a small test program showing the problem un Ubuntu Mate 16.04
During presentation with Impress, the program stalls at a certain slide, which seems to be specific to a 3-liner text block.
This issue had been reported for previous versions
it had been absent for a later version
[Version: 188.8.131.52, Build-ID: 1:5.1.2-0ubuntu1, CPU-Threats: 8; BS-Version: Linux 4.4; UI-Render: Standard; Gebietsschema: de-DE (de_DE.UTF-8) running on Ubuntu-Mate 16.04]
but is now back in the 5.2-alpha version
[Version: 184.108.40.206.alpha1, Build ID: 902b28a39528b6c92602e9b521a1d0861be1caf9, CPU Threads: 8; OS Version: Linux 4.4; UI Render: default; Locale: de-DE (de_DE.UTF-8) ]
I found it existed already on a alpha0 version
[Version: 220.127.116.11.alpha0+, Build ID: 7b9a5e8124328da9d81aed58cf944c91560a7c07, CPU Threads: 8; OS Version: Linux 4.4; UI Render: default; TinderBox: Linux-rpm_deb-x86_64@70-TDF, Branch:master, Time: 2016-04-10_00:23:09, Locale: de-DE (de_DE.UTF-8)]
Attached is a small impress file, which does show the problem: in presentation mode it only ahows the vertikal-line animation on the first slide. Further clicks or key presses show nothing until the end of the presentaition

You can join IRC #libreoffice-qa @ Freenode and ask for bugs to test :)
If you don't have an IRC client: https://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=#libreoffice-qa
I can't reproduce it with

I can't test 5.3.x versions, but here are new 5.2 and 5.1 results, the older version working, the newer one not:
on Desktop with:
Libreoffice Version: 18.104.22.168, Build-ID: 1:5.1.4-0ubuntu1, CPU-Threads: 8; BS-Version: Linux 4.4; UI-Render: Standard; Gebietsschema: de-DE (de_DE.UTF-8)

WORKING NOT(!) OK:
on Laptop with:
Libreoffice Version: 22.214.171.124, Build ID: 1:5.2.1~rc2-0ubuntu1~xenial0, CPU Threads: 4; OS Version: Linux 4.4; UI Render: default; Locale: en-US (en_US.UTF-8); Calc: group

So, now I have the problem of downgrading on the laptop. Too difficult for me

You don't have to downgrade it. You can just install the 5.1 version https://launchpad.net/~libreoffice/+archive/ubuntu/libreoffice-5-1
After adding the ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-5-1 to my repositories, I find the 5.1.x versions as older versions of the installed 5.2.x. When attempting to force installation of the 5.1.x version, I get "broken package" notices.
It is the attempt of a downgrade, which - if possible at all - escapes me on how to achieve.
You already had 5.2 from the ppa?
Maybe try this
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa --remove
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get purge libreoffice*
And then only add the 5-1 repo.
You can also try parallel install https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Installing_in_parallel/Linux
Yes, by deleting everything it works. But then you also have to copy over your dictionaries and all other personal installations. Annoying.
However, I did this and can now say that the 3-liner works correctly also on Libreoffice 126.96.36.199, Build-ID: 1:5.1.5~rc2-0ubuntu1~xenial1.
Here the regression seems to come with the step to 5.2.x !
So this problem comes and goes between version 4.x and 5.x. Most recent is 5.1 good, and 5.2 bad.
I tried to parallel-install 5.3 - but where is it?
And as I have provided a very simple presentation, which shows this effect, it is still not possible to get debug info from LO to uncover the problem?
Then, even if 5.3 worked again, this history shows that this bug comes and goes. A "good" 5.3. does not prevent 5.4 from being "bad" again, as long as the bug has not been identified.
The bug is in 5.3, like I mentioned in comment 6
You can get 5.3 from http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/?C=M;O=A
Oh, I thought it meant the opposite thing ;-)
Good to see that I am no longer the only one to see this problem. I am willing to test, but my computer abilities are limited.
I just made the mistake of upgrading Libreoffice on Ubuntu Mate 16.04.2
The new version is now Version: 188.8.131.52,
Build ID: 1:5.3.3~rc2-0ubuntu0.16.04.1~lo0
CPU Threads: 4; OS Version: Linux 4.4; UI Render: default; VCL: gtk2; Layout Engine: new;
Locale: en-US (en_US.UTF-8); Calc: group
The error is back.
Any fix of the past apparently was a fix just by chance; the problem was not solved. Don't you realize that due to this issue you can never be sure you can give a presentation?
I wish this problem would be taken seriously.

There was no fix in the past, so I don't get what you are talking about.
I thought to try and bibisect it, but unfortunately I cannot reproduce it in Ubuntu 16.04 with various 5.2-5.3 versions. I tried VCL backends gtk, gen, x11.. no problem.
I still see the problem with Arch Linux, but I can't bibisect with Arch.

That is what I meant ;-) -- the bug just happens to be gone or not.
** Please read this message in its entirety before responding **
To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not
appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!
The bug is NOT present in this one:
Build ID: 1:5.1.6~rc2-0ubuntu1~xenial3
CPU Threads: 8; OS Version: Linux 4.13; UI Render: default;
Locale: en-US (de_DE.UTF-8); Calc: group
The bug IS AGAIN present in this one:
Build ID: 1:6.0.4~rc2-0ubuntu0.16.04.1
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 4.13; UI render: default; VCL: gtk2;
Locale: en-US (en_US.UTF-8); Calc: group
This bug is also seen on Windows. I cannot bibisect it, because it is in all the bibisect repos, even in 5.1.x versions. However, I can verify that the bug is not seen in 3.5.0 on Win or 3.6.7 on Linux.
Someone with working Linux bibisect repos has to analyse this.
