Remove the previous version of LibreOffice:

sudo apt-get remove libreoffice-core

I extracted the package you downloaded and navigate through the terminal to the DEBS folder.

Once there:

sudo dpkg -i * .deb

Then navigate again through the terminal to the folder called "desktop-integration" located inside the DEBS folder.

Once there:

sudo dpkg -i * .deb

If you want to reuse the version found in the official Ubuntu repositories, enter the following command in the terminal:

sudo apt-get remove libreoffice3.5 * libobasis * sudo apt-get install libreoffice-base-core libreoffice-calc libreoffice-common libreoffice-core libreoffice-draw libreoffice-emailmerge libreoffice-gnome libreoffice-gtk libreoffice-help-en-us libreoffice -impress libreoffice-math libreoffice-ogltrans libreoffice-style-human libreoffice-writer

    I need help, I don't want to go back to W $ or M $ Off ...
    I am happy with LinuxMint-13-KDE-64 and I use LibreOffice so far everything is fine but it happens that when I print directly from Writer where I have placed color or B&W images I get a black box, but if I do in W $ with M $ Of if it prints correctly, I have searched all the sites and I cannot find how to make it print the corresponding image instead of a box full of black ink.
    Try to convert the document to PDF but still, instead of the image a black box appears.
    Please, if someone has a manual or a guide, I beg you to help me, otherwise, to my regret, I will have to go back to the hateful W7 and M $ Off because my work is based on the things that I write and print.

    Doesn't it update automatically? : S

    It does not support update if it is not from version 3.4.5. Look at the menu file / recent documents, many do not appear, others do, from what I have read they do not know why this happens, it may be preferable to wait for version 3.5.1 that will have corrected the bugs of this first release.
