Description Dave Richards 2017-05-24 16:56:37 UTC
Some of the slide transitions in Impress use GL.  When this is not properly available on the workstation, LibreOffice will crash.  In the past in this case, it would just blink and then not make the transition and our users would just pick another one.  But now it's actually crashing.

It would be OK if LO just worked as it did before and fail silently.

Even better would be if it knew these would not work and would gray them out.

Easily replicated, and attaching backtrace.   Let me know what else you need.

An example of one that crashes is "Cube".  Many other ones work fine.
