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. ;-)

Actually, using the -R (recursive) option can create issues if you have
multiple versions of LO installed. For example; I wish to use LO 3.3 as
a primary & so I do install from desktop-integration for that. However,
I also have 3.4.x installed & don't really want those menu items to take
over the 3.3 menu items, so instead I create a menu launcher to the 3.4
general launcher and do not install the 3.4 desktop-integration .deb.

Also, be aware that if you forget to capitalize the '-R' and instead put
'-r' you can run into issues.
'-r' is for:
 -r, --remove, -P, --purge package...|-a|--pending
see: man dpkg
