Hi Patrick,

I've received this .rtf file (attachment) with a little picture on the left side that i can't see 
with Libre Office. I'm using Ubuntu because I hate Microsoft and all their products :) ... So, in 
conclusion, my friend (on Microsoft Office Word) opened this file and the picture was here. I'm 
asking now, could this problem be resolved in the future Libre Office release?

The problem is that many software editors, instead of sticking to the original RTF specification, have created their own added features, differences, etc, Microsoft being one of the particularly pernicious companies that has "embraced and expanded" the RTF specification. This means that it is very difficult for LibreOffice and other RTF import software to actually do this correctly, and while things are improving, the RTF filters still have (and always have had, even in the days of Sun StarOffice), bugs.

The solution to your problem might lie in using a newer version of LibreOffice, but if you are on Ubuntu 13.04 (and unless you are using the just released 13.10), then your version of LibreOffice will be somewhere between 3.6 and 4.0.2.

You should also try looking in bugzilla or Ubuntu's launchpad to see whether your particular bug has already been registered, and possibly find out whether someone is working on fixing it.
