Ask Your Question

Revision history [back]

You should not build LO to have no GUI, unless you clearly understand the implications. However, you can run it without GUI: there is --headless switch, and some other switches imply headless (so no need to specify it explicitly) - e.g., --convert-to.

If you feel like you certainly need to try to strip LO from "unnecessary" stuff, then refer to documentation available with

./autogen.sh --help

in LibreOffice development environment set up after instructions in Development wiki. (Notice that there is --disable-gui switch, but read the disclaimer given for it carefully.)

Anyway, this relates to development (in a way), and this kind of questions is better asked in #libreoffice-dev on IRC, or on our developer's mailing list.
