I was getting started on LibreOffice development and this link said to do sudo apt-get build-dep libreoffice and then do a git clone. Now, build-dep installs openJDK and I already have Oracle Java installed. I cloned the repo, ran ./ and was installing dependencies manually whenever it complained. It complained ant was missing, so I used the information on this link and got ant installed. Now, the script is complaining that I don't have ant libraries and I am at my wits' end how to install it. Please help!

I'm on Ubuntu 12.10

sounds like your ANT_HOME path is not set perhaps?

try at the terminal:

echo $ANT_HOME

if nothing displays, then you are not set.


export ANT_HOME=/path/to/your/ant/install
