DESCRIPTION

       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

OPTIONS

       --accept=accept-string
              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

       --base Starts the wizard for a new Base document.

       --calc Starts with a new Calc document.

       --convert-to output_file_extension[:output_filter_name] [--outdir output_dir] file...
              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.

              Examples:

              --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.

       --display display
              This option specifies the X server to use; see X(7)

       --draw Starts with a new Draw document.

       --global
              Starts with a new Global document.

       --headless
              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.

       --help|-h|-?
              Lists LibreOffice command line parameters.

       --impress
              Starts with a new Impress document.

       --invisible
              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.

       --infilter="<filter>"
              Force  an  input filter type if possible.  For example --infilter="Calc Office Open
              XML" only

       --math Starts with a new Math document.

       --minimized
              Keeps the splash screen minimized.

       -n template...
              Creates the a new document from the given templates.

       --nodefault
              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.

       --nolockcheck
              Disables the check for remote instances using the installation.

       --nologo
              Disables the splash screen at program start.

       --norestore
              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.

       --nosplash
              Disables the splash screen at program start.

       -o file...
              Opens the given files for editing, even templates.

              Without -o a template file would create a new document derived from that template.

       -p file...
              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.

       --print-to-file [--printer-name printer_name] [--outdir output_dir] file...
              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.

              Examples:

              --print-to-file *.doc

              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.

       --quickstart --quickstart=no
              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.

       --unaccept=accept-string
              Closes an acceptor that was created with --accept option.

              Use --unaccept=all to close all open acceptors.

       --terminate_after_init
              Starts  LO  and  terminates after it registers some UNO services.  Doesn't show the
              splash during startup.

       --view file...
              Opens the given files read-only creating a temporary copy of them at $TMPDIR.

       --web  Starts with a new HTML document.

       --writer
              Starts with a new Writer document.
