Our WIP repository available at GitHub,, branch 7.0.0

Of course, we support ports’ OVERLAY feature by adding:

Poudriere users should follows next steps:

sudo poudriere ports -c -F -p portoverlay
cd ${LOCALBASE}/poudriere/ports/portsoverlay

Or you can use pre-built packages with default options.

You can start the LibreOffice with x11 UI backend by setting
environment variable:


where ‘gen’ can be replaced by x11, gtk3, qt5 ,kf5, depends on selected build options to get a required vcl active
