Description Scott Inrig 2022-09-07 18:46:38 UTC
On a Raspberry Pi 3B running 'bullseye' (latest OS), Impress crashes when running a slide show where the slides use the 'fade' transition (with any of its options). The display also flickers badly during the transition.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.On a Raspberry Pi, open a presentation in which slides use 'fade' transitions.
2.Start the slide show from the first slide.

Actual Results:
Impress displays the first slide (display has significant flickering), then crashes during the first or second transition, then invites me to recover the input file. The same problem occurs in safe mode.

Expected Results:
The slide show displays completely without crashing or having display flickering issues.

Reproducible: Always

Rarely will testers have Pi.. but why do you use old LO?
Still is
Fade had fix in bug 91456 from LO 7.4.

I guess nothing more can be done here. 
You will probably have to wait with LO 7.2 or 7.3 for Debian 12 Bookworm or find a repository that provides Linux ARM packages for LO or compile yourself.
