I had not read the previous posts - removed from my email client.

Was the version of LO you were having problems with downloaded from LO's site or from Ubuntu's repository? I currently use version

I never use the repository version or the PPA version. I just download it from LO's site, every so often.

I run Ubuntu Mate 16.04. I stopped using Linux Mint since it was having problems seeing most of my printers attached to my home/office router. I started using Ubuntu in 2009 and have been using it for my default system[s] since then. I try other distros on my secondary systems, though.

For what it's worth, I just tried a Calc spreadsheet on the following OSs:

Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon running from a live USB session with LO 5.1.2.x

Puppy Linux (Tahr) running from a live USB session with LO 5.1.2.x

Neither exhibited the same slowness issue that I have with running
Ubuntu Mate. I'm beginning to think my problem isn't with LO as much as
it is with Ubuntu Mate.

When using Calc, I like to navigate across the cells using the arrow
keys on the keyboard. I'm finding when I do this on my Linux system, the
longer I'm in the spreadsheet, the slower my navigation becomes. After a
while, there's a large delay when I press one of the arrow keys.
Eventually, the spreadsheet becomes all but unusable. My spreadsheets
are not large; as spreadsheets go, they are quite simple. And, the
behavior doesn't immediately happen. When I first load a spreadsheet
file, the navigation is immediate. It slows down as I use the file, even
if all I'm doing is navigating with arrow keys.

I dual boot Windows 10 and Ubuntu Mate 14.04LTS. On the Windows 10 side
of things, I'm using LO 5.2.x and on the Linux side, I'm using LO

This behavior only happens on the Linux side of things.

Has anyone else experienced anything like this?
