[Mint 14 64bit Mate] White-on-white in LibreOffice documents

Postby rlindau on Fri Nov 23, 2012 7:07 pm

Since installing Mint 14 (and LO 3.6.2.2), I've had a problem that patches of text in my text documents appear to display "white on white" - it's as if the text for a number of lines disappears (although I can still see pink squiggly underlines for misspellings in that area). If I click a couple places within that area, the text display goes back to normal black-on-white appearance). This problem happens with already-existing documents that displayed OK previously (Mint 13, LO 3.6.2).

Has anyone else seen this behavior, and (I hope) know a resolution?

It could certainly be a LO problem, nothing to do with Mint, but I needed to start somewhere....

I've Googled for my symptoms but don't see anything.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. Regards, RL

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I had a similar problem about a year ago and I fixed it by updating my video drivers.
Maybe that is the problem.

[Solved] White-on-white in LibreOffice documents

Sheesh, I should have thought of that.

You're right - When I installed the proprietary Nvidia display drivers, the LO office went away.

Thanks much for your help.
