Install Libreoffice MS theme on Linux ARM Device

Libreoffice MS theme

Make Libreoffice to look like Microsoft office - icon theme and tabbed interface.
The icon theme was obtained from here:
And the tabbed interface is a hidden feature within Libreoffice.
Currently, the tabbed interface works for Calc, Impress, and Writer. Base and Math don't support it, and it doesn't display correctly on Draw for some reason.
