521 <para>
522 <parameter>--with-help</parameter>: Without this switch, the help files
523 are not built.
524 </para>
525
526 <para>
527 <parameter>--with-jdk-home=/opt/jdk</parameter>: This parameter will silence
528 a warning that the configure script attempted to find JAVA_HOME
529 automatically (even though that is passed in the environment). Omit this if
530 you disabled java.
531 </para>
532
533 <para>
534 <parameter>--with-myspell-dicts</parameter>: This switch adds myspell
535 dictionaries to the <application>LibreOffice</application> installation
536 set.
537 </para>
538 <!-- Unrecognized as of 6.2.0.3
539 <para>
540 <parameter>- -with-alloc=system</parameter>: This switch tells
541 <application>LibreOffice</application> to use the system allocator
542 instead of its internal one.
543 </para>
544 -->
545 <para>
546 <parameter>--with-system-boost</parameter>: This switch enables using
547 system boost. From time to time, recent versions of boost break
548 the build of libreoffice. In this case, it is possible to use the
549 bundled copy of boost, by removing this flag.
550 </para>
551
552 <para>
553 <parameter>--disable-dconf</parameter>: This switch disables compiling
554 <application>LibreOffice</application> with the
555 <application>GNOME DConf</application> configuration system support.
556 </para>
557
558 <para>
559 <parameter>-disable-gtk -enable-gtk3</parameter>: This pair of switches
560 tell the configure script to use <application>GTK+-3</application> instead
561 of <application>GTK+-2</application>.
562 </para>
563
564 <para>
565 <parameter>--without-junit</parameter>: This switch disables the tests
566 for the deprecated HSQLDB driver which is written in Java. If you wish
567 to build this driver replace this switch with the set of switches
568 described below after '--without-java'.
569 </para>
570
571 <para>
572 <parameter>--without-system-dicts</parameter>: This switch disables use
573 of dictionaries from system paths, so the ones installed by this package
574 are used.
575 </para>
576
577 <para>
578 <parameter>--disable-odk</parameter>: This switch disables installing the
579 office development kit. Remove if you want to develop a
580 <application>LibreOffice</application> based application.
581 </para>
582
583 <para>
584 <parameter>--enable-release-build=yes</parameter>: This switch enables a
585 Release Build. <application>LibreOffice</application> can be built as a
586 Release Build or as a Developer Build, because their default installation
587 paths and user profile paths are different. Developer Build displays the
588 words "Dev" and "Beta" in several places (e.g, menu and splash screen).
589 </para>
590
591 <para>
592 <parameter>--enable-python=system</parameter>: This switch tells
593 <application>LibreOffice</application> to use installed
594 <application>Python 3</application> to build the translations instead of
595 the bundled one.
596 </para>
597
598 <para>
599 <parameter>--with-system-*</parameter>: These switches prevent
600 <application>LibreOffice</application> from trying to compile its own
601 versions of these dependencies. If you've not installed some of the
602 dependencies, remove the corresponding switches.
603 </para>
604
605<!--
606 <para>
607 <command>CPPFLAGS='-DU_USING_ICU_NAMESPACE=1' make ...</command>: <xref
608 linkend="icu"/> has removed an implicit namespace <quote>using</quote>
609 from its headers files. Setting <envar>U_USING_ICU_NAMESPACE</envar> to
610 1 allows to restore the former behavior, which is required for building
611 <application>libreoffice</application>.
612 </para>
613-->
614 <para>
615 <command>make distro-pack-install</command>: this does a normal
616 install, but if you add a DESTDIR environment variable it will also
617 install a lot of (text) gid_Module_* files in the DESTDIR, to help
618 distributions which want to break the package into parts.
619 </para>
620
621 <para>
622 <option>--with-parallelism=&lt;count&gt;</option>: This switch
623 tells <application>LibreOffice</application> to use &lt;count&gt; CPU
624 cores to compile in parallel. (Do not include literal angle brackets.)
625 The default is to use all available cores on the system.
626 </para>
627
628 <para>
629 <option>--disable-cups</option>: Use this switch if you don't need
630 printing support.
631 </para>
632
633 <para>
634 <option>--disable-dbus</option>: Use this switch if you've not installed
635 D-Bus-1.8.0 or later. It also disables Bluetooth support and font install
636 via PackageKit.
637 </para>
638
639 <para>
640 <option>--disable-firebird-sdbc</option>: By default, the ability to
641 connect to a <application>firebird</application> database is enabled.
642 Add this switch if you do not need that feature.
643 </para>
644
645 <para>
646 <option>--disable-gstreamer-1-0</option>: Use this switch if you have not
647 installed <xref linkend="gst10-plugins-base"/>.
648 </para>
649
650 <para>
651 <option>--disable-gtk3</option>: Use this switch if you have not installed
652 <application>GTK+-3</application>, or if you have installed it but wish
653 to use <application>GTK+-2</application> (the menu icons differ).
654 <!-- Note that a <application>GTK+-3</application> build still
655 requires <application>GTK+-2</application> to build the gtk-plugin.-->
656 </para>
657
658 <para>
659 <option>--disable-postgresql-sdbc</option>: This switch disables compiling
660 <application>LibreOffice</application> with the ability to connect to a
661 <application>PostgreSQL</application> database. Use it if you have not
662 installed <application>PostgreSQL</application> and you do not want
663 <application>LibreOffice</application> to compile its bundled copy.
664 </para>
665
666 <para>
667 <option>--enable-lto</option>: This switch will enable Link Time
668 Optimization, which results in slightly smaller libraries (about 40 MB).
669 This is said to make <application>LibreOffice</application> programs
670 load faster (and possibly run faster, e.g. when recalculating a
671 spreadsheet). On an 8-core machine with 16GB of memory, the difference
672 in compile times was minimal, but an extra 2GB was used for the work
673 files. On machines with fewer processors or a lack of memory, the compile
674 might be much slower.
675 </para>
676
677 <para>
678 <option>--without-java</option>: This switch disables
679 <application>Java</application> support in
680 <application>LibreOffice</application>. Java is needed for the
681 deprecated HSQLDB driver, which allows reading databases created by
682 other programs or in earlier versions of libreoffice
683 <application>base</application>.
684 </para>
685
686 <para>
687 <option>--with-junit=/opt/ant/lib/junit-4.12.jar</option> and

689 Those options are needed if you want to run the tests.
690 </para>
691
692 <para>
693 <option>--without-fonts</option>: <application>LibreOffice</application>
694 includes a number of third-party TrueType fonts. If you have already
695 installed some or all of the same fonts, you may prefer to use the system
696 versions.

703 installed in <filename class="directory">/usr</filename>, the include
704 and library directories must be specified in <envar>QT5INC</envar>,
