Description of problem:
I wish to install additional fonts in openoffice to aid compatability
with MS Office apps. Previously I used spadmin to do this but in the
current release (up2date installed 14-5-04) the `font' button in the
spadmin dialogue is missing.
Is the button planning to make an appearance in the future? If not how
do I install additional fonts? The help text says to use spadmin
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run spadmin from the install directory (/usr/lib/openoffice)
2. That's it!
Actual Results: No font button in spadmin dialogue
Expected Results: Previous release (1.0.2-8) worked OK
1.1.0-16.7 actually uses fontconfig for font discovery. So, to
install new fonts, just drop them in the normal places, namely under
/usr/share/fonts and OOo should find them. If not, its a bug.
Thanks for the prompt feedback - works great. Perhaps future releases
could include this info in the help text?
