Hopefully this is the right place to post this. I have a suggestion for
something add to the website.

On the developer page (,
in the Build and Run It section, the line "sudo apt-get build-dep
libreoffice" does not work off the bat for ubuntu. It's necessary to add the
libreoffice ppa to the apt repository.

In ubuntu, you need do the following before building libreoffice from
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa
sudo apt-get update

It would great if this could be added since a lot of people use ubuntu. This
should apply to other distros that use apt, too. If I should submit this
suggestion somewhere else, let me know.
