The ooqs-* packages no longer exist in Dapper. However, you can easily enable the built-in quickstarter in OpenOffice.org 2 via the application preferences.
Tools > Options > Memory
and check the box for
Load OpenOffice.org during system start-up.
The quickstarter will automatically run the next time OO.org is started.
Alternatively, add a Startup Program in your Sessions preferences:
ooffice -quickstart -nologo -nodefault
Setting some memory settings give a serious speed improvement from the default Feisty Ubuntu installation:
Open OpenOffice.org Word Processor
Go to Tools -> Options -> Memory
- Set the following values:
- Number of steps: 30
Use for OpenOffice.org: 128 MB
- Memory per object: 20 MB

It's possible to install extra languages for OpenOffice through the myspell-* packages:
Find the name of the language pack you want through a search on the packages database (e.g. myspell-da for danish)
- Install the package:
sudo apt-get install myspell-da
Voila! You might have to restart OpenOffice in order for it to recognize it.
