Hi all,

I run LibreOffice on a /very/ old (2009) 32-bit MacBook Pro using Debian Buster 
(Libreoffice DEB packages from Debian Buster backports).

Importing a semi-transparent SVG graphics in Writer, the transparent area is display 
non-transparent (solid colour), which is really confusing, as it is displayed correctly in Writer 
on a newer Linux box.  In the print preview the transparency /is/ displayed, it is printed 
properly, and a PDF export works as expected.

I guess the “wrong” display is caused by the old graphics card (NVIDIA 9400, using the free nouveau 
driver), and I observe the same effect in Virtualbox VM's running Buster (both 32 and 64 bit).  Is 
this assumption correct?  And would it be possible to get transparency working even on such old or 
virtualised systems?

Thanks in advance,
