LibreOffice Writer - Entire screen going black on highlight in a table
So, I installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS just a few days ago and installed all the updates. Long time Linux user, haven't used Ubuntu in years. I am running it on a Sony VAIO VGN-NW320F. Built-in intel graphics.
Here is exactly what I did to get my issue:
Load a docx into LibreOffice Writer from /tmp.
Save the docx in /home/username, with a new name, as a docx once again.
Typical "save as odt" prompt, say no, use docx.
Insert a table, start to work with the table.
Notice the entire screen is going black when highlighting.
Further investigate, if I highlight, then don't release the mouse button, it will stay black.
Release mouse button, screen returns to normal.
As far as I can tell it is happening randomly.
I am assuming the screen is actually turning off.- I am wrong, since I was able to get a screenshot of it.
So, any suggestions? I did a quick search to see that one person had this problem back in 2006, but no replies.
Thank you! If I get no where guess I'll post to the LibreOffice mailing list next.
