All these commands are looking for an X server. How can I avoid it?

I don't believe it's actually looking for a server, rather it just
needs a library related to X11.  When run in headless mode, no
communication with an X server will take place, but since the LO
binary you have (and probably most if not all standard/dist *nix LO
builds) have been linked with the X libraries, the loader still needs
to be able to resolve the libraries.

It is possible, if rebuilding LO from source, to compile without any
X11 support at all, but there may still be some other library
dependencies (on, say, fonts) that you'd still need to satisfy.  And
building from source can be pretty non-trivial the first time.

Simpler is to just install the X11 support libraries.  There's no need
to actually run an X server, just have the libraries available.  I'm
assuming you've installed LO manually (since I would expect a
distribution package to have dependencies built in), so you could run
ldd on the installed soffice.bin to double check what libraries you
are missing and then install the appropriate packages from your
