Hi Jean,

Check to see if you have the same problem on an OpenOffice worksheet. If you do, this could be graphics card... The only thing you have to do is lower the configuration under appearance preferences/Visual Effects tab (normal instead of extra, or none instead of normal).

Hope this will help you out.

Sorry Rui I didn't answer any faster I had to get out of town, I just want to say that in office worksheet everything is fine.

Thank you Jean

Hi Jean,

I guess you're probably using the Gnome environment, while K3b is a KDE specific application, it works great under Kubuntu, but with the "normal" Ubuntu you have to install some KDE libraries in order to make it work.
Try this:
Go to System>Administration>Synaptic Package Manager and type "K3B" on the searchbox.
If there are any libraries missing they'll show up and you should mark all for installation.
Let me know if it works.
