From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.18-12.4 i686)

Description of problem:
When I use the openoffice RPM at RawHide  openoffice-1.0.1-4.i386.rpm 
I can not get mathematical symbols to render on screen. Generated
postscript output look ok, though. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install openoffice-1.0.1-4
2. oomath
3. Enter the expression: a = b  
3b. or alternatively: sum from {i=0} to {N} a_{i}

Actual Results:  The letters a and b show up, but no mathematical symbols
such as the "equal" sign or the "sum" sign.

Additional info:

Installing OpenOffice from the OpenOffice.org web site
worked just fine. So it is either a missing pre-requisite
that is not listed in the RPM that I have missed (but I 
can not think of one) or something wrong in the RPM.

This is the working version I got from OpenOffice.org:
ls -l OOo_1.0.1_LinuxIntel_install.tar.gz

Well, problem seem to to do with XFree86 or fonts. I downloaded -67.5 from mharris 
and that renders all the mathematical symbols in openoffice perfectly. This morning 
I got 67.6 which does not! What is the difference?

Comment 3 Jakub Jelinek 2002-08-28 17:49:26 UTC
It is actually broken OpenSymbol TTF font included in OpenOffice.org.
openoffice-1.0.1-5 package has a tiny program to fix it up, please check that out.
