Description Marcus Tomlinson 2019-11-22 11:06:16 UTC
In certain situations, more than one global menu is displayed in GTK3 VCL, when used with Unity-style globalmenu - vala-panel-appmenu, or with GTK3 Backend on KDE.

Test environment - on Ubuntu 19.10, Unity DE
About box - see: 20-11-19-MT-About.png

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch Writer directly - perfect, no duplicate menus.
2. Launch Start Center - duplicate menus (see: 20-11-19-MT-SC.png)
3. Launch Writer from Start Center - duplicate menus (see: 20-11-19-MT-SC-Writer.png)

Actual Results:
Duplicate menus seen in steps 2 and 3.

Expected Results:
No duplicate menus in any of the 3 steps.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
This issue is closer to being resolved thanks to the work done on: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=124391

Though now the issue seems a little different (see steps to reproduce).

Thank you for reporting the bug. To be certain the reported issue is not
related to corruption in the user profile, could you please reset your
Libreoffice profile ( https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile ) and

I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to
'UNCONFIRMED' if the issue is still present
Comment 5 Marcus Tomlinson 2019-12-11 13:04:49 UTC
Removed both ~/.config/libreoffice and ~/.config/libreofficedev directories, and the steps to reproduce are still valid.
Comment 6 Timur 2020-01-10 17:15:09 UTC
