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.

document through a file manager
- with Java RE option on or off

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

If an update option of Daily is checked, would this account for the network connection? Or, might it be a bug in that every time LO is opened it checks for an update instead of once a day? If so, would unchecking "Check for updates automatically" stop this?


Hi Dan,

I don't know. These instructions go back to the first release of LibreOffice when it opened initially really slowly for me. If I recall correctly, they were originally for open office. I found them on the Internet. It was essential for LibreOffice 3.3x and 3.4x for me. I've seen less difference in 3.5x. I've only updated LibreOffice when a new version is out, such as to
