I’ve been deploying LO 18.104.22.168 on windows machines. When on older netbooks with Atom processors, the first opening per session is painfully slow - some 20 seconds on some machines, despite the preloader.
This is a problem I’d like to remedy, and am looking for suggestions. So far I have turned on the preloader, and that generally helps quite a bit. I also have disabled Java and the experimental features, such as macro recording, on the theory that they take resources. I’m still getting large delays on some systems. Today I got one on an Atom N270 running XP on 1GB RAM. This generally is a pretty speedy system for its configuration, and I’d like to do better.
Once start center is open, opening a blank Writer or Calc document takes a little time - more than I would like, but not too bad.
Is there any way to only install the most often used components of LO - Writer, Calc, Impress - and would doing so speed up the initial opening of the Start Center? (Subsequent openings are very fast, the way I would like it to be, so it must be a question of loading something into RAM.) Or any other ideas?
