Why No Enable Quickstarter in 5.8 SOHO?
« on: May 25, 2008, 03:28:27 pm »
I want to try to speed up openoffice but found that the option to enable quickstarter is greyed out. Anyone know why? I have made memory changes that I have found on the net and this has helped however, 1st time start of OO is still very slow (up to 2 minutes) on my test machine (old hp with 256 M Ram, PIII running at 1 Ghz). Once opened, OO re-opens very quickly.

This is not a biggie but just something I am trying to figure out. I have tried Abiword and just don't like it.

Thx

I don't think it is available in Linux for most distros. Anyways, what happens is that it just loads the libraries at boot time, so your actual boot time is increased, rather than your OO load time, so you don't really save any time at all, in the end. KDocker for KDE will help, read this:
