so what do I need to install to prevent libreoffice from being so slow that it becomes unusable?
This issue has been there with Fedora years ago, and now there´s same issue with CentOS. Back then, there was a package you could install to make it work at normal speeds, but last time I checked, this package doesn´t exist anymore.
This issue is particular to the Fedora/CentOS versions of libreoffice and does not occur with other builds like the one you can download from the libreoffice web site.
I was trying to make a chart and it became so slow that it´s unusable. I
guess scrolling is only fast enough because I have a powerful graphics card.
