Slow Libre Office file opening10 Oct 2015
If you are experiencing a several seconds delay while opening files with Libre Office (Open Office might be affected to) it might be the same issue I run into today.
It seems that during startup LO polls printers over CUPS daemon. If there is a problem with the network and configured printers are not reachable you will experience a several seconds delay with each file open. This will not affect opening a file in the already running instance of LO.
The current workaround I use is to disable CUPS
sudo systemctl stop org.cups.cupsd sudo systemctl disable org.cups.cupsd
… and start it only when I plan to do some printing and the printers are reachable:
sudo systemctl start org.cups.cupsd
