Toolbar buttons unreadable (too light)

I’m using Libreoffice on Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS with Linux cinnamon 4.2.4 interface. My Libreoffice is unusable since the buttons are so light I simply cannot read them. See screenshot below. This issue happens in all LibreOffice products, e.g. writer/calc/impress/draw/…
Is there a way to fix this?


you are obviously using icon style “Breeze (dark)” or “Breeze (SVG + dark)”. Change Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice -> View -> Icon style: Breeze and you should get:

Tested on Ubuntu 18.04 / Cinnamon / LibreOffice 7.0.3 from Launchpad PPA.

Hope that helps.

Thank you! This fixed the issue. The icon style was: “Automatic (Breeze (SVG + dark))”. Changing this to “Breeze” resolved the issue.

Adding to the initial question, I have the same issue with Writer. It is shown in the following screenshot:

As you can see, Insert is selected and the text is white on white, so it becomes unreadable when selected. Changing the icon style doesn’t solve it. Running on a MacBook Air M1 with Big Sur.

Any solution to this?

I have the same issue with Writer

your problem is not the same issue, since you are on macOS and questioner is on Ubuntu. You problem got nothing to do with the icon style but if I recall correctly is a bug (whose bug number I couldn’t find).
