Installing Linux libraries manually

Use this information to install Linux libraries manually on supported Linux distributions, such as Ubuntu, SUSE and Red Hat.
LibreOffice requires the following libraries to be installed on your system:
  • libfontconfig
  • libICE
  • libSM
  • libXrender
  • libXext
  • libXinerama
  • libcups
  • libGLU
  • libcairo2
  • libgl1-mesa-glx
If the required libraries are missing, you will get a warning message. You can install them using your package manager from the command line. Also, the Linux libraries file names may vary by distribution.

For Red Hat Enterprise Linux/CentOS, you can run:
cd <libre-install-dir>/LibreOffice_*.*.*.*_Linux_x86-64_rpm/RPMS/
sudo yum localinstall *rpm

For Ubuntu:

cd <libre-install-dir>/LibreOffice_*.*.*.*_Linux_x86-64_rpm/RPMS/
sudo dpkg -i *deb

If LibreOffice does not start up normally with Alfresco Community Edition, test manually; for example, by running this startup script:
start ex.  
{installdir}/libreoffice/scripts/ start 
status ex. {installdir} 
/libreoffice/scripts/ status

If you receive errors that indicate that a library missing, work with your system administrator to add the missing library or its equivalent from your configured repositories.
