    You don't need it anymore. Cold start is now ~7-8 sec, and after that, it takes about ~2 sec to start OOo.

    It will probably end up in the PPA-Scribblers repository for Karmic before too much longer.

    https://launchpad.net/~openoffice-pkgs/+archive/ppa

    It takes Chris a few days to do the builds, and then they should be updated via the synaptic.

    Yes, I will try to get it in Lucid and into the ppa for Karmic once ooo-build and Debian have updated their build for the final release. That likely will be sometime mid next week.

    Thanks for this! Worked like a treat on 9.04 with the en-GB install.

    I tried to follow all these steps. When I clicked Applications>Office, openoffice wasn't there. I'm now installing it through the synaptic package manager.

    Update: I forgot to say I'm using the 64bit of ubuntu studio. Synaptic finished installing and it just installed back the 3.1 version.

    Thanks.. Worked like a charm. All I needed to do was substitute the name of the 64bit version in you instructions.

    I did get a fail error though on removing the OO hyphen code during the removal of the old OO version. But it doesn't seem to cause any issues so far

    I would also like to say thanks; this worked perfectly for me and I can't believe how fast OOo is now! What a great product.
