YES, it works for you but I am not using Unity.
How many users with MATE are having the same issues?
Do anyone using KDE or the other desktop have any issues.

I know that there has been work done to make the DEB install work properly with Unity. Has there been any work to make sure it works as well with the other desktops?

That might be the issue here.
MATE and Cinnamon are the desktops for people who liked GNOME 2.x style of desktop and did not want to switch to Unity, GNOME 3.x, KDE or the others. I hate Unity and GNOME 3.x. The same reasons I hate Win8's desktop. If you read the articles, you will find many users went to Mint Linux and other distros to get away from Unity. Mint having both MATE and Cinnamon desktop versions, got a lot of users from Ubuntu. I stuck with Ubuntu, but chose MATE desktop environment.

it may be a MATE issue, or may not.
So I ask if any MATE or Cinnamon desktop users are having the same issues.

I installed LO tonight on a third computer, also with Ubuntu 13.04 and with Unity. No problems there either.

I extract them to the /home folder
then rename it to Lib
then I
    cd Lib
    cd DEBS
    sudo dpkg -i *.deb

I tend to not run an command on a folder that I am not in.
I learned that in my mainframe days as a safety feature.

So far, I have installed it on Ubuntu 12.04 and 13.04 with MATE desktop. I HATE Unity and GNOME 3.x. Been using Ubuntu since 9.04 or 9.10 for a few months till 10.04 LTS came out. I skipped 11.xx and when to 12.04 and 13.04.

13.04 gave me errors when I tried the desktop-integration install. Kept giving me errors stating it was not matching the "core" install.

The only fix I came up with, for it on 13.04 was to remove the current version of LO then install the new one over again.

I installed LO on two machines running Ubuntu 13.04 with Unity today. I always download LO from the LO site, extract it to the desktop, and then run the following commands in the terminal:
1. sudo apt-get remove libreoffice*.*
2. sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/LibreOffice_4.0.3.3_Linux_x86-64_deb/DEBS/*.deb 3. sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/LibreOffice_4.0.3.3_Linux_x86-64_deb/DEBS/desktop-integration/libreoffice4.0-debian-menus_4.0.3-3_all.deb

Everything was fine with both.

I've used this method since Ubuntu 9.04 in the days of OpenOffice, and I've never had a problem with anything missing or failing.

I just installed 4.0.3 on two systems

The 64-bit DEB install removed my extensions and the persona I has setup.
The Windows install did not do this.

Any idea way the 64-bit DEB install in Ubuntu 12.04 would remove my added items, but Windows did not?

I do not know if it is a bug, or not. If other have seen this, than it might be.
It is a little difficult to say since you did not say what version of LibreOffice you had installed on the two systems. That is likely to be important. Also from where did you download LibreOffice 4.0.3? I have installed (Debian 64 Bit) that I downloaded from the LibreOffice website. I did not notice any problems. But this might have been because I already had installed.


Version (Build ID: 0eaa50a932c8f2199a615e1eb30f7ac74279539)

I downloaded it today from the LO site, after it was announced. I try not to download RCversions.

I had a different problem with the 13.04 Ubuntu I have on my laptop, which is an issue with 13.04 [I think since it effects more than LO]. I run Ubuntu with MATE desktop environment.

But on my Ubuntu 12.04 desktop, I had the problem withthe loss of the extensions and persona. On 13.04 I did not have that issue, but an install problem until I removed all of the LO files with the Package Manager. But it kept the extensions and persona.
