The TDF version of LibreOffice isn't detected by bibus. Which means no
bibliography, which is pretty much a deal-breaker.

To create documents with a bibliography, LyX/LaTeX and BibTeX is
_significantly_ better than any word-processor.

Yes, LyX and BibTeX are very useful LaTex based layout and typesetting
utilities, but depend on auxiliary and style files--external to the text and
markup otherwise performed in a text editor or word processor. Excellent
results, but challenging to master.

In line citation management "WYSIWYG" function of commercial products (e.g.
EndNote or Scholars Aid) or open source projects like  Bibus or Zotero meet
the majority of use cases with integration into the common word processors
(MS Word, OO Writer, LibO Writer).

Regards OP's failures with  Bibus - IIRC, it has PyUno Python, wxpython and
wxWidgets version dependencies for use with OpenOffice/LibreOffice Writer,
and it looks as if its development has stalled (last release v1.5 in Oct.
2009).  Resolving problems with current OO/LibO releases may require a
refresh or rebuild of the Bibus extension.

Perhaps review functionality of Zotero as a currently maintained alternative
to Bibus that will function with current OO/LibO releases?
