I just installed the non-repository version of 3.5.5 as an "upgrade" to

I still have Base listed, and working, in my Applications/Office menu 


Right - if you already had Base installed then an update will include


It shows:

         LibreOffice 3.5
         LibreOffice 3.5 Base
         LibreOffice 3.5 Calc
         LibreOffice 3.5 Draw
         LibreOffice 3.5 Impress
         LibreOffice 3.5 Printer Administration
         LibreOffice 3.5 Writer

in that order.

it could be the Repository version of LO and its "desktop-integration" 
package, of it could be Unity's menu system.

As I said, I use MATE for Ubuntu 12.04 and I see Base in the menu.

I use MATE so I have the "best" looking GNOME desktop that looks and 
acts like the GNOME desktop that I use for my desktop's 10.04/GNOME 
system.  I use the 10.04 system as my default system and wanted any of 
my other Ubuntu systems run either 10.04 or 12.04/MATE so it looks/works 
like I want it to do.

Also, I installed LibreOffice from the download site and not the 

I was planning on installing 3.5.5 on the laptops [Ubuntu, XP, and 
Vista] but I did not have the time.

Actually we had a tornado pass by yesterday about 1 mile north of me 
and almost hit one of our two hospitals.  They are stopping people 
from entering our city, unless you live or work here - and can prove it.

I will install 3.5.5 on my laptop in a few minutes and see what 
happens with Base.

I run Ubuntu 12.04 with Unity. Did you download LO 3.3.5 from 
LibreOffice, or are you using the Ubuntu repository version. In 
Ubuntu, the default install from Ubuntu for LibreOffice does not 
include Base. It can be added separately through the software center. 
Be careful also not to mix the two versions, the one from the 
repository and the one from LibreOffice directly.

I have just installed libreoffice 3.5.5 on my lately upgraded Mint
system (Maya). When I now start LO the entry for base doesn't appear.
On the other hand, writer, impress, calc, etc. DOES appear. Any idea
what might be the cause?
