With the upgrade to 14.04, my LibreOffice launches became noticeably glitchy. With LibO 18.104.22.168, the menu bars would overlap for about 10secs, then the whole app would "grey out" for another 10secs or so. Subsequent launches were better, but the spinner would keep spinning for about 10secs+ after LibO opened.
It wasn't clear whether this was a LibO issue, or Ubuntu, since the two upgrades came at the same moment. The issue was partially resolved in an AskLibreOffice Q&A by enabling "quick start".
Today I got the LibreOffice 22.214.171.124 update, and the first-time launch is very quick, but the lingering "busy pointer"/spinner issue continues. (Another user has posted a video of this behaviour on YouTube.)
Has anyone else experienced this behaviour? Any explanations or resolutions? Many thanks!
