Ok. Next stop was to upgrade libreoffice to 4.0, I couldn’t wait till raring arrives.
You need to remove/purge your current libreoffice installs.
$ sudo apt-get remove purge libreoffice-core
Pretty much followed the steps in here. ie. download and install the packages(*.debs) under the untarred libreoffice package/DEBS directory and the /DEBS/desktop_integration using
sudo dpkg -i *.debs
The dconf-tool is already available in 12.10.
So I just ran this command and changed the following.
You’ll have to click the value in “favourites”, double click with your mouse, add the ones that have libreoffice* in the below snippet. It was difficult to edit in the tool, so i modified it in gedit, and replaced the contents in dconf-tool.
