Good evening and greeting from rainy London, UK
I am using Linux Mint 13 Maya / 3.2.0-23-generic
I have just uninstalled LibreOffice 3.6, using Synaptic. All went well.
I have installed LibreOffice 188.8.131.52 ,manually. All went well. No error
messages or conflicts mentioned in the terminal.
Specifically these files in the order stated:
However I am very dissatisfied with the text in the user interface.

the same word is nothing and so the letters touch each other. I have
attached a screen shot. I hope this is OK I went looking for rules

The text in the user interface is too hard to read and is very ugly.
The same problem exists in Writer, Calc, Draw, and Impress. Making the
whole of LibreOffice too hard to use.
I regret this installation as I will not enjoy using it with the text as
Any help appreciated
Look under TOOLS >> OPTIONS >> LIBREOFFIC >> VIEW. There you will see
the settings used for the LO UI. "Use System Fonts..." is probably
selected. You can change the system fonts in the Cinnamon Settings >>
Appearance >> Fonts
