I am regularly using Libreoffice Calc, (the spreadsheet), in TDE R14.0.4 in 
Debian 8.7, with no problems at all.  Their file picker is perhaps not perfect, 
but it is FAR faster than the KDE4 file picker that I used for 6 years, before 
switching to TDE.  I have also used LibreOffice Writer, (the word processor), in 
TDE with no problems at all.

I am not certain about this, because I very rarely use GTK programs now, but 
the LibreOffice file picker seems to me to be rather similar to the file picker on 
a GTK based program that I did use a lot some years ago, (that was the old GUI 
for Cadabra, a computer algebra program).
