Description mensoif_gerard 2012-01-26 05:51:38 UTC
Created attachment 56183 [details]
Win Screenshot

I made A presentation, and when hitting the "Slide Show" Button on linux, the layout get weired.

I tried with debian package from wheezy, 3.3.4 and 3.4.5 from http://www.libreoffice.org the result is always the same, the layout is broken.

Using the same Presentation on a windows 7 with LO 3.3.2 or 3.4.5 works like a charm

I made 2 screenshots to make my point clear.

Thanks for attachment
Reproduced in 3.3.4 and 3.5.1 on Fedora 64 bit (Linux specific bug)
Only if Hardware acceleration enabled
Changing version to 3.3.4 as most early reproducible

PS: meanwhile, disable option Tools->Options, LibreOffice->View, field "Use hardware acceleration"
Comment 6 mensoif_gerard 2012-03-24 08:20:32 UTC
Thanks for the workaround, I didn't even know that this option exists.
Comment 7 A (Andy) 2013-04-24 21:30:30 UTC
I can confirm not reproducible with LO (Win7 Home, 64bit)

Does this Linux issue also still persist for you with the latest release of LO?

Comment 16 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2018-06-17 09:58:44 UTC
still reproducible with current master built at home under Ubuntu 16.04 x86-64:
Build ID: 23fa8a6ed05386ce6e9997747b416279f46ddd5f
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 4.4; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3; 
Locale: fr-FR (fr_FR.UTF-8); Calc: threaded

Since this bug report OpenGL has been implemented, and the bug does not manifest itself with OpenGL activated.
With OpenGL desactivated, same behavior, same workaround.

Dear mensoif_gerard,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
