    Phoronix: LibreOffice Gets Flicker-Free OpenGL Transitions

    Caolán McNamara's hacking around GTK3 support in LibreOffice continues. This time, he's managed flicker-free OpenGL transitions...

    GTK3 and inspired by GNOME HIG. That's how you build a Standard Desktop

    Firefox is doing the same

      I couldn't care less even if they ripped out all animations from LO.

      What I need them to do is to introduce multithreading into LO. It's currently so unbearably slow with image-heavy documents or spreadsheets with more than 100,000 rows of data and multiple worksheets that even Google Docs or Microsoft Office Online are countless times much faster and more pleasant to use at this point of time.

      And I'm on an i7 Skylake processor.

        O que que o cu tem a ver com as calças?

        Care to explain what is the relation between flicker and the gnome HIG in this context besides shouting merda about the "standard"?

            I know, but after reading this crap 100s times it gets tiresome

              Oh, that is so nice. GTK3 though doesn't work well with KDE on X only in Wayland. KDE4 and GTK received flicker* enhanced technology with 5.3 branch, i guess this way everyone will see the superiority of GTK3.
              *Also some might not see it because menu flickering isn't a big deal but in macro editing every damn selection is killing my eyes and OpenGL on/off doesn't matter.

                Unfortunately, the "ignore user" feature doesn't work on Phoronix, although I don't know how much it would help when folks keep taking the bait. He really should be banned. He's already been banned under different account name(s).

                If banning's too extreme, every post he makes with "standard desktop" should go to a queue, or maybe just the great bit bucket in the sky.

                  GTK3 is the relation! RH is investing high profile developer resources in high profile apps like LibreOffice and Firefox. This is how it pays off.

                    Breaking news: having a big company investing money into development gets job done.

                    Next breaking news: there is no major company paying to get Qt usage in Linux.
