Description of problem:
OpenOffice.org package doesn't have correct Japanese alias,
so user needs to set alias at his initial startup of OpenOffice.org.
That's very messy.
MS Mincho should be aliased to Kochi Mincho
MS Gothic should be aliased to Kochi Gothic
MS PMincho should be aliased to Kochi Mincho
MS PGothic should be aliased to Kochi Gothic
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mv ~/.rhopenoffice1.1/ to ~/.rhopenoffice1.1.orig (if you have it)
2. Run ooffice with a Japanese MS Office doc
3. There is not strings in the document.
4. Need to learn openoffice.org font aliases
Actual Results: No font aliases
Expected Results: Japanese Font alises by default
The attached patch does not break or affect other languages.
The crappy guys might think OpenOffice.org is already ready for Japanese
users because they need just add Japanese font aliases later, but it
doesn't make sense. All applications must have appropriate font
setting by themselves by default, without any additional user settings.
Otherwise, user needs to learn font settings for each application
before using it. That never happens on Microsoft Windows, they
understand it well.

Diff for openoffice.spec (openoffice-1.1.0-24)
Actually, the fix target is in the archive
so the patch is applied at %install.

Yukihiro, can you attach a document that has this problem, so that I
can develop a more permanent fix? Thanks!

Convert realjpword.doc with Acrobat Reader 6.0 Standard(JP).
This pdf will show you how realjpword.doc looks like on Windows.
Your 'Permanent Fix' means the upstream fix?
Kochi Mincho/Gothic should not be assumed to be system default
on any Linux distribution/OS.
Other distros uses other proprietary, beauty fonts.
Distro's domestic font aliases might make sense.
