Hi all, I have the same issue since one and half year at least, from Kubuntu 9.04 if I'm not wrong. I stick with Ubuntu only because I like it, I support it, and the issue is random, so luckily it doesn't happen everytime. But productivity sucks a lot. It takes almost 20 seconds to do a save/opening, and every click I do (for example to browse into a sub-folder) takes the same.
Currently I use Kubuntu 10.04 64bit and the same issue appears on two different laptops. No fix found. I tried disabling java but nothing.
I hope that someone is able to find a definitive fix....this is really sad.
All over the place, from the popular culture to the propaganda system, there is constant pressure to make people feel that they are helpless, that the only role they can have is to ratify decisions and to consume.
Similar behaviour here; OOO is very slow to open files, eg to insert a picture from file. It takes 10 to 15 seconds just to refresh the directory listing in the open file dialog.
Running OOO 3.2 on Kubuntu 10.04 64 bit. Software off the repositories, no special tweaks. The previous version of OOO & Kubuntu ran fine on this hardware.
But shutting down OOO and restarting it seems to fix the problem. (?)

I too had the same problem and seemed to have solved it by changing the path for files as I use a 2nd HD for storing all my Data I pointed Ooo to the appropriate folder for My Documents, on that drive and now files load and save instantly!! Incedently I also changed the back up folder to my Data drive
Replace hostname with your hostname. (If you don't know what your hostname is you can enter 'hostname' in a terminal)Code:127.0.0.1 hostname localhost hostname.(none)
I did some packet sniffing and found out OO does a DNS query on "hostname.(none)" for some reason. This host does not exists so it times out. By adding this line to your hosts file your basically saying that "hostname.(none)" is your own machine so a DNS query isn't necessary.
You're my new best friend
Woooooooooooooooooooooooooo! It's working!!!!!!!
Okay, so just a summery on the solution.
Then edit the file so it looks like this:sudo gedit /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1 hostname localhost hostname.(none)
I actually feel so stupid that I did not try to read that letter in dutch, because I know a bit of Afrikaans. *facepalm*
"Het resultaat is waanzinnig goed! Ik ben blij."
I confuse myself as to why I do certain things.
