Created attachment 1592931 [details]
Screenshot after step 4.

Description of problem: User interface broken.  Dropdown menus have transparent backgrounds, making them almost unreadable when superimposed on top of spreadsheet.  Menu bar also has incorrect background.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 6.2.5.2-1.

How reproducible:  Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open LibreOffice calc.
2. Hover over "Edit" menu.
3. Hover over "View" menu.
4. Click on "View".
5. Click on "Page Break".

Actual results:
1. Spreadsheet opens.  Menu bar has background from underlying wallpaper.
2. "Edit" background turns opaque blue.
3. "View" background turns opaque blue.  "Edit" background remains opaque blue.
4. Transparent dropdown menu appears on top of spreadsheet.  Spreadsheet shows through the menu, rendering both menu and underlying part of spreadsheet almost unreadable.  [See attached screenshot.]
5. Spreadsheet displays in Page Break view.  Menu closes.  "Edit" and "View" backgrounds remains blue.

Expected results:
1. Spreadsheet opens.  Menu bar has light gray background.
2. "Edit" background turns opaque blue.
2. "Edit" background returns to light gray.  "View" background turns opaque blue.
3. Opaque dropdown menu with light gray background covers portion of spreadsheet.  Second item is "Page Break".
4. Spreadsheet displays in Page Break view.  Menu closes.  "View" background returns to light gray. 


Additional info:
Works as expected in version 6.2.2.2-4.  Failure occurs after upgrade to version 6.2.5.2-1.

What do help->about say in line 3 (copy and paste it in here, line should end with "UI render: something; VCL: something"

Comment 2 Michael Fischer 2019-07-23 20:15:30 UTC
CPU threads: 8; OS: Linux 5.1; UI render: default; VCL: kde4;

Comment 3 Caolan McNamara 2019-07-23 20:22:49 UTC
The gtk3 or kf5 one probably works better. I doubt there's going to be any more work on the kde4 one at this point.

Comment 4 Michael Fischer 2019-07-23 20:41:19 UTC
Installing libreoffice-kf5 and erasing libreoffice-kde4 fixed my problem.  Thank you so much for suggesting the switch to kf5.

Should package libreoffice-kde4-1:6.2.5.2-1.fc30.x86_64 perhaps be removed, and upgrading libreoffice-kde4 to version 6.2.5.2-1 and beyond automatically switch to libreoffice-kf5?

Comment 5 Caolan McNamara 2019-07-24 09:20:07 UTC
Current situation in F30 is per decision in bug #1647233 In upstream LibreOffice 6.3 KDE4 support is removed and we're trying the new KDE5 support as KDE4 replacement in F31

Thanks again!
