Ubuntu :: Open Office - Edit A Document It Freezes For Up Five Minutes Before Allowing To Continue
Apr 27, 2011
my open office is experiancing some problems. 1.) sometimes when I go to edit a document it freezes for up five minutes before allowing me to continue. 2.) it isn't allowing me to save any new documents or overwrite existing ones. 3.) it's taking an EXTREMELY lone time to load current documents up to an hour or sometimes not at all.
When I open an open office document from an NFS share it always opens as readonly. This was a problem I had on Arch linux and the fix was to change the locking options in the soffice script but I've tried that fix here and it doesn't work. I've seen a lot of discussions but they all go back to changing the locking options in soffice, has anyone got any alternative fixes or one that definitely works with locking?
I just recently upgraded my Fedora 6 to Fedora 10 on a brand new laptop. Unfortunately, everytime I try to print the apps freeze up. For example, I was trying to print a document out from Open Office and I chose FILE->PRINT. The print dialog box pops up but it remains grey and doesnt do anything.
the open office deamon (sOffice.bin) takes 100% CPU load forever.
We are using Open Office 2.6.3 on a virtual machine running debian squeeze 2.6.32-5-amd64
We found out that this appears only with our test document, other documents can be converted without problem. But how can we find out what's wrong with our document. How can we enable traces/loggin o the sOffice.bin process?
I wrote a short story about using computers using Open Office. I saved a copy to my usb drive. When I tried to open it again it was all garbled code. One line of text said: must run under Win32. I can't find Win32 and I cant read my story now. How do I run this thing in Win 32? What does that mean? Do I open Win32 first then Open Office. Or the other way around. Anybody out there know? eeepc900 xandros
I'm running Open Office 3.2.0. Does anybody know how to change the background color of an entire Open Office document? I know that you can change the background of a page in the Format >> Page menu, but this does not change the color of the page area inside the margins. Normally it wouldn't make much sense to change the background color when it just gets print to a page anyway. But I actually wanted to export the document to PDF, and was thinking it would make the PDF look better if I could pick the BG color.
am using slackware 13 and want to make Open Officeriter default when I click on a document. Currently when I click on doc it opens kwrite. Similarly when I click on an audio file it opens Gxine. I prefer MPlayer.
When the custom animations added to my presentation exceeds an amount and i run the preview, my computer freezes. I have never had such problem with microsoft's office. I have open office 3.2 on ubuntu 10.04. my system has 4GB of of ram, core i5 430m cpu with integrated intel graphics. is this phenomenon natural? is it duo to my system limitations or it's an open office bug? what could i do now?
My Open Office freezes when I try to save over a network to Win 7 Home Premium. I'm running fedora 14 with win 7 mount via mount.cifs. I have full rw access to windows via dolphin. Does anyone have a solution?UPDATE:this is an official bug.[URL]if anyone has a work around,but every work around I've seen in forums don't work.
I have both installed, but since LO is going to be the way Ubuntu goes for office applications, can I easily have my system setup for native LO? Native being if I double clock on a .doc file it will start up LO's Write program instead of OO.Will just removing OO achieve this or is there an easier way? I looked for file associations and didn't find it.
Sometime ago I realized my Open Office had changed, I don't remember having done anything in particular but today it isn't the regular open office but what I believe is a KDE version or idk. The theme changed and instead of regular menus I get "window" menus, in the sense that they get effects as regular windows. It's hard to explain it.
I tried uninstalling it and installing open office and also in the soft center open office is more than once, but I tried the different versions and I still get the same problem.
I'm trying to replace an office file server. I would like to avoid just another samba share.
I'm looking for a document repository, a bit more functionality than a plain samba share and very cross-platform.
I've looked a couple minutes at dspace, but that seems like a lot of work just configuring it. Dropbox would be fine except that they only have up to 100g, and it's off-site.
This is NOT for unauthenticated public use.
Here are some features I have in mind:
1. Web front end. 2. Any file format from a one-line text document to a Microsoft Word document to an ISO of a blu-ray disk to a very large database backup, binary or text. 3. Cross-platform clients, mostly Mac. 4. Authenticated via centralized one-login server or maybe by a key such as an SSH public key. 5. Searchable by terms, name or content if the type is appropriate. 6. Pass in the URL for an object and have the server download it. 7. Stores files in native format so if the app breaks I can just get the files.
I have just installed ubuntu on my second laptop. However, this one is giving me some grief. After several minutes, it completely locks up. No mouse, keyboard, anything. Just frozen solid. I had some issues installing it, and got around them by checking something like "nolacpi" and "noacpi" with the live cd, but now I don't know how to re enable those options. I'm quite computer savvy, but am still learning how linux works. For refrence, this is the system specs:
HP Pavilion Zx5000 Pentium 4 3.06GHz ATI Mobility Radeon 9200 GPU 1GB RAM 60GB IDE Hard drive
As of this morning I cannot open pdf's by clicking on them in firefox. I can download them and open them from the download window or even from the folder they are saved to, but not from the browser. Evince opens and says: Unable to open document Error opening file: No such file or directory.
I don't know if I'm doing something wrong but I've been running Ubuntu or a variant for about a year now and suddenly every now and then one or two of my documents (open office or pdfs) have no information and they won't open.
I'm having sporadic issues with the openoffice.org program. Sometimes, power point presentations will crash the program and then I can't open any open office programs without rebooting the computer. The problem seems to be just with powerpoint files and I'm not sure what the issue could be.
i had previously installed Ubuntu 9.10 (dual booting with Windows XP) whichgave me errors of "Hard Disk Bad Sectors" and then would freeze my PC leaving me with no other option than Re-Booting..[ignoring the error as a BUG) so on advice of other ubuntu users.i tried Ubuntu10.04.
On installing Ubuntu 10.04 it showing the same problem as that before.(freezing few minutes after the login page) and again dual booted with Windows XP.
i don't suspect a hard ware problem because my Windows XP works perfectly fine with the Same hard ware.

PS:its the 8th time i have installed Ubuntu ..so its really frustrating .
I am on ubuntu 11.04 and have had it since 10.10. For some reason when I am working on something whether it be on internet or listening to music after about 45 minutes of working ubuntu completely freezes and I cant do anything. Can someone please help me I really love ubuntu I just dont no any code so I tried researching the subject but dont understand the lingo and code.
I am having this problem with F 10. First I get the infamous message: Could not detect stabilization, waiting 10 seconds. at the beginning of the booting process. then after I initiate startx, I use gnome, all works fine and only for few minutes and the system freezes. At first the mouse freezes, then after 30 seconds or so, the mouse's cursor can move but clicks are ineffective, not even Ctrl+Alt+Backspace, or Ctrl+Alt+Del. I have to do hard reset.
I installed Open Office 4 on Debian 8 but when I run the program I get this error message.
root@localhost:/home/paul# openoffice4 No protocol specified No protocol specified /opt/openoffice4/program/soffice.bin X11 error: Can't open display: Set DISPLAY environment variable, use -display option or check permissions of your X-Server (See "man X" resp. "man xhost" for details)
Open Office works fine when I run the command "startx" in the Konsole but so far I haven't been able to configure it.
I cant open xls files in a shared folder using open office 3.1. Its all started when i install a new open office version. when im using open office 3.0.8 i can open all the files but now i cant even open it. Its always display untitled documents.
After logging into fedora about 5 minutes into the session everything except the mouse freezes on the screen. There is nothing that works. A hard reboot is done and the same thing happens after logging in. The system use to work fine up until a few weeks ago. I suspect it may be an yum update.
I have installed Fedora 12 on a brand new pc, quad core, 4 GB RAM. Within 1-2 minutes after I log in, the computer stops responding. I can move the mouse and click on, but it is too slow, and the cursor drags.
I've been unable to resolve this problem for the past weeks and have come as far as I can trying to fix it on my own. I have a fresh install of 11.04 on a Shuttle ST20G5 with a Radeon Xpress 200g chipset. After 5-10 minutes of usage in X, it freezes solid (no response to alt-sysreq) and displays a white screen (sometimes with a pattern). I believe it's a kernel issue.
Things I've tried but still resulted in crashes:
- Switching to VESA graphics - Running failsafe / Recovery Console X - Downgrading X server to 2.09 - Running latest X server via ppa (at least, I think I did this. Maybe I didn't) - Upgrading kernel to 2.6.39-0 via ppa - Running the live cd
I get no warnings or errors of note in xsession-errors or kern.log
I have not been able to catch the error or obtain any troubleshooting info. When it crashes, it just crashes.
