How to build LibreOffice


Build and run it

These instructions are primarily aimed at a GNU/Linux user. They are somewhat raw, but they will be improved over time. Bootstrap your system by installing all the packages required to build your distribution's LibreOffice package. The easiest way to do this is to proceed as follows:

sudo apt-get build-dep libreoffice # Debian & derivatives (was
sudo apt-get install libgnome-vfsmm-2.6-dev # Ubuntu - in addition to Debian
sudo zypper si -d libreoffice # for OpenSUSE 11.4+
sudo yum-builddep libreoffice # for Fedora 15+ & derivatives
sudo dnf builddep libreoffice # for Fedora 23+ & derivatives

Then download the complete source code and build it:

instdir/program/soffice # starts the program

Or alternatively for easy debugging:

make debugrun # this will start libreoffice under gdb

If you have problems with the build, don't be put off - get in touch with us on IRC, and/or read the wiki page How to build
