I guess you're running Kubuntu 12.04, as you talk about KDE in this post.

LO 5.0 builds just fine in Precise / 12.04. See
for newer packages.

There is also a 12.04 / precise Tinderbox building the libreoffice-5-0
branch with kde4:

We also had problems with Qt4 / all KDE applications and ibus. At the
end we backported the 14.04 / trusty version of fcitx and use this
currently :-(
