Open office very VERY slow for some users


Hi again all.

I'm running OOo 1.1.0 on a Mdk10 box and have notices a slow degradation in preformance on OOo. It used to be that the program would start in about 5 - 10 seconds, now it takes 3 - 5 minutes just to load. Then another 1 - 2 minutes to open a file, which I think is crazy. At first I thought it was something on my system, so I checked the processes running and saw nothing unusual. Then my wife logged into her account and used OOo. It loaded in the same 5 - 10 secs I remember. This leads me to believe there's some goofy startup log file or script that's slowing ME down, but I can't find anything about it on google or here.

Anybody else have this problem or know how to fix it?

Thanks

I think I remember something about Ooo 1.1.0 : check the pspfontcache file in your ~/.OpenOffice directory. On Ooo 1.1.0 this file tends to grow and if it's larger than 50kb, it may be the reason Ooo takes a long time to launch. If so, just delete it then run again OpenOffice which will create a new clean pspfontcache. Then set the file attribute to readonly so the file won't grow again.
Or upgrade to a more recent version : they work fine and faster and there's no problem with pspfontcache.
