I don’t have the “toolbar layout” menu item :/

EDIT: Sorry I forced so many of you to drop everything and help me out with this comment, which was so obviously even asking for help and not just expressing slight frustration.

Are you on the latest version?

I’m on LibreOffice 6, yes. The latest from my repository.

Travis, If I remember, Ribbon was taken in LibreOffice 6.2 or 6.4. In Debian 10 and similar, the repository provides LibreOffice 6.1.5.

Edited: okay, was in version 6.2 https://www.ghacks.net/2019/02/10/libreoffice-6-2-with-optional-tabbed-ribbon-like-interface/

I think older versions can use it if you enabled the experimental features in the “Advanced” section in the “General” settings.

Yes, I followed the guide. The menu option still doesn’t exist.

Could you share your exact LibreOffice version? (x.y.z)

I’m not sure why then, sorry. Maybe someone else more knowledgeable can help?

Libreoffice is on version 7 now… go straight to the PPA maybe? https://launchpad.net/~libreoffice/+archive/ubuntu/ppa

This guide is supposedly for version 6.

There’s not a huge difference between versions, the way to enable the toolbar is the same.

Please refer to my original comment. The menu item does NOT EXIST on mine.

Please refer to my original reply. Update your LibreOffice to version 7. What distro are you using?

This link is for enabling it on LibreOffice 6. Nobody brought up 7 until you did.

Yeah I know. The link is for an outdated version though, from my perspective you’re being stubborn.

“This doesn’t work”

“We fixed it in a new version”

“No, it has to work in the version I have”

“Your version is 3 years old, we’re an open source project and don’t have the resources to backport it.”

“It has to work in the version I have.”

“But–”

“This random third party guide says it works in my version. and it doesn’t. Tell me how to fix it.”

If you’re so hung up on it having to work in the 3 year old version then message the author of that guide and ask them. And please send me the screenshot when they reply you should upgrade to Libreoffice 7.

Lmao fuck you dude. Nobody is forcing fucking anyone to help or respond. I didn’t make you reply to my comment, did I? The guide is for LibreOffice 6. For people who haven’t upgraded yet. LibreOffice 7 is fucking IRRELEVANT here.

Why do you have such a hard on for Libreoffice 6 that you’ve resorted to name calling? Are you embarrassed about your distro not being up to date?

Learn to read, please. I never called you any names. I said “fuck you.” Here, I’ll say it again, for clarity: fuck you.

My what a temper lol. You’re really into Libreoffice 6! I suppose you’ll never upgrade to 7 now without thinking about me 😵😆. Even when you’re outdated distro does eventually, I suppose you’ll think of me and how much of a goof you were being. Oh well, I suppose you could use OnlyOffice or WPS office or FreeOffice or Calligra instead. Such a strange fellow, stubborn and insults the people trying to help him. Meanwhile I’ll enjoy my tabs in Libreoffice 7 muahaha

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
