The latest update of LO to version does no longer integrate into my Ubuntu Unity desktop.

What package do I need to install to re-integrate it?

    Same issue here and looks like we need to wait for an update, I installed it from the ppa. No issues on Arch Gnome yet. – Arup Roy Chowdhury Aug 10 '16 at 16:19
  • @ArupRoyChowdhury should we report this as a bug somewhere? – orschiro Aug 11 '16 at 19:21
  • Update to latest from libreoffice ppa, all fixed. – Arup Roy Chowdhury Aug 12 '16 at 1:55

You have to install libreoffice-gnome package via Synaptic.

    This package was missing on my system. Thank you! – orschiro Aug 12 '16 at 13:01
  • I seem to be missing another package. Please have a look at my screenshot. Do you have any idea what package I am missing? – orschiro Aug 12 '16 at 18:27
  • Seems to be a shared problem: disq.us/p/1atzgnw – orschiro Aug 12 '16 at 19:44

You can work-around by installing Libreoffice 5.2 via snap:

sudo snap install --channel=beta libreoffice

Then you can run it via


I tried this, works fine.

  • Thanks! So, it's a problem that has been fixed in the latest Beta version? – orschiro Aug 10 '16 at 18:03
  • Not really, snap is different way to get software - let's say standalone packages with all dependencies within. When you updated by adding libreoffice ppa and doing apt update, you were forced to uninstall libreoffice-gtk package (dependencies hell) and it is why LO looks like in times of Windows 95. IMHO it is almost always better to wait, than install something from PPA. – iacobus Aug 10 '16 at 18:17
