Description gd 2014-04-08 14:37:24 UTC
Xubuntu 14.04 with stock libreoffice(4.2) shows no text on menu's when in multiseat with (nvidia)separate xscreens.Starting libreoffice in terminal gives a : Xlib: extension "XINERAMA" missing on display "1.0".
Libreoffice starts but no text in menu's.
Starting libreoffice in non-multiseat -non separate xscreens: ok.

Libreoffice 4.1 has no problems in multiseat with separate xscreens.

Downgrading libcairo2 to 1.10 gives me back text and menu's in libreoffice in multiseat, but other programs will not start than.
Comment 1 gd 2014-04-08 14:47:21 UTC
