I've just switched from Fedora to Arch Linux. So far, installation and all went smoothly and it looks very good :-)
However, I'm experiencing a small problem with LibreOffice, as it's not showing any text menu entries:
I've installed both German and English language packs (libreoffice-de 3.4.5-2 and libreoffice-en-US 3.4.5-2) so
my guess would be that it's some kind of locale problem. Unfortunately, I haven't been able find anything on that
particular problem anywhere. I tried resetting the user directory in .libreoffice in my home directory, but the
problem remains. Any hint would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
See our hints in the Arch LibreOffice wiki page. I guess some font package is missing.
I did check the wiki (and search the forum) before asking here. The only hint I could find there concerning fonts requires to select
some menu entries in LibreOffice itself, which will be hard to do when no text shows up.
Install ttf-dejavu and artwiz-fonts and see if that makes a difference.

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it.
Thanks so much. ttf-dejavu solved my problem, as it seems.
After playing around a bit more, I also found out that ttf-liberation
also seems to work. Not quite sure which font packages qualify for that
text menu - in any case I'll just just keep dejavu. Thanks again.
I'm around this issue too.
My daugther studies chinese and my son prefers english. Each has he(r|s) language, but the all menues are as shown here.
tt-dejavu and artwiz fonts are installed, I'm trying to add some more font, but I really doubt that will solve.
I've seen some forum blaming lib-cairo2 and some relation with gtk2 font setting, but I can't imaging where would be the right point.
I installed the missing fonts and all gone fine. For chinese would be fine some search. In my case I found ttf-arphic fonts
