LibreOffice is a free and powerful office suite, and a successor to OpenOffice. Its clean interface and feature-rich tools help you unleash your creativity and enhance your productivity. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install LibreOffice on your Synology NAS using Docker.
Install Docker via Synology “Package Center”.
Go to File Station and open the docker folder. Inside the docker folder, create one new folder and name it libreoffice. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Note: Be careful to enter only lowercase, not uppercase letters.
Go to Control Panel / Task Scheduler / Create / Scheduled Task / User-defined script. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Once you click on User-defined script, a new window will open. Follow the instructions below:
- General: In the Task field type in “Install LibreOffice“. Uncheck the “Enabled” option. Select root User.
- Schedule: Select Run on the following date then select “Do not repeat“.
- Task Settings: Check “Send run details by email“, add your email then copy paste the code below in the Run command area. After that, click OK.
docker run -d --name=libreoffice \ -p 3444:3000 \ -e PUID=1026 \ -e PGID=100 \ -e TZ=Europe/Bucharest \ -v /volume1/docker/libreoffice:/config \ --restart always \ ghcr.io/linuxserver/libreoffice
Note: Before you paste the code above in the Run command area, change the value numbers for PUID and PGID with your own values. (Follow my step by step guide on how to do this.)
Note: Before you paste the code above in the Run command area, change the value for TZ. (Select your current Time Zone from this list.)
After you click OK on STEP 5 a new warning pop up window will open. Click OK.
After you click OK on STEP 6, select your “Install LibreOffice” Task then click the “Run” tab. You will be asked to run Install LibreOffice – click Yes. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Go back to STEP 1 or you will deal with karma 🙂
The installation process can take up to a few seconds/minutes. It will depend on your Internet speed connection. Now open your browser and type in http://Synology-ip-address:3444

Note: If you write a document and you save the file, the file will be saved in the libreoffice folder you have previously created at STEP 3 of this article.
