Could you please try this with 1.1.0-4 from Rawhide?  It contains a
number of fixes for all languages.  Thanks!
Comment 3 Dan Williams 2003-11-03 09:13:27 EST
The font that the Japanese text is written is is listed as "Gothic"
which doesn't print.  If the font is changed to Kochi Gothic, it
prints just fine.  1.1.0-2 had problems with the default font, which
should be fixed in later versions to default to Kochi Gothic.  So if
you could try to create a new slide-show and verify that the default
font is "Kochi Gothic" and not just "Gothic", that would be great.

Could you please test with updated versions of OOo, something later
than or including OOo 1.1.0-6?
