[Solved] LibreOffice white screen

Hey,

Just installed Arch for the first time on an XPS 13.

I just installed LibreOffice and when I try to open a file I get a white screen.

What I tried:

-  I tried both libreoffice-fresh and libreoffice-still.
-  I tried deleting user profile (~/.config/libreoffice/4/usr)
-  I tried running in safe-mode.
-  I tried 'allow use of OpenCL' option.
-  I tried editing registrymodifications.xcu and setting 'use OpenCL' to false (default was true).

Anyone have any suggestions?

Start it from a terminal and paste the error message.

Re: [Solved] LibreOffice white screen

"I get a white screen"
"Entire screen" or "libreoffice window" or "libreoffice document"?

Ensure there's no LO process lingering around before running this:

SAL_DISABLE_OPENCL=1 SAL_DISABLEGL=1 SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gen libreoffice --safe-mode

Okay. This is slightly embarrassing. I think it's an i3 thing.

I only get the white screen (full screen) when I try to open a file when LibreOffice is not in fullscreen. If LibreOffice is in fullscreen everything just work.

I'll go facepalm for a bit.

Tnx for your responses!

In case:

Thanks.

Otherwise at least update the OP to reflect the issue at hand.
