514 <para>
515 <parameter>--with-help</parameter>: Without this switch, the help files
516 are not built.
517 </para>
518
519 <para>
520 <parameter>--with-jdk-home=/opt/jdk</parameter>: This parameter will silence
521 a warning that the configure script attempted to find JAVA_HOME
522 automatically (even though that is passed in the environment). Omit this if
523 you disabled java.
524 </para>
525
526 <para>
527 <parameter>--with-myspell-dicts</parameter>: This switch adds myspell
528 dictionaries to the <application>LibreOffice</application> installation
529 set.
530 </para>
531 <!-- Unrecognized as of 6.2.0.3
532 <para>
533 <parameter>- -with-alloc=system</parameter>: This switch tells
534 <application>LibreOffice</application> to use the system allocator
535 instead of its internal one.
536 </para>
537 -->
538 <para>
539 <parameter>--with-system-boost</parameter>: This switch enables using
540 system boost. From time to time, recent versions of boost break
541 the build of libreoffice. In this case, it is possible to use the
542 bundled copy of boost, by removing this flag.
543 </para>
544
545 <para>
546 <parameter>--disable-dconf</parameter>: This switch disables compiling
547 <application>LibreOffice</application> with the
548 <application>GNOME DConf</application> configuration system support.
549 </para>
550
551 <para>
552 <parameter>-disable-gtk -enable-gtk3</parameter>: This pair of switches
553 tell the configure script to use <application>gtk3</application> instead
554 of <application>gtk2</application>.
555 </para>
556
557 <para>
558 <parameter>--without-junit</parameter>: This switch disables the tests
559 for the deprecated HSQLDB driver which is written in Java. If you wish
560 to build this driver replace this switch with the set of switches
561 described below under '--with-java'.
562 </para>
563
564 <para>
565 <parameter>--without-system-dicts</parameter>: This switch disables use
566 of dictionaries from system paths, so the ones installed by this package
567 are used.
568 </para>
569
570 <para>
571 <parameter>--disable-odk</parameter>: This switch disables installing the
572 office development kit. Remove if you want to develop a
573 <application>LibreOffice</application> based application.
574 </para>
575
576 <para>
577 <parameter>--enable-release-build=yes</parameter>: This switch enables a
578 Release Build. <application>LibreOffice</application> can be built as a
579 Release Build or as a Developer Build, because their default installation
580 paths and user profile paths are different. Developer Build displays the
581 words "Dev" and "Beta" in several places (e.g, menu and splash screen).
582 </para>
583
584 <para>
585 <parameter>--enable-python=system</parameter>: This switch tells
586 <application>LibreOffice</application> to use installed
587 <application>Python 3</application> to build the translations instead of
588 the bundled one.
589 </para>
590
591 <para>
592 <parameter>--with-system-*</parameter>: These switches prevent
593 <application>LibreOffice</application> from trying to compile its own
594 versions of these dependencies. If you've not installed some of the
595 dependencies, remove the corresponding switches.
596 </para>
597
598<!--
599 <para>
600 <command>CPPFLAGS='-DU_USING_ICU_NAMESPACE=1' make ...</command>: <xref
601 linkend="icu"/> has removed an implicit namespace <quote>using</quote>
602 from its headers files. Setting <envar>U_USING_ICU_NAMESPACE</envar> to
603 1 allows to restore the former behavior, which is required for building
604 <application>libreoffice</application>.
605 </para>
606-->
607 <para>
608 <command>make distro-pack-install</command>: this does a normal
609 install, but if you add a DESTDIR environment variable it will also
610 install a lot of (text) gid_Module_* files in the DESTDIR, to help
611 distributions which want to break the package into parts.
612 </para>
613
614 <para>
615 <option>--with-parallelism=&lt;count&gt;</option>: This switch
616 tells <application>LibreOffice</application> to use &lt;count&gt; CPU
617 cores to compile in parallel. (Do not include literal angle brackets.)
618 The default is to use all available cores on the system.
619 </para>
620
621 <para>
622 <option>--disable-cups</option>: Use this switch if you don't need
623 printing support.
624 </para>
625
626 <para>
627 <option>--disable-dbus</option>: Use this switch if you've not installed
628 D-Bus-1.8.0 or later. It also disables Bluetooth support and font install
629 via PackageKit.
630 </para>
631
632 <para>
633 <option>--disable-firebird-sdbc</option>: By default, the ability to
634 connect to a <application>firebird</application> database is enabled.
635 Add this switch if you do not need that feature.
636 </para>
637
638 <para>
639 <option>--disable-gstreamer-1-0</option>: Use this switch if you have not
640 installed <xref linkend="gst10-plugins-base"/>.
641 </para>
642
643 <para>
644 <option>--disable-gtk3</option>: Use this switch if you have not installed
645 <application>GTK+-3</application>, or if you have installed it but wish
646 to use <application>GTK+-2</application> (the menu icons differ).
647 Note that a <application>GTK+-3</application> build still
648 requires <application>GTK+-2</application> to build the gtk-plugin.
649 </para>
650
651 <para>
652 <option>--disable-postgresql-sdbc</option>: This switch disables compiling
653 <application>LibreOffice</application> with the ability to connect to a
654 <application>PostgreSQL</application> database. Use it if you have not
655 installed <application>PostgreSQL</application> and you do not want
656 <application>LibreOffice</application> to compile its bundled copy.
657 </para>
658
659 <para>
660 <option>--enable-lto</option>: This switch will enable Link Time
661 Optimization, which results in slightly smaller libraries (about 40 MB).
662 This is said to make <application>LibreOffice</application> programs
663 load faster (and possibly run faster, e.g. when recalculating a
664 spreadsheet). On an 8-core machine with 16GB of memory, the difference
665 in compile times was minimal, but an extra 2GB was used for the work
666 files. On machines with fewer processors or a lack of memory, the compile
667 might be much slower.
668 </para>
669
670 <para>
671 <option>--without-java</option>: This switch disables
672 <application>Java</application> support in
673 <application>LibreOffice</application>. Java is needed for the
674 deprecated HSQLDB driver, which allows reading databases created by
675 other programs or in earlier versions of libreoffice
676 <application>base</application>.
677 </para>
678

680 <option>--with-junit=/opt/ant/lib/junit-4.12.jar</option> and

682 Those options are needed if you want to run the tests.
683 </para>
684
685 <para>
686 <option>--without-fonts</option>: <application>LibreOffice</application>
687 includes a number of third-party TrueType fonts. If you have already
688 installed some or all of the same fonts, you may prefer to use the system
689 versions.

693 <!-- Brings in - -enable-qt5 as well. -->

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