recently I moved from OpenOffice to LibreOffice on my openSuSE 11.3 linux
Libreoffice itself  starts fast on this system which has 8GB of memory

What I noticed is that opening an existing document eg a spreadsheet
(.ods) takes a very long time. For a spreadsheet that has only 20 lines
(filesize, 18.5 Kbyte), with LibreOffice already running, take about 6
seconds until the document is visible. During the 6 seconds the new
opened window is simply grey.

If I close the docuement without leaving LibreOffice and the reopen it
again its loaded really fast and then also other docuemnts load fast (<
1sec). So it seems that when the first docuement is loaded something
else happens that take quite a long time. When I reastart Libreoffice
and open the docuement once again, it again takes 6 sec to open it .

This does not only happen with a single special document but with each
and every docment I try to open. In Openoffice the load time for such a
small spreadsheet was not even one second.

Any ideas what might be the cause for this delay?

Have a nice day

Hi Rainer

I had a similar, if not the same issue, on my openSUSE 11.3 64Bit install.
I use KDE and had not installed the libreofice-gnome extensions for this
reason. Having been advised to remove my libreoffice profile, which did
nothing, I decided to install the gnome extension anyway and for me this
resolved the issue. Perhaps it will for you too. I install libreoffice
from the stable repository at:



Hi Dave,

thank you for the hint. I realized that I still had libreoffice from 11.3
unstable repos installed.  libreoffice-gnome was installed as well.

I first uninstalled this version and tried the orginal one from (rpm's packed in tgz archives). This one worked fine so next
I tried the stable opensuse repos, the URL you gave above. And this one
fine as well. So  probably  my use of the unstable repos was to blame for my

Hi Rainer,

I'm glad you got it resolved. LibreOffice is shaping up very well in my 
opinion, the devs are doing an excellent job.

Best regards
