I just saw your post in the mailing list: Abiword in Lubuntu 16.04 LTS -
how to get rid of flickering and the responses.
Hi Rafael, Simon and Julien,
What about switching the default theme for Lubuntu in 16.04.1 LTS so
that it will come with a working Abiword? In other words to do the
work-around instead of leaving it to the end user?
Or will that break some other functionality?
A way to do what you want for just Abiword without switching Lubuntu's
default theme, would be to edit its
Exec= line in /usr/share/applications/abiword.desktop
Exec=bash -c 'GTK_THEME=Adwaita abiword %U'
