Symptom

You want to speed up the launch of OpenOffice applications.

Cause

You want to speed up the launch of OpenOffice applications.

Solution

If you use OpenOffice a lot, you might want it to start a bit faster.

To get this, open the Startup Manager, click System > Preferences > Startup Applications and add a new entry. In the Command field type openoffice -nodefault -nologo. Then reboot.

This will cause OpenOffice to be cached when the Gnome desktop starts up, so starting any OpenOffice application in the future will happen in a split second. Effectively, you're moving the OpenOffice.org startup delay to initial boot-up, but you will barely notice it.
