Stop Skype from autoloading

As Lubuntu is aimed at low powered systems,  there is no reason why it can’t be used on more powerful systems.

I have had skype autoloading for a while now and it takes ages,  adding a good 20 seconds or so it seems to the ready to use time after logging in.

if you look in.

~/.config/autostart.

You should find the skype icon in there,  delete this and it will stop it loading at start up.

Thanks to the Lubuntu-mailing list people for this as they have been helping me with various issues recently.

The following may be linked to this,  the second one is clearly a repeat of the above but the global one should be useful too.

Lubuntu global start up applications: /etc/xdg/lxsession/Lubuntu/autostart.

Lubuntu local start up applications: ~/.config/autostart.

 

CURRENT BOOT TIME NOTES

I have now got my boot time down to 1 min 5 seconds,  however this is

boot to logjn

stop stopwatch

type password

press enter / login and restart stopwatch,

1 min 5 seconds to me is a long long time, but take in to account that my system has been running for a few years,  started out with ubuntu,  also seems to have to have other things running which are not needed.   I am sure it can be reduced further.
