    Thanks for this post !
    In my case, I’ve also to update libreoffice-math & python-uno from backports.

    In fact, aptitude tell me that there’s a dependencies trouble with this 2 packages and propose to let some dependencies unsatisfied … I refused and so it give me another proposal : updating these two packages from backports 😉

    Thank you for this tip, Scott.

    Not only did it give me the latest version, it also cured the terribly slow loading I had with the previous one 🙂

      I would say you’d have to install your language package with:

      sudo apt-get -t wheezy-backports install libreoffice-l10n-xx

      xx being your language (for me it’s fr as in french).

        Hello Sylvain.
        I have tried “sudo apt-get -t wheezy-backports install libreoffice-l10n-de” to install.
        Then I got Libreoffice 3.0 and I will Libreoffice 4.0 in german language, because I live as Dutchman in Germany and my first ist french “GĂ©rard”.
        Perhapsyou have an other solution forme?
        Greeting GĂ©rard Bekhuis.
