This may or may not help you, but I'll put it out there, anyway. 

I don't use LibreOffice myself, and prefer the OpenOffice version that has 
been kept alive by Apache. (There are certain quirks in LibreOffice that mess 
up my existing documents, and I don't want to have to change everything, to 
redo formatting, etc.) 

It may be that OpenOffice could solve your issues, or not? 
https://sourceforge.net/projects/openofficeorg.mirror/
https://sourceforge.net/projects/apacheoo-deb/files/
For what it's worth, I have hardly ever used LibreOffice, but rather have 
stuck with OpenOffice continuously for 20 years or so. 

In any case, OpenOffice works very well for me, and I've been running it in 
Windoze 2000 Pro, KDE3, KDE4 and TDE desktops. It also integrates with my 
color scheme, and works in Trinity the same as it did years ago on Kubuntu 
Hardy Heron 8.04 KDE3. However, your results may vary! 

If you want to add the lines to your sources list: 
########
# Open Office - Apache - unofficial repositories 
# sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 90127F5B

# deb http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/apacheoo-deb/debian <version> 
main

deb http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/apacheoo-deb/debian testing main 

########

Like Trinity, it will install by default in your /opt folder. 

As far as I recall, the same packages are used for Ubuntu or Debian, and 
instructions are to use testing, no matter what version you run on your 
machine. There are also some specific instructions for how to go about 
purging LibreOffice stuff, then reinstalling OpenOffice. If you want to do 
this, I will send my instructions, as well. It's a little tricky to get 
started, at least the first time or two, but after that it has worked without 
a hitch.
