Under KDE when Desktop effects are disabled (Alt-Shift-F12 / Settings > Enable Desktop effects on startup) all menu text in libreoffice disappears.

It's really weird: On the splash screen (where you select the specific LO application) all the items are blank, only the underscore (that marks the keyboard shortcut of that menu item) is visible. The same for the main application menu. Also any text in dialogs and context menus.

In dialogs the text becomes visible when I move the window.

Strangely when I make a screenshot (witch ksnapshot) the text is visible on the saved image.

Operating System: Linux (Other)
Version: release

Thanks for reporting this bug! The issue described here is already reported as Bug 72262, hence I'll mark your report as a duplicate.

Would be great if you could also inform (Please do it as a comment in Bug 72262):

- The distribution you're using.

- KDE version.

- What graphics card you're using, and what driver.

- What happens if you switch to XRender instead of OpenGL (It's a setting in KDE 'System Settings' under Desktop Effects->Advanced->Compositing type)?

- Did you turn on font anti-aliasing\hinting (It's a setting in KDE 'System Settings' under Application Appearance->Fonts)? What happens if you change hinting setting or turn off anti-aliasing completely?

- Also take a look Tools->Options...->LibreOffice->View. There are settings related to hardware acceleration\font anti-aliasing. Does it make any difference if you turn them off? (note that there are two anti-aliasing check boxes in that dialog.)
