 Open Office starts up slowly up.


Open Office starts slowly in the first double-click a document solution below. (Thanks to @ Bloom).

Cause of the problem: OOo tries the computer name on the network using DNS to resolve. It tries the construction completely wrong computer name. (None) off. And it gives all possible

domain combinations thus try, he sits for each of these combinations waiting for a timeout. This leads to a total of over one half to one minute (depending on PC to PC).

Solution: Add the name wrong combination OOo want to try to your local host list.
Code:

gksudo gedit /etc/hosts

This normally starts with:
Code:

127.0.0.1 localhost
127.0.1.1 hostname
...

where "hostname" your chosen name of your PC or notebook.

Add this entry under the following line:
Code:

Hostname 127.0.0.1 localhost hostname. (None)

Save this. Now when you double-click on a document while OOo is not loaded, he will be ready within seconds of work!
With that name. "(None) 'behind this is actually a syntax error: there is no such signs may occur in domain names. But since OOo she tries to call before he loses any combination of time and try it all together is so annoying long. Joost can also see why an office suite at all to perform a DNS resolving, but he does so. And by the erroneous name to our hosts file to add, we are satisfied it without all those timeouts.
So if you are bothering you, this is the solution.

Alright this has clearly been translated, let me clarify

Input this into your terminal:

gksudo gedit /etc/hosts


Look for this:
Code:

127.0.0.1 localhost
127.0.1.1 hostname
...

"hostname" is the chosen name of your PC or notebook.

Add this entry under the the 127.0.1.1 hostname line:

(put your hostname here) 127.0.0.1 localhost (put your host name here). (None)

Copy and paste your hostname into the respective spots making sure to not delete the spaces. Don't forget the period at the end and to keep the "(None)" section. Save the document, now Open Office should start up instantly! Enjoy.

I am sorry but I could not follow these instructions...

Where in /etc/hosts should I put the new line?
What should I write in the new line?

Excellent. This seemingly works really well for all parts of the office suite: writer, calc, impress and base.

@Bloom: How did you come up with this solution?

Another good tip, thank you.

After you save the file, Open Office works as advertised :)
