Description Tim Waugh 2003-11-02 09:53:24 EST
Description of problem:
I use a program (gramps.sf.net) which generates OpenOffice.org output
formats for some types of report.  It wants to use two types of font:
serif and sans serif.  For these it specifies 'Times New Roman' and
'Arial', hoping that OOo will substitute something good enough.

It produces invisible text on one machine that I have (with lots of
extra fonts installed), and squashed-together text on a machine with
no extra fonts installed.

If I change the font names to Charter and Luxi Sans it all works as
expected.  Changing the font names to 'Serif' and 'Sans Serif', and
hoping that fontconfig will do the right thing, does not work.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1.1.0-4, 1.1.0-4.4

How reproducible:
