In this tutorial, we will see how to change the green splash screen of LibreOffice 3.6.x under Ubuntu/Linux Mint. If you haven't created your own splash screen, you can search and download some of them here.

Installing Libre Office 3.6.x

If you haven't already upgraded to LibreOffice 3.6, then do with these commands under Ubuntu 12.10/12.04/Linux Mint 13:

sudo apt-get purge libreoffice-core 
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-prereleases 
sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install libreoffice

Changing LibreOffice 3.6 Splash Screen

Let's first backup the default green splash screen with this command:

sudo mv /usr/lib/libreoffice/program/intro.png /usr/lib/libreoffice/program/intro.png.back

Now rename your custom splash screen to intro.png and move it with this command:

sudo mv intro.png /usr/lib/libreoffice/program/

To restore the default splash screen, run this command:

sudo mv /usr/lib/libreoffice/program/intro.png.back /usr/lib/libreoffice/program/intro.png

Note: This tip is also workable for LibreOffice 3.5.x.
