    Re: Autocorrect not working in LibreOffice

    Yes, I saw the same thing - I just attributed to the fact that I have my UI elements scaled up. In any case, it should be fixed soon. There's a PPA with the fixed GTK+3.0, and it works fine here. See...

    Re: Autocorrect not working in LibreOffice

    I think the size difference might depend on if you increased your font sizes or display scaling in your GTK theme. I have an eye problem that requires me to do both, and when I launch LO with that...

    Re: Autocorrect not working in LibreOffice

    Hey, that works! Menu/Toolbar/StatusBar text doesn't take on the DE-customized fonts, but the main editing area is fine. Until the fixed GTK+3.0 reaches the repo, this is a decent workaround. Thanks...

    Re: Autocorrect not working in LibreOffice

    I think it has something to do with the GTK stack - the problem does not exist in Kubuntu 21.04. The same issue occurred in Fedora Workstation, which is Gnome, a month or so ago, and after a couple...

    I really don't think it's a problem with LO. I reinstalled an older version that worked perfectly 2 weeks ago, and it has the same problem. In my Fedora experience, it resolved itself in a system...

    Autocorrect not working in LibreOffice

    Hi All,

    There seems to be a problem with autocorrect in LibreOffice in Hirsute/MATE. There is no auto-capitalization of first words in a sentence, and the replacement table is not being...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Unbuntu is laggy, choppy and general preformance is terrible

    OP has a specific issue - Ubuntu 20.04 is not laggy, choppy, etc. If he really wants help, he'll post details and engage in some troubleshooting, and we'll get to the bottom of it.
  11. Re: sudo apt autoremove just bricked my machine - why?

    First of all, you didn't 'brick' your machine. You broke the OS. Bricking means that something has borked the firmware on your computer or device to the point that nothing can be done with it - it's...
