Re: [libreoffice-users] impress - slide transitions not working

Apologies for following up my own post and for top-posting.

I've been struggling with this and the lack of response. I've now found it's a long-standing problem, back to 2014/2015 and the early 5.x versions. 4.x seems to have been OK. It seems poor that the dev's haven't addressed what is clearly, for some, a long-standing show-stopper regression :-{

I have found that 6.0.x on my 32 bit laptop works fine. I'm wondering if it's a specific 64-bit issue.

Does anyone have a fix that I've missed please?

Hi all.

I'm having a bit of trouble with some slide transitions.

I've got 3 computers that all behave differently. They all run linux mint, with varying versions of LO installed.

When fed the exact same slide show, with my chosen "dissolve" or "fine dissolve" I find that:

1. on my 64-bit desktop machine (LO mint 18.3) the transition does the dissolve, but with a nasty flicker to a white screen. Other transitions are jerky. nvidia graphics

2. On my 32-bit lappy (LO version not to hand, but still mint 18.3) all works perfectly (intel graphics)

3. On a second 64-bit, freshly installed machine (LO 19.2), the "fade" transition is simply a sharp cut. Intel graphics of some sort. Some transitions do work, eg dissolve, push; some fail, eg fade, iris, cube)

I'd originally put #1 down to the driver, but it's as bad with either nvidia's X driver, or nouveau. #3 is bad, as this was to be my backup machine for a presentation next weekend, in case the (elderly) laptop failed.

I'm going to try to downgrade the LO6 to see if that helps, but meanwhile, any thoughts please?


(BTW the other working transitions aren't really appropriate for the particular environment. Otherwise they'd be a workround.)
