LibreOffice text menu not showing up

Hi everyone,

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.

Re: LibreOffice text menu not showing up

See our hints in the Arch LibreOffice wiki page. I guess some font package is missing.

Re: LibreOffice text menu not showing up

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.

Re: LibreOffice text menu not showing up

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.

Re: LibreOffice text menu not showing up

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.

EDIT

I installed the missing fonts and all gone fine. For chinese would be fine some search. In my case I found ttf-arphic fonts
