Nice Programs XII: Open Office Quickstarter

If you use OpenOffice very often and you are sick of it starting so slowly, you should try out Open Office Quickstarter.
Just download the oooqs2-1.0.tar.gz file from here. Extract the folder into a directory.
Open a konsole and type
./configure && make && sudo make install

If you get errors like that:
make[3]: *** [index.cache.bz2] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/yourdirectory/oooqs2-1.0/doc/de'
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/yourdirectory/oooqs2-1.0/doc'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/yourdirectory/oooqs2-1.0'
make: *** [all] Error 2


you should replace the "index.docbook" file in /yourdirectory/oooqs2-1.0/doc/de/ with the one in /yourdirectory/oooqs2-1.0/doc/en/. Then try again with configure, make, make install (see above).

To start it type into your konsole: oooqs2
This nice little icon will appear in your taskbar:


Then you can customize it by rightclicking -> Configure OpenOffice.org Quicstarter (e.g. "Start OpenOffice.org Quickstarter at startup").
And of course, with rightclick you can also start directly Oo Base, Calc, Impress etc. :


One last remark: I think this program can be really useful if you use OpenOffice quite often - it may take a lot of memory.
