Ubuntu – Why no menu bar in LibreOffice


When you move your cursor to the top of the screen in Libreoffice you don't get a menu. You do for other applications like Firefox and Thunderbird but not for Libreoffice.

Best Answer


sudo apt-get remove libreoffice-gtk

It will remove the global menu bar and replace it with a basic one, but it might give you functionality. That worked for me anyways.

You can also try getting updates - there may have been a bug fix for it:

sudo apt-get update

Or just use the GUI updater.
