LibreOffice isn't picking up KDE UI elements or theme on my Plasma 5 Fedora 20 system. I think it is using values from .gtkrc-2.0 .gtkrc-2.0-kde4. Usually after installing libreoffice-kde LibreOffice uses KDE themes and UI elements.

Update:- I am using Version: Build ID:

Themes for KDE v4.x have been essentially unsupported in LO v4.x. Refer this question. Bug fdo#48611 is the related report (the others listed have been marked as duplicates).

EDIT: Now fixed for LO v5.1.

At least I could use Oxygen theme and dialogs with libreoffice-kde.

sourcing export OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP="kde4" brings back KDE theme and UI elements on Plasma 5.

I created a file ~/.config/plasma-workspace/env/ with the following content

export OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP="kde4"

Make file executable

chmod 755 +x ~/.config/plasma-workspace/env/
