I've just update my libreoffice 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168.... When I start Writer, Impress or Calc, the first time I click on any main menu it does not show submenus automatically (I recorded problem using RecordMyDesktop and uploaded to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNQ0r4YVITU).
I heard that menu issues are realted to Unity. So is it Ubuntu or LibreOffice problem? And any idea how to fix it?
I am using Ubuntu 13.04 and Libre Office 22.214.171.124. (this didn't happen in 126.96.36.199.)..
Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: 188.8.131.52 release
Last worked in: 184.108.40.206 release
Which LibreOffice version do you use _exactly_? Full version number and source please (official repo? ppa? upstream? full debian version in case of a packaged version please)
Trying this with 220.127.116.11 from the ppa, I see this ... somewhat: When I create a new table and directly go immediately to the table->delete menu it is still disabled, but not when doing it slower or when rolling to another menu, so this is likely just a latency issue: the menu just isnt updated quick enough.
whops, last comment was for bug 64560, which is likely related.
Version 18.104.22.168 (Build ID: 400m0(Build:3))
I run in cmd "sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-4-0"
and then went to Software Updater... 87 MB was downloaded and installed...
how can I try to reinstall it?
@Ljijan: On which Ubuntu version?
I had Ubuntu 12.10 and when 13.04 was released, I updated to 13.04.
Some additional info (if it matters?)
In Ubuntu 12.10 I used LibreOffice 4.0 (installed from official LO PPA), but it didn't integrate well with Unity launcher... (all programs were grouped under the one icon)... then removed it using Synaptic Package Manager (I marked all LibreOffice Packages for Complete Removal) and then reinstalled it using Ubuntu Software Center... when new version of Ubuntu was relased, I update my Ubuntu to 13.04 and new Libre Office 22.214.171.124 was already there... no problems intead of menu hover problem that is already reported. And few days ago I updated my Libre Office to 126.96.36.199. using LO PPA.
Will it help to reinstall LO?
This is a sideeffect of the fix for:
because exporting the menu to unity the first time takes time. Note that the menu shows up after a short delay even in your video.
Same fix is also on master and will be released with 4.1.x. The question is still open if this will be SRUed to raring though.
updating bug summary.
closing as WONTFIX for now upstream.
any suggestion what should I do? should I unistall 188.8.131.52 and install 184.108.40.206.?
Same problem here in Ubuntu 12.04. Submenus do not appear at all. In Ubuntu 13.04, submenus appear after a while.
Both machines are using PPA. Upgraded to the latest version.
Rico will rebuild the 12.04 build without the patch. I will likely do the same and not SRU this to 13.04. Still this will be released with upstream LibreOffice 4.1 (introducing the delay and but fixing the 'menus dead after print preview').
I don't have problems any more. Ubuntu updated Libre Office to 220.127.116.11 again (even though it already was 18.104.22.168.) and now no delays to submenus. Update was provided today.
I don't understand what happened, but the problem is solved...
