Description rptr 2019-07-02 16:47:56 UTC
When displaying some ODP presentations on my Pi, I get a black screen. I suspect it might be due to my LCD screen, but I can't be sure since I have only one screen available at the moment.

Here is one of the files which are currently completely black for me, I made it myself: https://github.com/LibreOffice/libresign/blob/master/presentations/test.odp

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Arch Linux ARM on e.g. Raspberry Pi
2. pacman -S libreoffice-fresh
3. Start LibreOffice and open the provided file
4. Start slideshow
5. On some (always the same one) slides, you get a black screen.

Actual Results:
There's a black screen!

Expected Results:
There shouldn't be a black screen!

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today, I got an error when trying to open test.odp.

Comment 2 Julien Nabet 2019-07-02 17:25:17 UTC
The odp seems corrupted since trying to unzip it gives:
Archive:  test.zip
  End-of-central-directory signature not found.  Either this file is not
  a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive.  In the
  latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
  the last disk(s) of this archive.
unzip:  cannot find zipfile directory in one of test.zip or
        test.zip.zip, and cannot find test.zip.ZIP, period.
Comment 3 rptr 2019-07-02 19:01:10 UTC
That's extremely odd. I will try to open the file myself on my system installation (debian testing) and git build. I believe I made it on the Pi (6.2.4-1).

Using unzip on the Pi doesn't give me any errors.

On my laptop (debian testing again):

rpj@boswell:~/Downloads$ unzip test.odp -d test

It also opens alright on my installation (

I don't think this is a problem on raspberry but a general one...

(In reply to Xisco Faulí from comment #8)
> The presentation doesn't go full screen for me

That's because it's set to window mode in settings, apparently. I didn't notice that until now, not sure why I saved it as such.

Slide Show > Slide Show Settings > Presentation Mode > Full screen [x]

File still is okay for me.
Comment 11 Thorsten Behrens (allotropia) 2019-07-04 19:00:45 UTC
No repro on the described setup (Pi3, Arch,, with the attached file).

Neither in fullscreen, nor in windowed mode. VCL plug is gtk3, in case that could be a difference.
Comment 12 Xisco Faulí 2019-12-03 10:30:04 UTC
Dear rptr,

Dear rptr,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
