I am converting this to a question as I couldn't reproduce in Ubuntu 10.10 23 or 64 bit.

Please don't use pastebin, its very nature means your information posted there may be lost.

In my test I removed all openoffice* packages found by a search on "openoffice", and also these: python-uno uno-libs3 ure ttf-opensymbol. However this is done automatically when using a package manager and installing LibreOffice as indicated here:

Could you indicated exactly what steps you followed ? Thank you.

And seeing that there is a Lucid bug for this, just thought it was a packaging error. Thanks for checking this issue.
