Description stragu 2021-08-01 13:01:16 UTC
Description:
When using the desktop environment's dark mode in GNOME, the LibreOffice start center's banner / logo in the bottom left does not display properly: only the word "Libre" from "LibreOffice Community" is visible.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn Dark Mode on in GNOME's settings (in Appearance section)
2. Open LibreOffice to see the start center

Actual Results:
Logo is displayed wrong.

Expected Results:
Logo is still readable, similar to what happens in the About dialogue.


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No

Compare the Start Center banner to the one in the About dialogue.

Note that the logo displays fine if the GNOME appearance is switched to dark mode while the start center is already open. But once the dark mode is set, if LibreOffice is closed and start center reopened, the logo is not displayed properly.

Repro with Breeze dark colours in KDE + gtk3 vcl plugin. Will bibisect with 7.3 soon.

Oops, can't bisect yet as it is not seen in the latest of 7.3 repo:

commit d1abf4acc1ed26e35ff1347dd5bf0b4ac4f0c70a (HEAD -> master, origin/master, origin/HEAD)
Author: Jenkins Build User <tdf@pollux.tdf>

    source sha:612d5b1a04fe022a34018d901bb9b052791d54e5

But good to know it is between that and source hash 1dd4a80fa076bedb3a82821517036bad8dd79857

Weird: now the 7.3 repo was updated, but I still don't see the issue!

Interesting, I can't reproduce anymore with the latest build:

Ah, in safe mode with my own build I don't reproduce, let's close
Comment 8 stragu 2021-08-10 13:58:22 UTC
Ah, I'm reopening as I could reproduce on another computer: with the latest daily build (9th of August 2021, using Ubuntu Budgie 18.04 with Arc-Dark widgets and dark mode on.

I think I found the precise steps to reproduce:

Instead of opening the Start Center directly (which would display the logo properly):

1. (restart in safe mode and reset to factory settings if needed)
2. open a module, e.g. Writer
3. close the document (with the "Close document" top right cross), not the LibreOffice window
4. See the Start Center as a result

Actual results: LibreOffice logo display is wrong, like in Attachment 174014 [details]

Ah, that is still true for gtk3, I repro.
Comment 10 Buovjaga 2021-08-10 14:07:09 UTC
I see this already in 7.2 repo (jumping back 2000 commits from latest), so I think it has always been like this.
