Do not know why, on some debian wheezy desktops the LibreOffice Logo is not sharp.
My display resolution is 1680x1050
looks fine on Windows 7 64bit.
probabbly a Linux specific bug.
I have some desktop with a different resolution than 1680x1050 and the libreoffice logo is ok.
did you try changing resolution settings in those 2 computers?
does it change things or not?

the question is:
in the computer where the logo is OK, is it still OK at any resolution setting?
in the computer where the logo is not smooth, is it still bad at any resolution setting?

that was true with 126.96.36.199 under Win7 64bit. logo looked normal.
now using 188.8.131.52 on the same machine I see the same ugly logo reported by Samuel under Debian
changing status to NEW and platform to ALL
as additional informations I'm using a laptop with 1200x800 resolution and an external secondary monitor with 1400x1050 resolution. "about" logo is awful in both monitors.
same issue with 184.108.40.206 master build Sept.10
please do not revert status from NEW to NEEDINFO
NEW means the bug has been confirmed.
NEEDINFO means the bug is not yet confirmed and additional informations about reproducibility are needed.
so the correct status is now NEW
logo still ugly in 220.127.116.11 under Win7 64bit.
I add Astron to CC-list, maybe he can help.
the same in 18.104.22.168 under Linux (Ubuntu 12.04 64bit)

this issue seems minor since it doesn't affect productivity and is just a matter of aesthetics... however I feel that this ugly about logo could be used against the LibO project to discredit the quality of the project.
I know that you should not judge a book by it's cover, but I think action must be taken before someone uses this to accuse LibO of being a buggy software...
I mean, somebody could argue that "LibO comes out with a scrambled about box, would you dare compose your documents with such a software?"
so I'm thinking if we should give this bug a MAB status.
CCing Joel about this.
Confirming for LibO 4.1 (openSUSE 12.3/x86-64 build).
Can't (!) confirm on my own few-weeks-old 4.2-master build (again, Linux x86-64).
This logo is an SVG, so any corruption in this logo may also occur with other SVG images. On openSUSE, the file is installed under:
/usr/share/libreoffice/program/flat-logo.svg (may be elsewhere on other OS's),
in the LibO core repo, it is in:
Given that the triangles in the background (another SVG) are not pixelated, the bug may just have to do with how the SVG is embedded into the window in this particular place..?

LibO 4.2 alpha 2013-11-01 logo

That's what I think too!
486x80 -> original /opt/libreoffice4.1/program/flat_logo.svg
665x109 -> cut out on a screenshot, looks as if it has been enlarged, maybe thats the problem?
Created attachment 88560 [details]
original -> enlarged
added to mab4.1 list.
as an additional information I see that after resetting the user profile in Win7 64bit the logo look fine.
there is probably something causing conflicts (maybe extensions?)
is there any other user that can confirm issue disappear after resetting the user profile?
Andras - a duplicate of my complaint for our internal builds ;-) I wonder guys - do you change your default font size at all. My first suspicion would be that there is some TWIPS magic in here that is affected by some font size change =) any fiddling with that / re-testing appreciated. IIRC that is an svg file in there so ... it should scale beautifully.
Icon size and style
[Automatic] | [Automatic (Tango)] = logo scale bad
[Automatic] | [Galaxy (default)] = logo scale fine
After delete LibreOffice profile, the logo is scale fine with "Automatic (Tango)".
So, as far as I understand, the bug does not occur with a new profile. At least I could not reproduce it with any scaling/icon style combinations.
Tools - Options - LibreOffice - View - Graphics output - Use Anti-Aliasing
This has to checked for smooth About box logo. I wonder what to do now...

Yes, that is the solution, with anti-aliasing any icon size and style work.

yes, it works now in 22.214.171.124
however logo is smooth in 3.6.7 even if auto-aliasing is off.
all 4.1.x releases and probably all 4.0.x releases (I've tested backwards up to 4.0.4) show ugly logo when auto-aliasing is OFF and nice logo when auto-aliasing is ON
I suspect the regression took place with 4.0.0

See bug 59970. The svg image first was converted to a large bitmap, then it was scaled down to the right size. This performed awfully slow, so the current solution was chosen.
Ok. now I wonder if we can close this report.
the workaround is very easy, just toggle ON the auto-aliasing option and the logo will be nice as expected.
can anybody tell me if the default setting for auto-aliasing in a fresh new installation is ON or OFF?
as said before a new user should not see that ugly logo which could give a bad impression about to LibO, so I recommend auto-aliasing to be ON by default.
the issue will happen only to those users using an old profile where anti-aliasing is OFF.

I guess we just need some way of forcing AA to 'on' in the drawinglayer programatically for this piece :-)
Is where the global setting is set I guess.
calc has this horrible class:
* Temporarily turn off antialiasing.
Which we could invert and mirror here [ if that would help ;-]. Having said that the output is sufficiently awfully ugly that IMHO AA is not the whole story - surely ? either way - patches welcome for 4.2 ...
Andras Timar committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
fdo#67401 set AntiAliasing for SVG logo
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
information about daily builds can be found at:
Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.

just for the record I moved this to the mab4.0 list since the issue started with 4.0.x
nice to hear that Andras fixed it.
