I installed libreoffice 4 from the supply debs in their website, because it didn't have unity integration I decided to completely uninstall it. Today I saw the ppa has libreoffice 4 with support for unity, so I installed it from the ppa.
The problem I have is with the icons in the side-bar once the programs are launched, calc and writer but not the main libreoffice. I can see the icons in the dash, but not in the side bar, I only see a gear and there's no context menu for them either, just the option to lock or quit, not even the name of the program.
I followed this guide: http://forum.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewtopic.php?f=101&t=48319#p227823 It actually works, every time I open any of the applications, the icons are correctly displayed and also their context menu, but as soon as I delete the desktop icons, the gear is back again without context menu. I don't want to have libreoffice icons on my desktop.
I also tried just drag and drop from the dash to the side bar, but when I start calc or writer, a new gear icon appears instead of using the already displayed libreoffice icon.
Does anybody has any idea of what's going on?
