In the LibO 3.4.0 (final) release notes, one interesting feature is the native integration with the Ubuntu Unity global menu.
I installed the debs from LibO_3.4.0_Linux_x86_install-deb_en-US.tar.gz, including the only desktop-integration file (libreoffice3.4-debian-menus_3.4-12_all.deb). Still the integration with global menu does not seem to occur. I switched from Unity 2d to "normal" unity, switched from Compiz to metacity window managers, temporarily uninstalled desktop-integration, even restarted...to no avail. Nothing helped. Any tips?
I run Ubuntu 11.04, on a 32bit machine.
It appears that this feature is being developed as an extension. On Ubuntu 11.04, there is a package "lo-menubar", but this depends on libreoffice 3.3, and thus you can't install it with libreoffice3.4. The development site is at https://launchpad.net/lo-menubar.
I downloaded the Ubuntu package and extracted it. I then put the main bits together in an extension (attached). It works for me with "LibreOffice 3.4.0
OOO340m1 (Build:12)", Ubuntu 11.04 64bit.

lo-menubar package reworked into extension
Install by opening libreoffice and going Tools->Extensions->Add.
RC2 is bit by bit identical with release version, so separate items in the version picker are useless. Changes have been discussed with Michael Meeks.

started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.

I can confirm that this still persists in Ubuntu 12.04 using version 3.5.0beta2

This should be adressed in LibreOffice 3.6 (included in Quantal).
