Ubuntu – LibreOffice 4.0’s menu bar is not integrated with Unity

12.10hudlibreofficemenu barpanel

One of the most interesting features of the new LibreOffice 4 is the direct compatibility with Unity's Panel and HUD.

So I've just installed this wonderful new release. Everything works fine… except for that, so as an active user of every existing HUD at Ubuntu, I would like to know how to enable it, as I haven't found any info in LibreOffice's Wiki, in Ask Ubuntu or in the web in general.

Please do NOT post lo-menubar because it just won't work.

Menubar extension is working for me, but not the lo-menubar*.deb - the guts of this package. I don't know how long it would be working. This is very ugly hack and use it at your own risk. Just check it out: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=12515508#post12515508

I'm using ubuntu 12.04, libreoffice 4.0.0 and menubar 0.1.1. I don't know if this is working in 12.10, but really want to know.
