So, what do I do? First of all I have installed Synaptic from the
Ubuntu repositories using
sudo apt-get install synaptic. Then open Synaptic (Applications >
System Tools > Adminstration). You will have to enter your user
password to open this program. Then enter libreoffice in the Search

sure that libreoffice-common is on the removal list. When you are
satisfied, click the apply button in this window. Then close Synaptic.
Now you can go back to the desktop-integration folder. There run sudo
dpkg -i *.deb. This time there should be no error, and you should have
the LO 220.127.116.11 menu present in the Office folder. Or if you use Unity

The above DEBSdpkg command does the first part of the installation
process. To complete the process, you also need to install the
desktop integration packages. To do this, change directory to the
"desktop-integration" directory that is within the "DEBS" directory,
using the following command:

Could you let us know which version of LibreOffice you have?
GIVE this a try, if you are going from 4.0.0 or 4.0.1 to 4.0.2.
Instead of using the Terminal, just run the file from the file manager
[Places]. The should bring up the Ubuntu Software Center/Manager.
Sometimes it fixes the "menu" issues I once in a while get.
The only time I have to do that is when upgrading a major version
change. 4.0.1 to 4.0.2 should not need that.
Yes Ubuntu upgrade from 12.04 to 12.10 replaces your installed
LibreOffice with the version they use 3.6.4 or something like that. You
will have to remove the previous package of LibreOffice then. Also is
you had 3.6.5 installed and wanted to upgrade to 4.0.x, you will need to
do that as well.
If you f\go from 4.0.1 to 4.0.2, you should not have any "menu" issues.
I run 12.04. My laptops ran 12.10, but now have 13.04 on it. The
problem there is that 13.04 upgrade seems not to install all of the
modules for their version of 4.0.2. Calc modulel is installed but
Writer is not. Why that happens, I do not know, but all you need to do
in install is the rest of the modules through the Synaptic Package
Manager or through the Terminal "sudo dpkg -i *.deb".
