This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

Context :
  Hw = Laptop PC MSI GL72-6QF-813XFR, with a 256 Go SSD
  BIOS and Firmware up to date (March 11, 2018)
  OS : Kubuntu Bionic Beta 1, french configuration (on SSD)
  Installation : nominal (PPA : none beyond the nominal proposed)
  Installations beyond the nominal installation : wine-stable, winetricks and playonlinux

Bug generation : trivial (if you have such a DVD !) : try to install, then to run, MS Ofice 2010 (from DVD) through PlayOnLinux.
Note that exactly the same installation applied procedure succeeds within Trusty environment.

Bugs :
1. Since the product key entering, no keyboard feedback is provided, so we have to blindly answer to about 5 questions.
2. When we launch any of MS Office applications, menus are all unreadable (also white / white).

Package : playonlinux

This bug reporting is inappropriate within "Rip" package, but it's so hard to find the true path to report such a bug (I read many pages and tried many ways, but none provides me the solution). Could somebody help me ?
