I can not choose version in bug report
Comment 4 Julien Nabet 2020-08-04 12:03:01 UTC
On which Linux distrib are you and which version?
Is it a new behaviour after some upgrade or anything?

Thank you for the quick feedback.
Any better if you try this on term/console:
export SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gen;soffice

(the goal is to know if it's specific to kde rendering or not).
Comment 7 Peter Stolz 2020-08-04 12:28:00 UTC
Yes this works - now I see a menu bar
Comment 8 Julien Nabet 2020-08-04 12:38:47 UTC
Michael: I gave a try on my machine with export SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=kf5 but, like gtk3 rendering too, no pb with menu bar. Any idea of root cause?
Comment 9 Peter Stolz 2020-08-05 12:53:52 UTC
The problem is KDE related. I removed a global menu mini program from my kde application bar and the menu bar is visible.
Comment 10 Julien Nabet 2020-08-05 13:02:35 UTC
Thank you Peter for this new feedback.
Let's put this one to WFM since there's no specific patch here to fix the problem.
