Ubuntu :: Openoffice Missing Menu Text / What To Do?

Jan 14, 2010

Good day, having a spot of bother with Openoffice, for some unknown reason im finding majority of the menu & button names have been replaced with "O" characters instead. Its doesn't effect all, but for example in the Writer, the only drop down menu at the top being render correctly is "Table". code...
All the buttons/sub buttons still work if you can guess where their pointing!

The only way I can seem to solve it is to remove "openoffice.org-gnome" & "openoffice.org-gtk" package.

Ive tried a complete reinstall already. Its usable without the above gnome and gtk extras but obviously not as nice to look at.

Im sure it was working fine the last time I used it?

Ubuntu Installation :: Openoffice Menu Text Corrupted Plus Freezes

Jun 9, 2010

I have recently done a clean install of Ubuntu 10.04. Since then I have had no end of trouble with Openoffice 3.2.

When I open any office app, the text on the menus is corrupted and has lines going through it. I've included some screenshot to show what I mean.

Also, sometimes when I open an Excel spreadsheet my entire system crawls to a standstill and it can take anything up to 10 minutes for it to respond again. Not even the mouse cursor will move. If I reboot the PC and open the same document it will sometimes be just fine. It is very random.

So far I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling openoffice.org from apt-get, but this hasn't fixed the problem.

My system:
OS: Ubuntu 10.04
CPU: Core 2 Duo
GPU: nForce 610i/nVidia 7050 (onboard VGA)

I use Ubuntu 10.04 and OpenOffice 3.2.We have forms we use for computers we sell. I have to fill out a profile. The problem is I cannot enter text into the text entry fields. I get this error:"Readonly content cannot be changed. No modifications will be accepted."Here is a link to one of the files.

Ubuntu :: Openoffice After Upgrading To Karmic - No Text In UI

Nov 6, 2009

I just upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10 then discovered that, in openoffice.org-writer, the text in the UI is gone. It's strange because the text to be edited is still there. So maybe it's a font or rendering problem but I suspect something related to the window manager is going wrong. I have checked and re-installed openoffice but I haven't been able to fix this so far.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Theme - Text Blotted Out In OpenOffice Applications

Jan 20, 2011

I have been using Ubuntu 10.10 for a few months now. I enjoy working with it, but there is one strange problem with Open Office (and Inkscape as well). When I attempt to work with either the word processor or spread sheet (this probably applies to other Open Office applications as well) under the default theme in Ubuntu, inevitably I get text and other elements blotted out with line smudges.

I have included a couple of screen shots, but I am wondering if this is a recurring problem with theme support (Open Office doesn't really use GTK/Gnome, does it?) or if it is some strange affect with the nvidia driver that I installed (version 260-19-06, my card is a GeForce Go 7150M). I have also noticed a slightly different problem, with Inkscape, where the ruler marks that track. The cursor movement don't delete themselves when the cursor moves, so the little triangles build up.

Ubuntu :: Proprietary ATI Driver No Text In Panel, Openoffice Freeze?

Dec 28, 2010

I've just upgraded to Maverick Meerkat on a new Dell system and everything was working just peachy until today. I've spent the last couple days tweaking my ubuntu so something I did made it so that open office only allows me to click inside it and write text some of the time, and very slowly. And then my panel doesn't show the text of the main menu headers. If i click on them though, the menu shows up with text inside it totally in tact.

The problem disappears when I disable the additional driver (preferences-additional drivers-remove). And recurs when I activate it. So, suspect its a conflict with xorg and the proprietary driver. I'm running emerald with window decorations (theme is neon glow) - changing the emerald theme doesn't affect the problem. Im also running compiz-fusion.

Ubuntu :: OpenOffice Highlighting-highlights Whole Paragraph Not Selected Text?

May 22, 2011

I have Open Office 3.2 with Ubuntu 10.04.When I select text-- a word, a few words-- and then click on highlight on the toolbar, it highlights the whole paragraph, rather than just the selected text. This is a new problem for me, before it seemed to be working fine.
I searched online but haven't been able to find anything about this problem. I had tried to install the sun version of Open Office a few months ago, but wasn't able to in the end: [URL] I saw that OpenOffice 3.3 is out, but I would rather not upgrade until Ubuntu puts out the upgrade.

Fedora :: OpenOffice.org Missing In The Repos?

Jan 25, 2011

I had been running the official build from the OOo Web site. I've deleted that and now want to install the version from the Fedora repos. yum install openoffice.org* yum's response: No package openoffice.org* available. Error: Nothing to do Then I tried to be more explicit:

yum install openoffice.org-calc openoffice.org-impress openoffice.org-writer openoffice.org-base openoffice.org-draw

yum's response:

No package openoffice.org-calc available.
No package openoffice.org-impress available.
No package openoffice.org-writer available.


Why isn't OOo in the repos? Is it removed when a new build is being made for the repos?

Fedora :: OpenOffice Selecting Text Drags Window?

Jan 10, 2011

I have this really strange openoffice behavior. Normally to drag window i need to press alt+left_mouse_button and drug window. Exactly same result i'm getting while selecting text in OOo writer and impress. As simple as holding still for, literally, a second, while selecting text, will initiate dragging of the entire window. I'm running F14_64 KDE and using OOo from repos.

Software :: Openoffice: Extract Numerical Value From Text Cell?

Jan 3, 2011

I just received a spreadsheet. Column B contains thousands of rows that look like this:

Giant Red Pencil 0.99

So each cell contains the item and price. I need the corresponding cells in column C to contain only the price like this:


How do I extract just the price from column B and put it in column C ?

Software :: Toolbar Buttons Missing (but Fixed) In Openoffice?

Aug 16, 2010

In Slackware 13.1, my OpenOffice menu buttons did not appear after installing the Slackbuild from slackbuild.org. I think this is a common issue. After reading around, I putCode:export OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=kdeinto my /etc/profile. OpenOffice now opens fine and all the menu button icons are present and correct but this only happens if I start OO from the CLI. This is fine for me but other users of this system will use the kicker menu. The problem is that this starts OpenOffice with no toolbar buttons.Code:exportOOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=kdeto my menu buttons

Ubuntu :: Text In Some Applications Is Missing Or Invisible

May 23, 2011

I'm finding that some applications (2 thus far) are not properly displaying text. I first noticed it in Firefox, where it appears that NO text is being rendered because the search and "feeling lucky" buttons are both about 1.5 characters wide and blank inside. I'll include screen-caps below to exemplify what I mean. In addition to Firefox, I just tonight noticed that my PDF reader is apparently rendering all text in white (even though the same PDF opens up fine with black text on my Windows desktop computer). For the PDF's, I can see that there is text there because I can do a Ctrl+A and copy, and then when I paste it into gedit I can see all the text.

Some background: I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 32-bit w/gnome. The first thing I did after installing Ubuntu was to install the BlackBuntu theme by copying appropriate files from /usr/share/ from the BlackBuntu live USB.

What I've tried: I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox a couple of times, but ultimately I just installed Chromium which is working fine and is not experiencing the same issue that Firefox is. I've tried changing my theme back to default, changing all the fonts (under Appearance Preferences), and nothing is fixing this. I'm about to just do a full reinstall of the OS, paying careful attention to at exactly what point in my process everything gets screwed up, but I'm hoping that someone has an idea that I can try before I have to reinstall the system.

Software :: Missing Text When Using Wine

Oct 22, 2010

Normally wine works well for me but I'm having trouble with one particular Windows app called Communicator, a voip softphone. The app starts up and the window is put on the screen but there is no text. Check boxes are drawn and filled and input boxes are shown, but still no text. All my system fonts are installed for wine to work. Here is the output if I run from the command line:


I'm suspicious about the line above: err:module:import_dll Library QtSvg4.dll but I'm not sure what to do because the file DOES exist in the referenced directory.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Menu Text Color?

Oct 8, 2010

I just upgraded to Maverick this afternoon, and have run into one very small, but very annoying problem.

Since upgrading, the text color for the Firefox menu is black. This makes it unreadable/invisible using probably the majority of personas. I have been able to find no way of changing this color. This was not an issue in Lucid.

There have been other threads on this subject, some of which suggest editing a userChrome.css file. I have edited that file, but upon restarting Firefox, the changes I have made revert back to what they had been before I made my edits.

I have also fiddled around with trying to change all manner of GTK settings, but still nothing has had any influence. I logged into a Gnome session, as well, but was still unable to remedy this.

Ubuntu :: Me Menu Text Box Does Not Auto-Clear

Apr 18, 2011

I've been meaning to ask about this since Ubuntu 10.10 launched. How come clicking the "Post message..." text box in the Me Menu doesn't auto-clear the text? You have to highlight the text, press Backspace and then post your message. Not very nice or intuitive. No biggie, just surprised it wasn't patched by someone within a day or two of launch as these things often are!
