Thread: LibreOffice scroll bar freeze

  1. #1

    Default LibreOffice scroll bar freeze

    Earlier today I accepted all the updates to my SuSE system, and now the LibreOffice horizontal scroll bar will not work. It is frozen in Writer and in Calc you can move it once from its start position, and then it becomes stuck. The problem is not confined to SuSE. A similar problem is mentioned half way through a slackware forum at

    Alien Pastures

    Please, how can I undo these updates?

    My system is:-
    Linux 2.6.37.6-0.7-default i686
    System: openSUSE 11.4 (i586)
    KDE: 4.6.00 (4.6.0) "release 6"
    LibreOffice 3.4.2 OOO340m1 (Build:1206)

    I think that one of these updates caused the problem, but I dont know which and I dont know how to revert to an earlier version of Libre Office.

    Hi,

    a workaround

    hitting SHIFT and moving the mouse scroll wheel moves the horizontal scroll bar around.

    it has been reported and will be worked, see
    https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=718357

    other work-arounds:

    -problem only seen in KDE4, (run gnome, lxde, etc)

    -use YaST to remove libreoffice-kde4 "package and now the problem is
    gone. A shame though that I end up with libre office looking like a mid
    90-ies application"

    -run LO portable 3.4.3 in wine

    -use the arrow keys to scroll back and forth

    -install the vanilla version from LibreOffice website

    Thank you DenverD JJMT for your help.

    I have discovered that the mouse middle (roller) button will work both horizontal and vertical scroll bars, so that is my work around. The left hand mouse button will only work the vertical scroll bar. The same bug has also been reported as duplicate bugs here:-

    The same problem. I have a horizontal scroll works if you click the mouse wheel instead of the left mouse button.

    I had a similar issue - somewhere saw this fix:
    System Settings-Application Appearance-Style, set Widget Style to GTK+ Style
    It solves the horizontal bar issue, at least for me (11.4_6a, KDE 4.7.2)

    I also note that not all of the LibreOffice packages installed have updates available, and some of those are removed due to dependencies. I don't know whether this matters in regard the topic, but I didn't update as I was uncertain to what it involved.
    OpenSuSE 13.1, KDE 4.11.5, 64bit
    Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3, AMD FX8350, NVIDIA GTX 550 Ti, RME HDSP9632, 16GB HyperX Kingston DDR3, Samsung 840-Pro SSD 128GB, WD Desktop Black 1TB, Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000 750GB

    If you use qtcurve than you can install libreoffice-gnome to have a
    "newer look".
