Most times when I start LibreOffice on 22.214.171.124 (under Ubuntu 14.04), the application goes grey for 10+ seconds while the toolbars appear overlapped; then it clears and the application is launched.
This is very odd behaviour, and unlike the fast-opening LibO I used to enjoy. The problem is complicated, though, since the LibO version was updated at the same time as upgrading the OS to the current (14.04) version.
Are any other LibO users expeiencing this behaviour? I did a search for a relevant bug, but couldn’t spot this one. Help and/or comments appreciated!
Update - the “fix” below helps enormously, but still start-up feels glitchy. I still get intermittent “grey-outs” on launch (“warm” ones, after the app has already been run and closed), but I can’t discern a pattern. When it starts, it starts quickly - but sometimes … it doesn’t. Still interested in anecdotal comments of others using LibO on Ubuntu 14.04 especially. [2014.05.09]
