Steps to reproduce:
1. Press Alt-F
2. Fail to see File menu items expand
3. Use mouse to accomplish same while cursing Apple-centric testing...
Current behavior: No UI access to top-level menu when installed in Ubuntu 12.10
Expected behavior: Alt-F would open File menu items for deeper selection
Platform (if different from the browser):
Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.19 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/25.0.1323.1 Safari/537.19
Confirmed here after upgrading to Ubuntu 12.10, LibreOffice 22.214.171.124. None of the Alt+key combinations that are supposed to open top-level menus do anything.
Looks like the same symptoms as described here:
Works for me in (LO 126.96.36.199 + Ubuntu 12.04.2), however does NOT work for Pansmanser:
I am running LO 188.8.131.52 on Ubuntu 12.04 (32 bit Kernel Linux 3.2.0-38-generic-pae.)
The top menubar does not have underlined letters, and none of the former shortcut keys work.
There is also another error on Pansmanser's system (unknown if related):
I would also like to be able switch off the global menu. This version of LibreOffice seems to ignore the switch in SystemSettings-Unsettings-Windows.
isn't this a problem with Unity?
I never have problems with 'parallel' installed versions of LibreOffice (thus without sys integration).
Into a Loonix bin.
It does not work for me as well.
Pressing "alt+f" does not open menu. Also in menu bar there is no shurtcuts indicator ("there is File" and not "_F_ile").
LibreOffice Version 184.108.40.206 (Build ID: 400m0(Build:2))
x86_64 GNU/Linux, ubuntu 12.04
Not reproducible on LO 220.127.116.11, installed from LibreOffice ppa (Ubuntu 12.04.2 32bit, kernel 3.2.0-41-generic-pae), Alt-F works as expected.
As Cor Nouws said, probably it's related to Unity. Or related with any tweaking utility?

I can confirm that Alt-F not functioning when I enable Unity. Result on comment #6 is happen because I'm using Cairo-Dock (Gnome+Effects) & disable Unity.
Could you test that with Unity disabled?
I am experiencing the same issue with LibreOffice/Unity. I use two installations of LibreOffice 4.0.x:
1) Windows Vista Enterprise - LibreOffice 22.214.171.124 - this installation allows the menu shortcut keys (eg. Alt + F --> Open File Menu)
2) Ubuntu 13.04 - LibreOffice 4.0.x - this installation DOES NOT ALLOW the menu shortcut keys
This bug also appears (and has been better investigated) at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/739184.
It appears to be an integration issue with Unity/Ubuntu and a workaround (with limitations) is offered:
'WORKAROUND: Disable the global menu by removing the package "libreoffice-gtk".'
closing as NOTOURBUG here for now as per:
