I am using two laptop, Fujitsu S6520, one with 4GB RAM (mine) and the
other with 2GB RAM (wife's).
For the 4GB RAM, I am using Jaunty 64bit, where the 2GB one is using
Jaunty 32 bit.
Then I install the Open Office 3.1 from :
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
The problem I have is that on the Jaunty 64 bit, the OpenOffice is not
working smoothly. Every time I open a document in Writer which has many
formatting, custom fields, pictures and tables (~30 pages, 700KB), the
Let's say I drag the slider to jump from page 1 to page 10, the page
movement is not smooth, but jumpy and sometimes the whole screen will be
darkened during transition (I think this is a feature from Gnome telling
the system is unresponsive).
Or if I scroll my mousewheel, the movement of the screen is late so I
ends up waiting the screen to scroll into the page I want, although I
already release the mousewheel.
I thought before it was caused by the document itself, but when one day
I borrow my wife's laptop update the document, I am surprised that on
the 32 bit Jaunty, it has no problem.
Anybody have the same experience?
