This is a problem of Launchpad PPA for LibreOffice packages. Please turn to package maintainers.

I, also, ran into this same issue.

So I just learned something interesting. I have always used the LibreOffice official repositories so that I have the up-to-date version whenever possible (mostly for testing purposes, and somewhat because the default packages that come on distros tend to be a bit behind)... but this last Mint 18.2 update conflicted with my LibreOffice install. LibreOffice would open, but it looked like some kind of a 'snap' package, as it did not pick up on the beautiful Mint theming. Everything SEEMED functional, but it was very hard on the eyes.

At first, I didn't understand what had happened. I knew there was some kind of 'warning' message when I applied the system updates, but it didn't seem to be anything out of the ordinary.

I tried googling it first, and came up empty as to why LO suddenly looked... awful.

I tried un-installing, purging, re-installing. Same results. I tried disabling my LO repos and going back to the default Mint repos for LO. LO failed to open at all. It just thought about opening for a few moments, and then nothing. (Turns out it was looking for a package and couldn't find it, and thus, aborted the opening process. Removing the .config folder for LibreOffice resolved this). LibreOffice had simply lost it's beautiful Mint flavor.

Purely by messing about and looking at all the available LibreOffice packages, I found the missing key:

I was missing the package: libreoffice-gtk3

Apparently, this package is what allows LibreOffice to pick up on your Distro's theme.

There is one for GTK, GTK2, and GTK3.

I re-enabled my Official LibreOffice repos, restored my .config LibreOffice folder, and am now back running at full steam where I left off with no issues.
