This happens randomly. The image only appears after multiple tries. The document is opened from a NTFS Windows partition.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy an image from Internet
2. Paste it in LibreOffice
2/3 of the time, it makes pop up a blank rectangle. Only after several tests, the image is displayed correctly.
The pictures should be displayed directly.

Thank you for reporting the bug.
Do you notice any patterns with regards to the image pasting?
For example: do you have trouble with only large images?
Having this information will help us verify the bug.
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' once the requested information is provided.
No, this applies to any kind of images. But the blank rectangle that pops up always have the same size.

How exactly did you "copy" the image from the internet?
Please provide a step-by-step description.
If you are copying the image with a right click context menu from within a web browser please provide a URL and image description so we can try to reproduce it from there.
Can you successfully paste images into applications other than LibreOffice, e.g. GIMP or KolourPaint?
Which browser are you using when you encounter this bug?
Your version info says you are using KDE, where image copying out of a browser usually works fine. Please try to reproduce this bug with other browsers and other desktop environments (GNOME, LXDE/openbox).
I've copied it with a right-click.
I've tried with these two images: https://i.ytimg.com/vi/fDm8JdCAPeM/maxresdefault.jpg [image of cactus] and http://i.ytimg.com/vi/ypG3yBxgDEs/maxresdefault.jpg [landscape]
It does the same thing if I copy them directly from the search engine or opening them in a new tab and then copying them.
Pasting them with <Ctrl-v> or with the right-click menu within Libreoffice produces the same result : the blank rectangle.
I've tried with Opera beta 68.0.3618.5 and firefox 74: it produces the same result.
I've tried with Onlyoffice Presentation: pasting works fine in each cases.
Let's guess that this is a duplicate of bug 113814.
You may wait until that one is fixed and test master.
And you may now test gtk3 to see if not happening.

seems to be related to kde5.
@Michael, do you reproduce this on your end ?
I cannot reproduce with
Build ID: aa24771563425072c710e8c426323ed311437f13
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 5.4; UI render: default; VCL: kf5;

(Copying the two mentioned images from Firefox to Impress works just fine.)
@launatheo: Can you try whether this issues is also reproducible with a current daily build from TDF rather than the Ubuntu-provided packages?
Those are available at  and you can install them in parallel as described at .
Also, is the issue also reproducible when you start LibreOffice from the command line using this command?
LibreOffice has been updated to 22.214.171.124 with Kubuntu 20.04 and the issue doesn't happen anymore.
