LO s-LO-w install, painfully

Submitted by DustWin on February 8, 2011 - 10:48am

On Win XP Pro 3GHz 2GB Ram, decent computer. BUT is LO really missing the 's' infront and 'w' at the end? so far nothing else running but install and now IE to write this, 1 hour 40 mins just to install and still have about 25% more to install to complete. s-LO-w s-LO-w s-LO-w! OOo still seems open enough to me, and talk about LO running s-LO-w portably, dont think I will be making the switch. Terribly s-LO-w. Has anyone at portable apps asked Oracle if 3.3 could be made portable? right now LO = s-LO-w and not worth using being like 15% freer/open then OOo.

Ooo to LibreOffice

Submitted by chrizio on February 1, 2011 - 3:09pm

OOo Portable installed on pen drive.
With introduction of LibreOffice the
doesn't seem to maintain OOo.
I have an impression, if I want to have the newest version,
here is 3.3.0, I need to switch from OOo to Libre.

How is the best procedure for changing my OOo Portable 3.2.0
to Libre 3.3.0?

Libre Office in Spanish or Catalan?

Submitted by Hemin on February 1, 2011 - 5:24am


It's strange that Libre Office don't have Spanish included on the available languages. It's because the Libre Office don't support Spanish yet, or this portable version is compiled without Spanish? (I prefer Catalan but its less common!).

"LibreOffice Portable is a multilingual package that includes support for Czech, Chinese (Simplifed and Traditional), Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Korean, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese and Russian."

speed , unit , menu

I installed LOP on 4 gb usb flash.


Is there anythingelse I can do to make LOP run faster?

I have done these:

The JavaRE is UNchecked

Memory> Undo> Step is 20

Memory> Graphic Cache> Use for LOP is 128 mb
Memory> Graphic Cache> Memory per object 20 mb

Cache for inserted object> Number of Objects> 20


For LOP-Writer the Measurement Unit is Millimeter. But, Why the value can not be set to, say, exactly 5 mm ?


The unavilable menu is light green. Can it be changed to other colour, say, dark gray ? Or, is it only on my computer?

How much slower is LibreOffice Portable...

Submitted by saronno on January 31, 2011 - 2:11pm

...compared to the installed one (in a Windows 32 or x64 environment)?

I suppose the installed version is faster (at least when starting up), otherwise what would be the advantage in installing? :]

Anyway, I'd like to know for sure whether there is an actual technical reason for that and also, in case there is, how much is the... price of portability in terms of performance.
Supposing, obviously, that both the installed and portable versions run from the same local hard disk.

LOP Calc v3.3.0 german: Problem: format a cell for a date

Submitted by knipsmoped on January 31, 2011 - 1:45pm

I tested LibreOffice Calc Portable 3.3.0. When I started LOP Calc i got a info to install JRE. But there is Java 6 Update 23 on my system (no portable)!
If a cell is formated for a date in "TT.MM.JJ" format (like "31.12.10") the date is not displayed correctly. It is displayed as "TT.12.JJ". If I change the format to "DD.MM.YY" it displays correctly, but this "user-defined format" is not available in the list of date formats.
With the installed version of LibreOffice the date is displays correctly. So I think it is only a problem of the portable version.
Have anyone a idea?
