Building LibreOffice

1. Get the code

$ git clone git://

Grab a cup of coffee!

2. in order to speed up the building process we highly recommend to install ccache and create some links to point g++ and gcc compilers to the ccache binary:

 sudo apt-get install ccache
 ln -s /usr/bin/ccache  ~/bin/g++  
 ln -s /usr/bin/ccache ~/bin/gcc  
 ccache --max-size 32G

If you are using a laptop’s hard disk to build LibreOffice, then it would be a good idea to enable also ccache compression:


3. Download all the dependencies needed to build LO:

sudo apt-get build-dep libreoffice

4. Check that dependencies are filled and that we have a well-equipped build environment


5. Rock and Roll!

make dev-install
