Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've recently installed Ubuntu 12.10 and LibreOffice in this OS doesn't work correctly. Any time I click something from the menu bar (e.g. File -> Print or Save As), nothing happens. It looks like a window is appearing after my click, but is hidden somewhere.

Please help me fix it. Thanks in advance.

This will not fix the issue but might help to deal with it. When LibreOffice is opened, open the HUD menu by taping on the ALT-key. Then hide the HUD by taping on the ALT-key again. See if the menu reappears and if the buttons are functional.
