Hi :)
In Ubuntu i try to use "The Janitor" occasionally or from the grub-boot-menu choose "recovery mode" 
and then "Clear some space".  I think some other distros offer that 2nd option but i don#'t know 
how to or even if i would want to risk trying the janitor in other distros.  
Regards from
Tom :)

       CCleaner is not necessarily a registry cleaner ... it can do that;
but it mainly is used to clean out the caches.

       And there are more than this one listed on this site - Gizmo's
Freeware Utilities <>.

I run Ubuntu. As I understand it, Linux (including Ubuntu) doesn't use a
registry, therefore you don't need to have a registry cleaner.

me a few times -
             my solution is to shut it down -> clear out the caches
is good] -> re-start the computer;
                 when it re-starts, OO/LO works great again.

         One of the problems with OO/LO is its immense size; if there
some way to reduce its size then this might not occur, but then it might
not be as good a program as it is  ;-)

         Mine is not caused by 'calling home or anywhere' since my
only allows 'cookies', etc. which I accept and only at the time I accept
them; in fact, each time I've tested my machine, it's invisible to these
robotic eyes  :-)

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
LO document. The pause only occurs during startup.

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