Description Warren Togami 2005-05-26 20:54:58 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
[root@localhost ~]# oowriter
No fonts found; this probably means that the fontconfig
library is not correctly configured. You may need to
edit the fonts.conf configuration file. More information
about fontconfig can be found in the fontconfig(3) manual
page and on http://fontconfig.org

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install minimal install.
2. Install openoffice.org-writer and all deps.

Actual Results:  Fails to start because of a missing dep.

Expected Results:  Should start.

Comment 1 Dan Williams 2005-05-27 10:08:57 EDT
Warren, is the fontconfig package installed?
Comment 2 Dan Williams 2005-05-27 10:12:02 EDT
So, fontconfig must be installed unless RPM plays tricks:

openoffice.org-core requires libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0 (gtk2)
gtk2 requires libfontconfig.so.1 (fontconfig)
Comment 3 Warren Togami 2005-05-27 15:22:21 EDT
Yes fontconfig is installed.  Maybe not the fonts...
Comment 4 Caolan McNamara 2005-06-10 07:54:55 EDT
I'll add a require on basic fonts.
