When creating a presentation from scratch the slideshow seems working as designed. But on all my existing slide decks I run into the same problem

I can confirm this. Updated to 3.5 yesterday a few hours before I needed to give a short presentation and had "empty" slides with the projector. The presentation was an "old" one, done using a previous version of libreoffice/openoffice. I have a mac as well. The quick but undesirable workaround was to convert the slides to pdf and present them with acrobat.

Hardware Acceleration related? DUP of "Bug 46532 - SLIDESHOW does not show pictures with Hardware Acceleration activated"?

Closing Bug due to reporter's inactivity.

@reporter:
