In libreoffice calc 3.4.3, horizontal scrollbars do not work and only 80% of their height is displayed. This is the case in dialog boxes as well as the main window.

A search indicates that this related to the Oxygen theme. I tried all of the themes in aptosid but all behaved the same. One person said that using the GTK+ theme corrected the problem for him but I do not see that theme available.

I also tried renaming ~/.libreoffice so it would create a new one; this did not help.

I see the problem on one machine with the nvidia blob and also on another with intel graphics.

No problem here. If you have libreoffice-kde installed try removing it. It can cause problems.

This issue has existed in all 3.4.x versions as far as I have seen. It affects all Libreoffice programs. There is another thread about this issue and others at http://aptosid.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&t=1719.

Another workaround is to change the Widget style under System Settings/Application Appearance/Style/Widget Style to anything other than Oxygen. Lately, I've been using the Plastique Widget style along with libreoffice-kde without problems. But this change will affect your widget style in all applications that use KDE/QT to draw them.

libreoffice-gtk integrates quite well here. I replaced libreoffice-kde which rendered libreoffice itself unusuable with my preferred oxygen theme.

If you have a middle mouse button, those mangled horizontal scrollbars will work with it, but they're ugly. Weird widget issue.

I have found that you can keep libreoffice-kde and use qtcurve widget style to fix this issue nicely. The default libreoffice widgets are ugly otherwise.

Thanks for the qtcurve hint. Everything works and it doesn't look like 1995.

Fixed? It does NOT work. We have 2 workaround so far; the best imho is the middle button trick. I want kde integration (file pick up mostly!) so disablig it removing libreoffice-kde is not a good point.
Using another gtk engine is a better choice, but is still a workaround not a solution.
The solution will arrive when libreoffice-kde and gtk-oxygen engine will work together.

Agreed. Should have said: workarounds work for me. Do you know if there is an open bug report on this?
