Never heard of MeeGo.
Any reason you could not use a more "main stream" Linux OS that might not have the issue?

I do not have a Netbook/tablet combo, so I do not know which OS would be best. My only tablet is an Android. I find that a tablet is no good for any "real" typing work because of the size/type of keyboard it uses. So I stick with my desktop or laptops. I do not know how people would do all their school work with only a tablet, even if it is a 10" Apple version. I also need my 19 or 23 inch monitor to get my work done "easily" on my desktop.

Hi :)
Even if you are a dev it's still good to have a report to work from (i guess, tbh i don't really 
know but i likel being able to tick things off when i've completed something).

If you have no experience writing for LO and would like to start then it might be best to start with a couple 
of "Easy Hacks" and see what kind of response you get.  I think there is some sort of Mentoring 
thing going on that might help you expand your skills sideways into LO-land more easily.  Another route mgiht 
be to write a small Extension and see how that goes.  Diving straight in might be tempting but might not end 
up being faster at all.

Hi Tom,

ok, I am going to report a bug.

In fact I can try fix this by myself, I am developer. But I have no idea how
to start and I don't know if it's appropriate to post a question like this
developer list :-)

Report a bug is a good start point, thank for your answer.

Hi :)
Sorry no-one has replied to you so far!  It sounds like a bug.  So, it
would be great is you could post a bug-report about it.  Hopefully this
link will help

They probably wont be able to fix it quickly and it may well take several
months before you see a result but it's better to post now or as soon as
possible otherwise it may take even longer before it even gets noticed
again let alone fixed
Regards from
Tom :)

*Subject:* [libreoffice-users] GUI error in tablet mode

Hi all,

I am running LibreOffice in a convertible netbook which has a 10"
screen with resolution 1024x600. Everything works fine in netbook mode:

When I convert to tablet mode and rotate to portrait orientation, the close
button is shown upon help menu:

If I quit the program in this state and open it again, the problem still
happens, in any mode or orientation:

My OS is MeeGo 1.2. I tried to use the current LibO release: same problem.
Anyone knows how can I fix this?

Thank you
