Unhappy Open Office suite's missing menu bars


Having installed Mint 8 ,then mint 7, both (Gnome), I have been unable to access open offices menu bars in neither Writer ,spreadsheet,etc.
Then i tried Abiword, where I saw the Menu bar, but could not enter text, just gibberish.
Thanking you.

With regards to the missing menu bar problem, I am using Google Docs for my Word Processing; because with Mint (Gnome) 7,8,9 do not show the "File, Edit ....Tools,etc. But when I try PClinuxOS(Gnome) I am able to view
Their Abiword menu bar as it should be, straange and wierd.
