Florian Reisinger <florei at libreoffice.org> is looking it. I hope that he
would solve it.

This one is not needed if you do not have the other 3.6.7 packages.

There was a bug that the libreoffice-debian-menus package names were not
versioned. The package buld has the name
libreoffice4.1-debian-menus, so it finally has the same prefix as the
other libreoffice4.1 packages and can be installed in parallel with 3.6.

The one from TDF if you have it.

So, you did the following?

    for i in ../*.deb; do dpkg-deb -x $i . ; done

Hmm, this just unpack the files but it does not call the postinstall
scripts. You might want to remove the files and really install the
packages using:

    sudo dpkg -i *.deb

I hope that it is because using "dpkg-deb -x" instead of "dpkg -i".
