I installed the 6.2.5 packages this morning (running -current64 and Plasma5). Started LO to change the default icon scheme as Eric recommends but after about five seconds LO crashes. Running from the command line I get -


XXXX@missi:~$ libreoffice

X Error: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes) 8
Major opcode: 42 (X_SetInputFocus)
Resource id: 0x6000197
X Error: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes) 8
Major opcode: 42 (X_SetInputFocus)
Resource id: 0x6000197

xxxx@missi:~$

Anyone have any ideas on the cause or is anyone else seeing this??

Thought to go to .config and delete everything under libreoffice. Did that and it runs long enough to change the default icon setting to default and then after I click apply and finally OK it crashes with the same error as above.

On slackware-current, I have big issues with the menus from 6.2.5, within both standard KDE4 and latest Plasma5.

The issues manifests as transparent menus and menu bar (which grabs something from video memory) and the menu items become blue on hoover, and stays this way.

Tested on Intel HD2000 built in a Intel Pentim G870 on socket 1155, AMD motherboard with Radeon HD4250, discrete video card Radeon R5 240 and Radeon R3 built in Athlon 5350 on socket AM1

With all respect, but looks like Mr. Hameleers tested this build exclusively with the proprietary drivers from NVIDIA, because it is hard to believe that he does not noticed those obnoxious issues which manifests on Mesa usage, no matter which video card you use.

Working fine here, so far.

I did Eric's recommended "tweak" a while back, when the problem first manifested itself. Since then the tweak seems to have carried over fine - I update via slackpkg+.

I'm using Intel graphics on my main desktop and laptop, and AMD (open source drivers) on my secondary desktop.

Yes, but you use the stable 14.2 version or the slackware-current?

To the contrary, I never test my packages on a computer with NVidia (or AMD) proprietary drivers. Only inside a QEMU KVM and on my laptop with an Intel GPU supported by the kernel.
In QEMU I only test in XFCE, and on my laptop I only test on Plasma5. I do not test on KDE4.

I'm running Nvidia GTX-970 and their 430.26 proprietary (blob) driver. So looks like it's probably Nvidia related. After I saw that a couple of "x" packages were updated in today's updates I rebuilt nvidia-kernel package.

Similar issues and possible fix on Slackware64 14.2 KDE4 mentioned here:
Code:
https://alien.slackbook.org/blog/libreoffice-6-2-5-packages-available/#comments
I'm having no problems with 6.2.5 on Slackware64 14.2 with KDE4
- Switched icon theme from Breeze to Elementary while still on 6.2.4
- KDE Integration not installed
- A few dictionaries and l10n language support files installed
- AMD A10-7800 Radeon R7

I am able to confirm that removing the package "libreoffice-kde-integration" fixed my issues within Plasma5, at least.

Not yet able to test this removal under KDE4, because this particular computer is in another location, so I can/will test that on evening.

EDIT: also under KDE4 this package removal fixes the issues.

Thank you LuckyCyborg. I re-upgraded to 6.2.5 sans the integration package and that fixed my problem as well. Thanks too to Eric for the info and building 6.2.5. It looks great.
