Simple: you didn't download and thus tell dpkg to install the dependencies it requires, but you shouldn't do this, you should use the PPA and §apt-get§ or §aptitude§ to install, since you're on Debian/Ubuntu:

1) sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa

2) sudo apt-get update or sudo aptitude update (recommended)

3)

sudo apt-get install libreoffice libreoffice-accessodf libreoffice-dmaths libreoffice-help-ja libreoffice-nlpsolver libreoffice-ogltrans libreoffice-pdfimport openclipart-libreoffice

or

sudo aptitude install libreoffice libreoffice-accessodf libreoffice-dmaths libreoffice-help-ja libreoffice-nlpsolver libreoffice-ogltrans libreoffice-pdfimport openclipart-libreoffice

(recommended)

and add mozilla-libreoffice if you're using Firefox.

If you get complaints about conflicting packages, you need to sudo apt-get remove PACKAGE_NAMES or sudo aptitude remove PACKAGE_NAMES (recommended) them if the program doesn't automatically suggest it.

If every newer version is bad, report all this through https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=LibreOffice and try earlier versions. Here's how:

1) Add the repos for specific versions (a single line to do it automatically, you just need to hit Enter 4 times in a row with little pause in between):

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-4-2; sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-4-3; sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-4-4; sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-prereleases

2) List the version names for available packages (all of the packages installed above by my command, with apt and aptitude (recommended) variants):

apt-cache showpkg libreoffice libreoffice-accessodf libreoffice-dmaths libreoffice-help-ja libreoffice-nlpsolver libreoffice-ogltrans libreoffice-pdfimport openclipart-libreoffice

aptitude versions libreoffice libreoffice-accessodf libreoffice-dmaths libreoffice-help-ja libreoffice-nlpsolver libreoffice-ogltrans libreoffice-pdfimport openclipart-libreoffice

3) and once you know the version string, which should be the same for all packages that relate to each other closely. Those that don't closely relate to each other don't have same version string:

sudo apt-get install PACKAGE_NAME=VERSION_STRING

or

sudo aptitude install PACKAGE_NAME=VERSION_STRING

(recommended)

*) I don't know whether you can install another version to replacing previously installed version automatically, so you should

sudo apt-get remove PACKAGE_NAME:VERSION_STRING

or

sudo aptitude remove PACKAGE_NAME:VERSION_STRING

before going for another version
