LibreOffice Cursor in Buster

I'm trying out a Pi4 4 as a second desktop, and so far I'm quite impressed. In LibreOffice Writer, however, no text cursor is visible, which is inconvenient to say the least. If anyone knows how/where to fix this I'd be most grateful.

(The Pi is running Raspbian Buster 2019-06-20. I'm typing this in the Raspberry Pi Forum app where the cursor is normal, so it doesn't seem to be any sort of system-wide problem. It's also normal in the text editor.)

Afternote: By changing the background colour in LibreOffice I've discovered that the cursor is there but is white. So what I need is to find out how to change the colour of the cursor.

Thank you, Jamesh. Unfortunately that hasn't worked for me; when I update/upgrade this is what I get:

The LibreOffice Cursor is still not visible.

Hmm. Odd. I'll flag this up to the guy who fixed it.

Try sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
The fact you got

Code: Select all

The following packages have been kept back:
  libreoffice-pi nodered
suggests that there are additional packages that need installing and a straight "upgrade" will not do that.
