After upgrading to LibreOffice 5 on Ubuntu 15.04 the foreground and background are the same color: white on white. The forground color cannot be changed. I can change the background color but the letters are still invisible.

No characters appear when typing in Writer. I can save the document and open it in, for instance Abiword and see the characters, but not in LibreOffice. Version Build ID:00m0 (Build:2) Locale: en_US (en_US.UTF-8), Ubuntu 15.04, kernel 3.19.0-28-generic
