Hi William,

I've done many installs of LibreOffice on Ubuntu. I always download the proper version from the LibreOffice site directly, and then extract it to the desktop, and then run the following three commands in the terminal: (These are for the 64 bit version only of LibreOffice 3.4.5. You can modify them for LibreOffice 3.5. I most likely will not move to 3.5 until 3.5.2 or 3.5.3.)
1. sudo apt-get remove libreoffice*.*
2. sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/LibO_3.4.5rc2_Linux_x86-64_install-deb_en-US/DEBS/*.deb 3. sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/LibO_3.4.5rc2_Linux_x86-64_install-deb_en-US/DEBS/desktop-integration/libreoffice3.4-debian-menus_3.4-502_all.deb

I've always needed to install the menus (line 3 above) separately from the application itself.

Just installed 3.5. The process did not return any errors, but the menus were
not updated to reflect the newly installed programs. When I installed 3.4.5
on a similar machine about a month ago, the menus did get updated. On
examination I also noted that the libreoffice3.5 executable was not linked
into /usr/bin, as the libreoffice3.4 was.

Anyone else had this problem?

Aside from adding the entries by hand, and one know of a fix?

Thanks for your time.
