Hi Robert,

This has worked for me in all recent versions of Ubuntu:

In terminal, do gksudo gedit /etc/hosts
Add line as shown below for, for instance, galaxy localhost galaxy.(none) below localhost galaxy
4) and add a line so it looks like this: localhost galaxy galaxy localhost galaxy.(none)
5) save
6) now Writer and Calc open fast when the network connection is attached.

For anyone new reading this. replace "galaxy" with whatever you have named your computer.

I'm running LibreOffice 3.4.6 OOO340m1 (Build:602) on Debian Squeeze.

The progress bar on the splash screen stops part-way during startup for about 10 seconds. During 
this time LO sends a request of some sort over the network connection (lights flash on router) 
every 2 seconds, 5 times in all. LO then completes startup.

This happens
- with the splash screen turned off in /etc/libreoffice/sofficerc (the pause and network requesting 
still happen)
- when launching LO by itself, or when opening a Writer or other LO document through a file manager
- with Java RE option on or off

With an LO document already open, there is no pause when opening a second LO document. The pause 
only occurs during startup.

How to stop LO from sending requests over the network on startup, so that it opens without the 
10-second pause?
