How to enable appmenu support for LibreOffice 3.5.4 in Ubuntu

If you have read my previous post, you may have noticed there is no appmenu support for for LibreOffice 3.5.4 after executing my instructions.

Well, that was my mistake and here is how to fix it (I'm so sorry):

sudo apt-get install lo-menubar

That's all. Now your shiny new LibreOffice 3.5.4 should have appmenu as expected.

Install LibreOffice 3.5.4 in Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin

OpenOffice Logo

The new LibreOffice 3.5.4 comes with up to 100% performance improvements and is de facto the fastest free and open source office suite.

If you have Ubuntu 12.04 installed you have no chance to get this new LibreOffice version, unless you add some extra repo.
And here is how:

1. Purge previous version:
sudo apt-get purge openoffice*
sudo apt-get purge libreoffice*

2. Add extra repo:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa
sudo apt-get update

3. Install newest version:
sudo apt-get install libreoffice language-support-en

4. Enjoy

I personally prefer both and use hibernate in most cases. So, I missed Hibernate. Here is how I get it back.
