take about 2 seconds to startup.

It might be a bit faster, but there is still a noticeable period with a black screen.

Comment 8 Martin Bříza 2014-10-09 11:34:29 UTC
At least from my testing, startup of the greeter itself is WAY faster. Before the update, I got about 20 seconds to get some display. Currently, it's under one second which occurs in the period between plymouth exiting and sddm-greeter starting. In the future, this will be hidden by reusing plymouth's output in the meantime.

Comment 9 Valerio De Angelis 2014-10-10 22:48:36 UTC
Yeah, installed and tested now the version sddm-0.9.0-2.20141007git6a28c29b.fc20.
It's really fast, one second at the maximum.

Comment 12 Roderick Johnstone 2015-06-16 16:12:17 UTC
I'm seeing sddm slow to display login screen on F22 with sddm-0.10.0-4.fc22.x86_64. Maybe a 20-30 sec delay after logout before getting the login screen. I have homes on nfs mounts and currently one is unavailable.

I assume the F21 package patch is in the F22 package.

Suggestions on how to diagnose would be welcome.
