No Text or fonts

I recently updated to the latest version of Libre 5, but when I open it there are no fonts or number, and when I try to open a document there is no text visible.

Please what have i done wrong?

Please try: Goto menu Tools > Options >LibreOffice > View , and disable "Use OpenGL for all rendering". Restart.

Then it is likely Look at comment#10 how to disable OpenGl.

Or try short cut Alt+F12. It should open the Options-dialog, so that you can access the settings.

It is not your fault. There are so many different systems out, that it is difficult to catch all cases in advance.

Tonybell, I revised your question above to make it better fit this site, and to help you get an answer to your question. Also gave you a bit of karma, so in the future you can edit your own question, rather than put your additional questions in an answer as you have done here. Also please at a minimum try to spell check, as others might be searching for your question too and this helps everyone. Also I think this question has been asked and answered here before, so try searching above again.
