LibreOffice Writer always opens behind other windows, with two different user logins. The other LibreOffice apps don't do this, nor do non-LibreOffice apps. Changing Application- or Window-specific settings has had no effect so far. This has been happening for many moons. Ideas?
      Code:
$ dpkg -l '*libreoffice*' | grep ii
ii  libreoffice-base                      1:4.4.3-1    amd64        office productivity suite -- database
ii  libreoffice-base-core                 1:4.4.3-1    amd64        office productivity suite -- shared library
ii  libreoffice-base-drivers              1:4.4.3-1    amd64        Database connectivity drivers for LibreOffice
ii  libreoffice-calc                      1:4.4.3-1    amd64        office productivity suite -- spreadsheet
ii  libreoffice-common                    1:4.4.3-1    all          office productivity suite -- arch-independent files
ii  libreoffice-core                      1:4.4.3-1    amd64        office productivity suite -- arch-dependent files
ii  libreoffice-draw                      1:4.4.3-1    amd64        office productivity suite -- drawing

Personally, I can't reproduce that (it opens in the foreground, just not at a very smart location on the screen) - but maybe there is stale information somewhere. Especially KDE offers many application specific window options, perhaps take a look at those.

Purging Writer had no effect. Now after dist-upgrade I'm having the issue with all LibreOffice apps. They all open almost always in the background but now also occasionally in the foreground. I can't find any pattern to the behavior. I've also tried modifying window manager settings in KDE and renaming the ~/.config/libreoffice folder. Also haven't seen any change modifiying Application-specific settings so far, such as "Keep Above" under "Arrangement & Access".
