    Ubuntu Menu Bar Option for LibreOffice


    I'm using LibreOffice rather than the version included with Ubuntu 12.04LTS for various reasons, but one thing I would like to know is whether or not there is an add-on (pretty sure there used to be one for LibreOffice 3.5) that will let LibreOffice use the Ubuntu menu systems and the Heads Up Display (which is helpful for the commands I don't often use).

    Does anyone know if this exists and, if so, where I can download it?

    I'm also using in Ubuntu 12.04.2 and have the global menu. It came with
    How did you install Libreoffice As for the older add-on, it was lo menu.
    If I were you, I would do a reinstall of libreoffice but first purge you existing configuration.
    sudo apt-get purge libreoffice*
    then add the following ppa.
    sudo add- apt-repository ppa: libreoffice/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install libreoffice
    This ppa will give you libreoffice 4.0X and give you the updates as well.
