Comment 3 Caolan McNamara 2005-07-19 09:22:13 EDT
perhaps bug 163147 is related.

caolanm->davidz: our OOo uses font-config to find font substitutions, OOo can
only use outline fonts so I make a subset of the available fonts and create a
config of outline only. Then with the above font installed the sample code
attached gives the new font as it's best substitution. Can you have a look and
see if there's a solution ?
Comment 4 Caolan McNamara 2005-08-05 11:07:46 EDT
caolanm->twaugh: is this still the case with 1.9.122-3 ?
Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2005-08-08 04:23:52 EDT
I installed this package on FC4:


and that seems to fix the problem, yes.
Comment 6 Caolan McNamara 2005-08-08 04:27:35 EDT
alternative fontconfig stuff seems to avoid this problem them. Fixed rawhide,
and we'll push a fc4 update in the next week or two.
