Description sergio.callegari 2018-12-21 21:50:40 UTC
LibO 6.2.0 RC1 in Linux with the KDE5 VCL on KDE 5 starts up with a too small window (about 1/6 in length or height of the screen estate).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start libreoffice from the command line on KDE5

Actual Results:
LibO starts up with a window that is so small that it cannot even show its edit pane.

Expected Results:
LibO should start with a window taking up enough space on the screen to be usable.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Does this happen for you every time or is the window size remembered if you maximize the tiny window, close LibreOffice and start again?

Does it happen with a fresh user profile as well?

For me, it does not happen with a fresh user profile, but it happens when I first start LibreOffice Writer with the 'gtk3' VCL plugin, and then with 'kde5', i.e. running

    SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk3 ./instdir/program/soffice --writer
    SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=kde5 ./instdir/program/soffice --writer

Fortunately, the window starts up maximized again once I have manually maximized it and closed LibreOffice (and don't start with another VCL plugin in between).

I guess we can close this a dupe of bug 120791
