Ubuntu – Why doesn’t the Libreoffice icon appear on the launcher when running


When we run an application, its icon would appear on the launcher and so we can call it back after minimize it. Specially, a little triangle would keep appearing near the icon, meaning this application is running now.

However, when I open a Libreoffice file, the revelance icon doesn't appear on the launcher! What's more, when I minimize Libreoffice, I couldn't find it even through "Alt+Tab". I've tried Libreoffice 3.4 and 3.3, but the problem exists all the same.

Look, here is Libreoffice Calc running, and no icon appears on the launcher. If I minimize it, it is impossible to call it back.

You can use Super+W to show all the windows on your desktop. The LibreCalc window will appear there.

(The Super key is often the Windows logo).

There is a problem, but this is a work-around.
