Description kiewoonlim 2022-04-26 03:49:28 UTC
I’m using LibreOffice version in Ubuntu MATE 22.04.
I noticed that after I open the 1st file (.ods, .xls, .xlsx) with LibreOffice Calc, subsequent file opening in LibreOffice Calc always come with a “Opening <file>” taskbar message. Although the file is already opened, but the “Opening <file>” taskbar message stays for >10 seconds. Note that the “Opening <file>” taskbar message appear when I open the 1st file, but the message disappear relatively quickly when the 1st file is opened.

I tried it on Ubuntu 22.04. Such "Opening <File>" taskbar message doesn't appear at all. I'm not sure whether it is due to the differences in desktop environment GNOME2 (Ubuntu MATE 22.04) and GNOME42 (Ubuntu 22.04). 

I'm not sure whether it is safe to start editing the opened file, with the "Opening <file>" taskbar message still there? Can I do something to make the "Opening <file>" taskbar message don't appear at all or disappear faster?

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open the first file in LibreOffice Calc.
2.Open the 2nd file in LibreOffice Calc

Actual Results:
The "Opening <file>" taskbar message for the 2nd file stays in the taskbar for >10 seconds even after the 2nd file is open.

Expected Results:
The <Opening <file> taskbar message should disappear after the file is opened.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

OpenGL enabled: Yes

Not reproduced in Ubuntu 22.04 using MATE login.

Ratslinger confirmed seeing this with Ubuntu 20.04 in https://ask.libreoffice.org/t/libreoffice-calc-with-slow-opening-why/76725 so I guess this should be set to NEW.

Would be nice to hear, if anything changed with LibreOffice 7.4 or any MATE updates.
