I have just installed LibreOffice 4.1 on my Toshiba laptop running Lubuntu 13.10, and I am unable to see the start center or math/formulas shortcut to appear in the drop down from the start menu (start menu>office>LO shortcuts).

The only way to get LO to open from the start menu is by opening a terminal and typing:

$ libreoffice 4.1

and to get math/formulas to open by itself I have to type:

$ libreoffice 4.1 -math

Is there any way to get these program shortcuts to show after installation on Lubuntu 13.10?

Figured out how to get the Start Center and Math/Formulas app to show in the office menu shortcuts by using the Menu Editor under the start menu>system tools> Menu Editor. From there, I have been able to add/"make menu not hidden" these missing shortcuts from the office start menu.

For anyone that is having this issue, please check your Menu Editor or install one to be able to do so.

The Menu Editor that I have on Lubuntu is: MenuLibre v13.01.4
