Description Mikhail Novosyolov 2017-12-18 20:05:53 UTC
libvclplug_gtk3lo.so is missing in official DEB builds of Libreoffice, e.g. 6.0 beta2. Currently I see a graphics performance regression in 6.0 beta2 compared to 5.4, but cannot test it properly.

user@pay2:/opt/libreofficedev6.0/program$ ls | grep -i gtk

user@pay2:~$ locate libvclplug_gtk

The https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/Bibisect/Linux#dbgutil dbgutil bibisect repo from Miklos is a gkt3 enabled build you might be able to use for bisection. Though it is a dbgutil build so far slower than a normal one so that might cause a problem
Comment 2 Caolán McNamara 2017-12-21 12:09:04 UTC
The flatpak builds are gtk3 too FWIW https://www.libreoffice.org/download/flatpak/
Comment 3 Aron Budea 2017-12-23 05:43:40 UTC
The bibisect-linux-64-6.0 (and -5.4, -5.3) bibisect repos are also GTK3-enabled.

Hi Mikhail Novosyolov,
Is the package still missing in LibreOffice 6.0 RC2?
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to
'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version.
Comment 5 Mikhail Novosyolov 2018-06-23 12:49:33 UTC
There is still no libvclplug_gtk3lo.so
Comment 6 Aron Budea 2018-06-23 13:54:05 UTC
The official TDF builds aren't GTK3-enabled, so ultimately thi isn't a bug.
Comment 7 Mikhail Novosyolov 2018-06-23 15:03:02 UTC
Gtk2 VCL has graphical artefacts of different sevirity on different machines in reacent Libreoffice versions. Its unusable for some documents
Comment 8 Aron Budea 2018-06-24 23:25:33 UTC
Do you have screenshots of the artifacts and system details? (especially GPU and GPU drivers)
Comment 9 Mikhail Novosyolov 2018-06-24 23:34:39 UTC
No, because I saw a lot of them and in different situations, they changed from version to version and I did not see a lot of sense in debugging old GTK2 VCL. Of course, I may try to reproduce some of them, but that will not be easy.
