I am using fedora-22 kde with windows dual boot.
When I select fedora from boot menu it takes upto 20sec to boot.

I don't know if there are some programs affecting the boot time.

when I run the following command


It shows the following result:

Startup finished in 4.137s (firmware) + 6.146s (loader) + 953ms (kernel) + 6.865s (initrd) + 51.146s (userspace) = 1min 9.248s

How can I make booting as faster as windows?

And the command

$ systemd-analyze plot

results a XML file you can findhere


You can use the other command line options of systemd-analyze to get a better overview about what delays your boot. Your command showed that most of the time is eaten up by userspace processes. Therefore I recommend investigating this further.

Take a look at

systemd-analyze blame


systemd-analyze plot

The first one will give you a per process list of the delay, the second one will draw a nice graph.

This article is not specifically for Ubuntu but should also work for you and describes the procedure very well
