I need to obtain a bubble chart of categorized data, similar to this one:

My data looks like:

forType_label   reg_label   forType_n   reg_n   area
broadleaves     AL      1       1   20
broadleaves     AU      1       2   15
broadleaves     PA      1       3   30
coniferous      AL      2       1   7
coniferous      AU      2       2   6
coniferous      PA      2       3   9

I managed to get the bubble chart and, setting manually the chart axis options, to shown only integer numbers, but how can I shown labels (forType labels and reg labels)?

This question should not be closed, at least not with the label "the question is answered, right answer was accepted". As indicated in the comment to the answer, it doesn't solve the problem. The true is that it is not possible to do what the question asks, and a bug as been filled in the libreoffice bug tracker.

While editing the chart. Menu/Insert/Data Labels.
or right-click on a bubble, insert Data Labels.
And mark show value as number

Thank you mariosv. This make the value appearing on the bubbles, but it doesn't solve my main problem that is how to display labels on the axis? E.g. I don't want "1" and "2", I want display "Broad-leaves" and "Coniferous" on the horizontal axis and "AL","AU" and "PA" on the vertical axis.
