508 <command>sed -e ...</command>: The first sed prevents compression of the
509 manual pages, the second one prevents the install from failing, and the
510 third one allows the build to use poppler-0.86.1 and later.
511 <!-- FIXME update hardcoded poppler version in text when necessary -->

517 on the toolbar.

520 <para>
521 <parameter>--with-lang='fr en-GB'</parameter>: This switch sets
522 what languages to support. To list several languages, separate them with

536 are not built.

539 <para>
540 <parameter>--with-jdk-home=/opt/jdk</parameter>: This parameter will silence
541 a warning that the configure script attempted to find JAVA_HOME
542 automatically (even though that is passed in the environment). Omit this if
543 you disabled java.
544 </para>
545

548 dictionaries to the <application>LibreOffice</application> installation
549 set.

552 <para>

555 instead of its internal one.
556 </para>
557 -->
558 <para>
559 <parameter>--with-system-boost</parameter>: This switch enables using
560 system boost. From time to time, recent versions of boost break
561 the build of libreoffice. In this case, it is possible to use the
562 bundled copy of boost, by removing this flag.
563 </para>

585 <para>
586 <parameter>--disable-odk</parameter>: This switch disables installing the
587 office development kit. Remove if you want to develop a
588 <application>LibreOffice</application> based application.
589 </para>
590
591 <para>
592 <parameter>--enable-release-build=yes</parameter>: This switch enables a
593 Release Build. <application>LibreOffice</application> can be built as a
594 Release Build or as a Developer Build, because their default installation
595 paths and user profile paths are different. Developer Build displays the
596 words "Dev" and "Beta" in several places (e.g, menu and splash screen).
597 </para>
598
599 <para>
600 <parameter>--enable-python=system</parameter>: This switch tells
601 <application>LibreOffice</application> to use the system installed
602 <application>Python 3</application> instead of
603 the bundled one.
604 </para>
605
606 <para>
607 <parameter>--with-system-*</parameter>: These switches prevent
608 <application>LibreOffice</application> from trying to compile its own
609 versions of these dependencies. If you've not installed some of the
610 dependencies, remove the corresponding switches.

626 distributions which want to break the package into parts.

630 <option>--with-parallelism=&lt;count&gt;</option>: This switch
631 tells <application>LibreOffice</application> to use &lt;count&gt; CPU
632 cores to compile in parallel. (Do not include literal angle brackets.)
633 The default is to use all available cores on the system.

644 via PackageKit.

646
647 <para>

671 installed <application>PostgreSQL</application> and you do not want

677 Library, which is responsible for widgets, to be built with KF5 file
678 dialogs if GTK+-3, Qt5 and Plasma are all available.
679 </para>
680
681 <para>
682 <option>--enable-lto</option>: This switch will enable Link Time
683 Optimization, which results in slightly smaller libraries (about 40 MB).
684 This is said to make <application>LibreOffice</application> programs
685 load faster (and possibly run faster, e.g. when recalculating a
686 spreadsheet). On an 8-core machine with 16GB of memory, the difference
687 in compile times was minimal, but an extra 2GB was used for the work
688 files. On machines with fewer processors or a lack of memory, the compile
689 might be much slower.
690 </para>
691
692 <para>
693 <option>--without-java</option>: This switch disables
694 <application>Java</application> support in
695 <application>LibreOffice</application>. Java is needed for the
696 deprecated HSQLDB driver, which allows reading databases created by
697 other programs or in earlier versions of libreoffice

712 versions.

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