View Full Version : [kubuntu] LibreOffice hides taskbar ?

September 10th, 2012, 02:52 AM
I have a few apps going , Kubuntu desktop. Task bar is visible. Then I go into LibreOffice spreadsheet, and NO task bar, not visible at all.

The only way to navigate is to use a "Windows" trick of ALT-tab.

There is only a 'Close window' icon up the top right hand corner, no minimise and no maximise buttons.

Then I notice it is the same with the other LibreOffice apps (tried writer, same problem).

How did you install Kubuntu?

Installed Ubuntu 12.04, then installed Kubuntu-desktop

Can see a bug here (https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/888743)

If LibreOffice was installed prior to you installing kubuntu-desktop then I'm guessing you're missing some necessary support file(s). I can only suggest you run sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade from within kubuntu to see if that helps.

Ubuntu users may be in a position to help you more with this...
Good luck.

I just noticed your edit. If the bug IS in the lo-menubar package then removing lo-menubar should solve your problem.

Okay, thanks for the tip.

I was trying to report the bug, and pressed Ctrl-F2, and all of a sudden LibreOffice now is seen on the task bar, and it has the 3 buttons on the top right hand side (minimise, maximise, close).

Possibly I pressed some other keys that reset window defaults ??

Strange !!
