Install Libreoffice MS theme on Raspberry Pi

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.

Fortunately, Libreoffice MS theme is very easy to install on your Raspberry Pi in just two steps.

  1. Install Pi-Apps - the best app installer for Raspberry Pi.
  2. Use Pi-Apps to install Libreoffice MS theme.


For the best chance of this working, we recommend using the latest version of Raspberry Pi OS, which is currently version Bookworm.
Raspberry Pi OS has 32-bit and 64-bit variants, both of which will run on most Raspberry Pi computers, including the Pi 3, Pi 4, and Pi5.
Libreoffice MS theme will run on either PiOS 32-bit or 64-bit.
