The problem with the language selector in Abiword is solved :-)
But a new bug has appeared, this time affecting the graphics.
See this thread at the Ubuntu Forums:
'Abiword and Lubuntu 16.04 Graphics problem'
and this bug report at Launchpad:
'AbiWord text cursor starts to flicker after adding some text'
vasa1 at the Ubuntu Forums found a workaroud in his Openbox system:
*Change to the gtk theme Adwaita*
when it is available. I found that several other themes work too without
flickering (but not Lubuntu-default and Lubuntu-dark-panel).
Some of these themes render the text black in black background for
marked text, others render the text dark but visible.
Start Abiword and edit a file. If it starts flickering, select
Menu -- Preferences -- Customize look and feel
- Select another theme alias 'widget style'
- Press the button 'Apply' and watch what happens in the Abiword window.
Edit and do things to check how it works with this new theme, and stay
with a theme that works for you.
For example the first one in the list, Clearlooks, works for me.
