    Question Global menu doesn't highlight on a mouse over in Libre Office

    Not sure if anybody else noticed this but the global menu doesn't highlight to orange if you mouse over an option in it. So far this only seems to happen in Libre Office.

    EDIT: I accidently tagged this as a lubuntu issue but obviously it is an ubuntu issue with the global menubar.

    Greetings,
    Libre Office has been broken from the beginning of Raring in one form or another. Try, minimize and then maxize window and see what happens. Often it will make the menu active.

    Try adding these to your sources list

    http://ppa.launchpad.net/libreoffice/ppa/ubuntu (main)

    http://ppa.launchpad.net/libreoffice/ppa/ubuntu (main (Source Code))

    It'll add the repos for Libre Office 4

    I've been using it since before raring went final and never had any trouble with the Global Menu bar.

    Hmmm, I've added the repos and upgraded to the latest version, but my menus still don't highlight.

    Any other ideas?

    For anybody using raring, there is now a fix in proposed.

    sudo aptitude install unity/raring-proposed

    or apt-get if you don't have aptitude installed.

    The devs are asking for people to test it and feeback on Launchpad here:
