LibreOffice (LO for short) is a multi-platform office productivity suite. It was derived from OpenOffice.org 3.3 Beta on September 28, 2010.
libreoffice is a shell script that sets up the environment and passes the command line arguments to the soffice.bin binary.
Alternatively, the following helper scripts start the respective module:
sbase, scalc, sdraw, simpress, smath, sofficerc, swriter
Specifies a UNO-URL connect-string to create a UNO acceptor through which other programs can connect to access the API. Note that API access allows execution of arbitrary commands. The syntax of a UNO-URL connect-string is: uno:connection-type,params;protocol-name,params;ObjectName
Starts the wizard for a new Base document.
Starts with a new Calc document.
Batch converts files. If --outdir is not specified then the current working directory is used as the output directory for the converted files. It implies --headless.
--convert-to pdf *.doc
Converts all .doc files to PDFs.
--convert-to pdf:writer_pdf_Export --outdir /home/user *.doc
Converts all .doc files to PDFs using the settings in the Writer PDF export dialog and saving them in /home/user.
This option specifies the X server to use; see X(7)
Starts with a new Draw document.
Starts with a new Global document.
Starts in "headless mode", which allows using the application without user a interface.
This special mode can be used when the application is controlled by external clients via the API.
It implies --invisible and strictly ignores any GUI environment. --quickstart does not work with this parameter.
Lists LibreOffice command line parameters.
Starts with a new Impress document.
Starts in invisible mode.
Neither the start-up logo nor the initial program window will be visible. LO can be controlled and documents and dialogs can be opened via the API.
When started with this parameter, it can only be quit using the taskmanager (Windows) or the kill command (UNIX based systems).
--quickstart does not work with this parameter.
Force an input filter type if possible. For example --infilter="Calc Office Open XML" only
Starts with a new Math document.
Keeps the splash screen minimized.
Creates the a new document from the given templates.
Starts LO without creating a new document. The next time you start LO, the welcome screen is shown.
It’s used together with --nologo by quick starters. Note that --quickstart has no longer been supported since OpenOffice.org 2.0.0.
Disables the check for remote instances using the installation.
Disables the splash screen at program start.
Disables restart and file recovery after a system crash. It is possible that LO will try to restore a file it keeps crashing on, if that happens --norestore is the only way to start LO.
Disables the splash screen at program start.
Opens the given files for editing, even templates.
Without -o a template file would create a new document derived from that template.
Prints the given files to the default printer and ends. The splash screen does not appear.
If the file name contains spaces, then it must be enclosed in quotation marks.
[--printer-name printer_name] [--outdir output_dir]
Batch print files to file. If --printer-name is not specified the default printer is used. If --outdir is not specified then the current working directory is used as the output directory for the converted files.
Prints all .doc files to the current working directory using the default printer.
--print-to-file --printer-name nasty_lowres_printer --outdir /home/user *.doc
Prints all .doc files to /home/user directory using the nasty_lowres_printer.
--pt printername file...
Prints the given files to the printer printername and ends. The splash screen does not appear.
If a file name contains spaces, then it must be enclosed in quotation marks.
Starts LO with its quick starter. --quickstart disable the quick starter.
Does not work with --invisible or --headless.
--show Impress file...
Opens the given Impress files, starts the presentation and quits after they have finished.
Closes an acceptor that was created with --accept option.
Use --unaccept=all to close all open acceptors.
Starts LO and terminates after it registers some UNO services. Doesn’t show the splash during startup.
Opens the given files read-only creating a temporary copy of them at $TMPDIR.
Starts with a new HTML document.
Starts with a new Writer document.
