Running 12.04 64bit Ubuntu, and after installing Libreoffice 4.1 from the official ppa, i get this integration problem upon opening already existing text documents, them being .doc, .docx or .odt. Anyone have a solution?




Yes. 4.1 doesn't seem to play with this version of Unity. You need to downgrade to 4.0, then download the menubar folder into a LO folder. If I try exactly this with 4.1 it crashes every time I touch the menu bar. But 4.0 seems fine.

See this thread:


I downloaded it from: http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package...sed/lo-menubar

On 12.04 wit LO (download from archive), it works for me if I just copy whole folder CONTENTS/usr/lib/libreoffice/share/extensions/menubar to...well /usr/lib/libreoffice/share/extensions/ . no reset necessary. was looking for a quick solution, didn't want to reinstall 4.xx from repos. which may be 'cleaner', but heij... it works o_O
