@Mishich, @Justin Solms,

Update 3: I just updated the LO 4.0 Release Notes to indicate that Unity integration is available via the official Ubuntu repositories. Only the following Ubuntu/LibreOffice combinations are currently supported:

  • Ubuntu 12.10 + LO 3.6
  • Ubuntu 13.04 + LO 4.0 (will be released in April, but you can test it now)

Update 2:

Bug is filed as fdo#61461 - Ubuntu Unity menu integration advertised in 4.0 release notes, but not present in official builds - UNCONFIRMED

I'm moving the information about PPAs to that bug report, as I think we'll get more people to pay attention to a bug report than a Question on the Ask site.

Please test the PPAs, especially the 4.0 builds, and post an update to Bugzilla re: whether unity menu integration works for you. I don't want to have to scratch that feature from the 4.0 Release Notes, and I'd much prefer to post an addendum pointing users to a PPA.

Update: There are several different Ubuntu repositories (including PPAs). Here are some notes on which packages are available right now:

I have the same problem. OMG Ubuntu site had a news splash that LO4 was ready and that menu bar integration was ready, carried a pic of it too just as in the post above mine. So I uninstalled LO3 and downloaded LO4 and no menu bar integration.

It sounds like this type of integration should be provided via the distro. As Canonical has not yet added LO support in any of its current releases, official integration might need to wait until 13.04 (as mentioned below).

The Release Notes imply that Unity integration is available at release time, but there's obviously an issue in getting that support running. I think the best hope for Ubuntu users is that someone may provide via a PPA, and may include appropriate Unity integration via that delivery channel.


In this thread, someone mentions that the integration won't work until 13.04:

Discussion on the LO User list:

I can't seem to find a particular bug for this filed in LO's bug tracker, but there may be one there already (I'll ping the QA team).

launcher items are not problem. question was about unity menu integration.

Ah, okay @Mishich. Just saw that -- running on a couple of hours of sleep.
