    Default libreoffice 3.4.2 and horizontal scrolling

    Hi,

    LibreOffice 3.4.2 (Build 203 from unstable repository) has a bug with the horizontal scrolling.
    When you have a Calc document the slider for horizontal scrolling looks damaged and is not working.
    When zooming in (or adding notes at the side of the document) in Writer, the damaged horizontal scrolling bar appears and is not working.

    I also tried to submit a bug report, but I'am to stupid for it (I failed at "the named tags" and "to bugs")

    Addition:
    I'am Opensuse 11.4. (nvidia with proprietary driver).
    Same problem on other 11.4 installation with intel graphics and also with LibreOffice on Chakra Linux.
    It seems to be a general LibreOffice problem and not depending on OpenSuse.

    The problem is the LibreOffice KDE4 integration (also in older versions there have been sometimes KDE4 integration problems).
    You have to delete libreoffice-kde4 and use the gnome integration. Then it should work.
    There is also a KDE bug report: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=277453

    For those who want to keep libreoffice-kde, there's a workaround: if your mouse has a central button or button wheel, the horizontal scrollbar works.

    I fixed this on my system (11.4_x86_64/KDE4.7.2)by changing:

    System Settings-Application Appearance-Style-Widget Style to: GTK+ Style

    But that has a global effect, with maybe unwanted effects in other apps?

    that works, but so does changing to the "cleanlooks" style, which i prefer
    to GTK+. i suspect any style but oxygen works.

    It works for the main text window but not for the horizontal scrollbar in the Navigator window...
