    I want to disable global menu (in 12.10 Ubuntu) for LO. This is because, it prevents use of “Alt+ Underline letter” to access menu item. It took me lot of practice to memorize them..(LO versions in Windows still allow this).
    Using Alt +F10 and then the arrow keys is far less efficient.
    Kindly help me remove the global menu and get back the usage of alt+ Underlined.
