I have installed the latest version of libreoffice a while ago and I just updated ubuntu 12.04. When I opened the libreoffice document, the text in the globalmenu is missing and you only see the highlight color selecteing the menu where the text would be.
Exactly the same problem here, after doing an update just an hour ago. Tried deleting my user profile and also uninstalling,
apt-get autoclean and reinstalling, but nothing seems to work. It still doesn't work when I install the Spanish language pack, which I hoped might restore the texts.
UPDATED: This seems to be the same as reported in question 297743, which was closed as it corresponds to a bug report.
