@trytip Thanks for providing a way to troubleshoot. From the systemd-analyze blame I was able to figure out 2 drives were not connected to the system but systemd was trying to automount it. I have lines in fstab such as noauto,x-systemd.automount,x-systemd.device-timeout=20…so booting is quicker. Normally, without the fstab options I would be able to tell during boot that the 2 drives are waiting to get mounted. Look like all is back to normal now after connecting the drives.
some lines from .xsession-errors…
A lot of this------Cinnamon warning: Log level 128: posix_spawn avoided (fd close requested) and this
Cairo.Surface is leaking, programmer is missing a call to Dispose
What are the above two supposed to mean? Just curious…
Thanks again for your helpful tips to fix the issue.

The desktop takes close to 2 min to appear, desktop icons/conky take additional ~2 mins to appear after boot. Nemo takes really long to open. Any help in troubleshooting is appreciated.
@joekamprad it looks like linux-lts version is 188.8.131.52-1 and nvidia-lts depends on 4.14.67…I think I am pretty sure this is why the display is not starting on linux-lts kernel? How do I fix it? Would removing nvidia, nvidia-lts and installing nvidia-dkms fix it?
when i first ran the shell script it spit out the log.txt…it looked like lightdm service was not getting started…so i disabled it, installed gdm, enabled it and rebooted. The boot screen did not go past " [ok] reached graphical Target. So I tty2 and re-ran the script the log file is called log2.txt…looks like xserver failed…https://ptpb.pw/92Gy
