I've recently installed Xfce and over the last few days I have had to wait a very long time to log out, restart or shutdown.
It takes more than 30 seconds to logout - sometimes more than a minute.
It wasn't taking that long a few days ago.
I'm using Arch 64 bit, with Xfce 4.10 from their repositories.
I'm using kdm as my desktop manager, KDE 4.9.2.
uname -a 3.6.4-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Oct 29 09:49:00 CET 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I expect it's something I've messed up rather than a bug, but how can I find out what's causing this?
Or how to fix it.
Something could be running on the background.
Check Settings>Session and Startup if there ain't anything that you don't need running or set to autostart and also play with the KDE services checkbox in the Advanced tab.
You can monitor things running with htop in another tty for instance.
Thanks for those suggestions.
I'll try both of those.
Trying to track down problems with htop is going to be pretty difficult though - there are so many processes and threads.
Still it's worth trying.
