I recently accessed LibreOffice (LO) on Lubuntu 20.10. Often - if not always - either when creating a new document or editing an existing one, when inserting formulas, when inserting OLE Objects, when inserting frames, or even, in some cases, as soon as the LO starts, the LibreOffice window is unconfigured and makes using the program somewhat impossible; again, it always happens.
As I had already contacted a support through the link “https://ask.libreoffice.org”, in “https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/276821/bug-in-the-libreoffice-graphical-interface/”, I discovered that the probable cause of the error was in the package “libreoffice-qt5”, which apparently was in conflict with some other package.
The implemented solution was to exclude the package “libreoffice-qt5”, and this solved the problem; graphical flaws did not appear again after this action.
In fact, I had both installed LibreOffice through the Lubuntu repository and the official website, and the error was present in both;
Note: the pc is newly formatted, so there are no significant changes in the system settings, in order to affect the LO;
Steps to Reproduce:
- insert a formula (which will open the formula editor)
(OR insert a frame,
OR insert a OLE Object);
- exit the formula editor and go back to the text editor
(no need to type anything in the formula);
At this point, the error must have already occurred, and the LibreOffice window is already strangely corrupted, with parts of the image locked, another part darkened, and so on;
Ideally, the LO window should not corrupt; in fact, if you go to other software in the suite without ending the session, this failure will accompany all other programs;
User Profile Reset: Yes
Bug images in the LibreOffice window:
Here is information extracted from the LO help menu:
Build ID: 00(Build:2)
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 5.8; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3
Locale: pt-BR (pt_BR.UTF-8); UI: en-US
Ubuntu package version: 1:7.0.2-0ubuntu1
Note that it may be important:
I checked LibreOffice (LO) version 126.96.36.199 - which is on another laptop, with Lubuntu 19.10 - and confirmed that this “libreoffice-qt5” package was not present in that version (which is without this error); on the other hand, the package “libreoffice-jdk3” already accompanied the previous version;
