USE flags

Cannot load package information. Is the atom app-office/libreoffice correct?


Install app-office/libreoffice:

root #emerge --ask --verbose app-office/libreoffice

Binary installation

Since LibreOffice is such a large package to compile, it is also offered in pre-compiled binaries in app-office/libreoffice-bin.

root #emerge --ask --verbose app-office/libreoffice-bin

The binary packages are compiled such that they fit to the libraries of a stable Gentoo system. You will encounter difficulties if you try to use them on an ~arch system; this is not supported.

Spell check

By default, LibreOffice uses app-text/hunspell for spell check. To enable spell checking for a specific language, enable the corresponding language in L10N useflags of hunspell - either globally in /etc/portage/make.conf or in /etc/portage/package.env.
