If we should do it that way, that's fine, but currently, following the build
instructions on the website don't work for ubuntu. I had to look for the
solution (which ended up being adding the ppa) on another website. It would
be good to fix this since I would guess there will be some ubuntu users that
want to try to build libreoffice.

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
libreoffice ppa to the apt repository.

Sorry for the delay, but isn't just using the old name (i.e. build-dep working in this case?

I'd rather not suggest adding ppas to the requirements... (as to my
understanding it is only the alias that changed in this regard)
