No Openoffice quickstarter option 5.8 SOHO
« on: May 08, 2008, 02:41:18 pm »
I have been using SOHO since it came out and have only one complaint (that not with Vector) about openoffice. I have been trying to improve the open time for openoffice and want to set the quickstarter. However, when I go to options>memory, I find the check box grayed out. This is true for both root and user.

I have tried a re-install but that didn't help. This feature works in other distros so I am thinking it should be available in Vector as well. Can anyone give me some help?

Thx

It is not available for me either using VL5.9 Gold with OpenOffice v2.3.1. The quickstarter option by the way, is a bit of a joke, because what actually happens is the system pre-loads some libraries just after desktop environment bootup, which takes the same amount of time as the first boot loading OO when it loads its libraries so instead of waiting during the OO boot you are waiting after desktop open boot. It also consumes RAM ,which is unnecessary if you don't actually use OO during that session. A bit of a gimick really! ;-)
