How to Fix Blank/Lined OpenOffice Menus

Postby stoneheart » Mon Mar 23, 2009 7:01 am

When trying to use OO, I was getting just blanks and lines in all the dropdown menus, making the software useless. A search on Google revealed that it was a bug associated with my Nvidia driver. I needed to keep the closed source driver to keep my screen resolution at a reasonable level, but disabling the visual effects under Preferences -> Appearance fixed the OO menu problem.

Unfortunately Compiz has too many side effects
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
