1. completely uninstall your current LibreOffice from Application center.
2. download tar.xz from http://donate.libreoffice.org/home/dl/deb-x86_64/5.2.2/en-US/LibreOffice_5.2.2_Linux_x86-64_deb.tar.gz
3. extract all the deb files into a folder
4. navigate to folder where deb files were extracted
5. right click + open in terminal
6. run this:
Code:
sudo dpkg -i *.deb

The only good thing about Windows is that it never gives you any terminal illnesses.
Needless to say, Terminal illnesses are the only problem with Linux.

Btw, the icon set for each app is much nicer on the panel.

that's good. Probably because it reset your defaults where your theme setting had changed it. Just a warning, if you change theme your icon will probably change again too Smile

Actually, they do stay "pretty" even after switching around a few themes.

interesting. The newest version must have started adding persistent icons. I don't know because I am using WPS.
