HOWTO accelerate the speed of OpenOffice
« on: August 24, 2006, 02:48:48 am »

hi,

i tried this on various linux-distris too...and it always worked

in fact, i have always doubled the speed (especially open new applications...)

so here it is:

openoffice-writer>options>memory..memory for openoffice (adjust from 8 to 64mb)
memory per object (adjust to 8mb)
deactivate java in openoffice(you only will lost some minor tasks in openoffice)

by the way..i have 256 ram in my box.
if you have only 64 mb ram, then it wont be a good idea to reconfigure this settings.(try for yourself)

but my box is always speedier afterwards....and without any glitches

so, feedback would be grateful...

greets g√ľnter

i suggest a real method to increase performance of OpenOffice. the only way out is DOCK TO TRAY. by using kdocker or alltray.

but there is a difficulty. in manual mode (when you by using mouse indicates window) kdocker succesfully kick openoffice window to tray, but through command line it did not work by default. the solution is to define window ID of opened OpenOffice window and transfer it to kdocker.

here is script that you need put in $HOME/.kde/Autostart/office-to-tray.sh


#!/bin/bash

/opt/openoffice.org2.4/program/scalc -norestore &

sleep 15

/usr/local/bin/kdocker -w `/usr/X11R6/bin/xwininfo -root -children -tree | /bin/grep "OpenOffice.org Calc" | awk '{ print $1 }'` &

/opt/openoffice.org2.4/program/swriter -norestore $HOME/.1.doc

sleep 5

/usr/local/bin/kdocker -w `/usr/X11R6/bin/xwininfo -root -children -tree | /bin/grep ".1 - OpenOffice.org Writer" | awk '{ print $1 }'` &

and you need put small simple .1.doc file to $HOME.

the result: celeron 1800,512Mb,FC4,KDE , xls file 450kb open for 5 seconds!
and if use icewm even 4 seconds:)

Wouldn't that be the same as the openoffice QuickStart feature ?
Not sure, just asking.
