Description Ongun Kanat 2019-02-13 21:52:43 UTC
Libreoffice stucks at the splash screen when "SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=qt5" is set.

The bug does not happen when KDE5 VCL plugin or Qt5 VCL plugin with Cairo path is used.

The build script used is https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/packages.git/tree/trunk/PKGBUILD?h=packages/libreoffice-fresh

OS: Arch Linux x86_64
Qt 5.12.1
KDE Frameworks 5.55

LibreOffice is going to be released today, could you please try again
with this version to see if the problem has been resolved meanwhile? Thanks in

Thank you for your bug report. This has already been reported as 123072.

Side note: In it's current stage, I wouldn't really recommend using the qt5 VCL plugin with the QPainter backend anyway.
(Currently, qt5 is mostly meant to be the basis for the kde5 VCL plugin.)
