Any suggestion?

What distribution are you using?

QuickStarter was at the origin of a rather nasty bug that prevented
shutting down/logging out as reported in this Ubuntu bug:

It's resolved now, but unless you're using LibO 3.5.0 or greater, you
won't have the fix. I can't say if that's the same for other non-Debian
derivatives, though.

What are your reasons for using QuickStarter in GNU/Linux?

If it's only for faster startup speed, remember memory is treated
different than Windows. Even in the slowest environments, once
LibreOffice has loaded once (any component: Writer, Calc, etc), the next
times the startup time improves a lot. You can use a workaround in
Ubuntu to accomplish this for first-time run and get that "oh, it loads
fast" *perception*, specially if you turn off the system often (which
negates the benefits of memory caching during a single session). I may
be oversimplifying a bit here, hoping the point comes across.

See this workaround, should work in other Debian derivatives too:

Other simple optimizations include using RAM as storage, mounting /tmp
in RAM, using SSD storage, etc. - with varying levels of care required
:) Don't do this unless you're running LibO 3.5.1 or greater or you may
hit this one too with worse results (data loss):
