Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 447066
OO Menu bar mangled with a certain font rendering setting
Last modified: 2008-05-18 15:12:33 EDT
Description of problem:
I upgraded from Fedora 8 to Fedora 9 using the DVD media. The menu bar in
openoffice.org was mangled. Nothing could be read on the menu bar. This problem
occurred only to one user on the system. Removing the .openoffice.org2.0
directory did not help. I also tried uninstalling and installing openoffice.org.
Finally, I managed a work around by setting "Subpixel smoothing (LCDs)" option
in the Font tab on Appearance settings window. The problem exists with the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa|grep office
How reproducible: 100%
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click System->Preferences->Look and Feel->Appearance. Select Monochrome
2. Set Font Sizes to 13
3. Set screen resolution to 1280x1024. The system was running proprietary
kmod-nvidia driver from livna on Fedora 8. This driver is removed in F9. Also I
had to set the mouse configuration in xorg.conf manually to get it working.
The menus are not readable.
The menu should be readable.
Additional info: contact me if required,

Same problem on a clean install of Fedora 9. Changing font size doesn't fix the
problem, but turning on subpixel rendering does.
