How can I debug an issue with Xubuntu 12.04 (fresh install) which just waits idle after a login for about 30 seconds?
The login screen is delayed correctly. After login, I get my desktop background, but no panels or auto-starting apps.
It doesn't seem to be an authentication/pam issue, because I can login without delay at the console while the graphical session is still stuck. There's no disk or cpu activity and no obvious respawning of any process when I look at htop. There's nothing obviously wrong in
.xsession-errors. Most interesting errors:
openConnection: connect: No such file or directory cannot connect to brltty at :0 WARNING: gnome-keyring:: couldn't connect to: /tmp/keyring-wFn4VR/pkcs11: No such file or directory ... (polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1:2131): polkit-gnome-1-WARNING **: Failed to register client: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The nam e org.gnome.SessionManager was not provided by any .service files ** Message: applet now removed from the notification area ** Message: using fallback from indicator to GtkStatusIcon ...

(xfce4-indicator-plugin:2176): Indicator-Application-WARNING **: Unable to get application list: Operation was cancelled
Bootchart seems to end before I login, so it's not that helpful.
Where else can I look for information?
