Description John 2012-03-24 11:30:40 UTC
Created attachment 58983 [details]
presentation lecture with master background and a few pictures.

Problem description: 

Steps to reproduce:
1. create presentation
2. run slideshow on F5
3. some text appears but not master or pictures

Current behavior:slideshow text appears but not master background or pictures. Didn't expect this in a release candidate. Critical problem for me and renders this release unusable - I need slideshow to work.

Expected behavior:pictures and master background should show. Worked fine in 3.5.1. 

Platform (if different from the browser): problem exists on Win 7 x64 but is fine under Mint 12 x64
Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:14.0) Gecko/20120324 Firefox/14.0a1

Hardware Acceleration enabled/disabled (v 3.5.1/3.5.2 RC1)?
The slideshow of the attached 'Wisdom 2.odp' works fine for me with LibreOffice 3.5.2 RC1 (Hardware Acceleration disabled).

Please check against 'Bug 46532 - SLIDESHOW does not show pictures with Hardware Acceleration activated'.

Probably duplicate of bug 46532.

I get a missing background on 3.5.2 RC1 under windows xp.  I tried with hardware acceleration on/off and it did not matter.  Still a missing background.  But yes probably a dupe.

Marked as duplicate of 'Bug 46901 - SLIDESHOW shows characters too slim with Hardware Acceleration activated - cairo canvas used in error on windows'.

Please try:
Tools > Options > LibreOffice > View > Graphics output
☐ Use hardware acceleration [disabled]

Feel free to reopen this bug if the workaround did not show the slideshow background.
