I got the version LO 3.4.5 from the official Lo site

using sud dpkg -i *.DEB (after unpacking and going to the correct
directory. It installed correct in /opt/libreoffice. However no
links were placed in Applications/Office. The only method to run
soffice or writer is to go into the /opt/libreoffice/program

Applications/Office tab populated? and why doesn't it work

Howdy Joep,

In the directory where you installed the *.DEB packages from you
will also find the directory 'desktop-integration', switch into this
directory and re-issue the same dpkg -i command - the menu shortcuts
will be all setup for you.

...and next time you might want to use dpkg -iR ..../DEBS from the immediately superior directory to the DEBS one. From direct experience I know it installs LO correctly with Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu and my personal preference, Lubuntu. ;-)

I never used the "-iR"
It is not listed that way in the Linux install documentation, or it did not the last time I copied the instructions from LO's site.
