Bug's screenshot

'About' window in LibreOffice doesn't have a caption. This is also reflected in taskbar panel (I don't know how it is exactly called in english. Just a panel which is on bottom with default settings and all Windows are shown there as a small panels). I attached a screenshot with it.
Comment 1 Jorendc 2013-05-21 19:59:04 UTC

Thanks for reporting, but I can not reproduce this anymore using Linux Mint 15 x64 with LibreOffice There is now 'LibreOffice 4.0' in the window title. Can you verify that?

Kind regards,

Jorendc, I updated LO via update manager in Lubuntu 12.04 to But problem still exists. I have same situation with GUI. Only version was changed in About dialog.

Comment 6 retired 2014-05-07 12:46:09 UTC shows "LibreOffice 4.2" in the title of the about window under ubuntu 14.04.

If this persists with that or a newer version, please re-open.

Still has this bug active with version with Xubuntu 12.04. Screenshot  updated.
Comment 9 retired 2014-07-03 01:20:26 UTC
Looks like this is Xubuntu related or Ubuntu 12.x specific. Thanks for the update.
Comment 10 Maxim Monastirsky 2014-07-03 08:03:10 UTC
Reproducible with under Windows 7. Indeed this dialog doesn't have a title - have a look at http://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/cui/uiconfig/ui/aboutdialog.ui. The title "LibreOffice 4.2" mentioned here is set by the window manager (for any window without a title), not by LO.
