Is there any way to install lo-menubar for Libreoffice 4.1 installed from the official Libreoffice ppa in Ubuntu 12.04?

Thanks in advance!

This workaround does work partially, but has a very significant bug:

Download lo-menubar_0.1.1-0ubuntu0.1_amd64.deb for amd64 or lo-menubar_0.1.1-0ubuntu0.1_i386.deb for i386



with file roller

and sudo copy this folder:



file system/usr/lib/libreoffice/share/extensions/

NOTE: Libreoffice will integrate into global menubar, but you will only be able to access the menu via the HUD [pressing ALT on your keyboard]. Accessing via the actual menubar will cause libreoffice to crash. I have created a bug report at

It says it has some unresolved dependencies... – holden87 Aug 23 '13 at 12:54
"depends on libreoffice-gtk. Can not install, you have corrupt packages..." – holden87 Aug 23 '13 at 13:06
I get the same unresolved dependencies message as @holden87 – Greg Sep 21 '13 at 12:21

the menubar plugin is incompatibel with LO 4.1

Which menubar plugin? A plugin for Unity or for LibreOffice? And where to download? And how to install? This answer isn't very useful in its current form, I'm afraid. – gertvdijk Sep 1 '13 at 15:08
If you read his question you know what I meant, see: []. The functionality is merge in LOs GTK2 VCL plugin eg. libreoffice-gtk which is sadly DE specific. – Thaodan Sep 26 '13 at 18:35
