    Re: Libreoffice 4

    You can read about it here:

    http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2013/02/l...ersona-theming

    But there is one thing that I find strange and it is this

    For Ubuntu users this release finally brings support for Unity’s App Menu baked in. No more extra plugins or packages.
    I have been using 13.04 every day since development first started on it and I use Libreoffice daily. Global menu support (mouse-over on the left of the top panel to reveal menu options) has been in Libreoffice on 13.04 since version 3.6.

    Libreoffice 4 is not yet in the 13.04 repositories. I update every day and I still have Libreoffice 3.6.2.2 but it does have its File, Edit, View, Etc., menus in the top panel.

    I would like to add one more thing. Raring Ringtail uses Unity 6.12. Has any body tested Libreoffice 4 on Unity 5 that is in 12.04? I may be worrying over nothing. But things have moved on a lot in the last 12 months. If a person likes stability as well as the latest stuff than they are best advised to move with the releases as they come out.

    Regards.

    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    Installed using these directions: http://www.ubuntukiller.com/2013/02/...in-ubuntu.html But only get close, minimize, and maximize button on the top panel. The rest of the menu is still inside LibreOffice.

    No, it won't be. However there may be a PPA eventually.

    But this shouldn't worry you too much, LibreOffice 4.0 has an auto-updater in the preferences that you can turn on, it seems (haven't seen it in action yet).

    Re: Libreoffice 4

    The oposite appears to be the problem.
    I have disabled global menus in SystemSettings-Unsettings-Windows, but LibreOffice 4 appears to be ignoring this option.
    Annoying for some!

    It is out on the officialy Libre Office PPA and works brilliantly, instead of upgrading remove libreoffice via terminal command sudo apt-get --purge remove libreoffice* and then do a sudo apt-get install libreoffice
