I am using Linux Mint 19. When displaying slides the screen flickers 3 times. I tried LibreOffice for Windows. No problems. Slides displayed with no screen flickers. Why is this happening with Linux?

LibreOffice Impress is a little buggy. I will continue to use Office365 PowerPoint.

Thanks for the reply. There appears to be no help at the links you mentioned. In searching Google for a solution it appears this problem with Impress continues to be a problem for quite sometimes. No one has offered a solution. I need a program that is reliable and stable since I will doing 8 presentations. PowerPoint meets my needs at the moment. I hope the Open Source programmers read this forum and see the exists with Impress.

I use Linux Mint too with Nvidia Gt1030 graphic card. Which version of LO do you use ?. Could you tell us some details about your graphics card, is it dual screen ? driver used (nvidia / nouveau / intel HD graphics / etc ) ? VGA/HDMI output ? I noticed nothing about this. Do you use transition animation between slides ? If yes, try to desactivate them.

Hi, had the same issue.

Apparently there is a workaround to minimise flickering.

Go in Tools > Options > Libreoffice Impress > General and uncheck Use background cache

It worked for me.
