Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 72865
Math symbols are not rendering
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:46:07 EDT
When using openoffice-math symbols like = sign etc are not rendered on the
screen and show as blanks. Version -67 and 67.6 do not render BUT -67.5 DOES!
What is the difference and can we compile XFree86 with some option that this
Absolutely nothing in XFree86 has changed. Whatever is causing the
problem, is not XFree86.
*** Bug 72864 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
For some reason after upgrading when I login the first time and start
openoffice-math the symbols are not showing. If I log back out and in
again it starts to show. Weird, you can close it if you like. Apparently,
there was a bad opensymbol ttf font in openoffice that is the culprit.
Any idea on this, Jakub?
(If only occurs on the first time you login, it's still a bug, so reopening
at least temporarily)
(Moving to freetype because openoffice doesn't use fontconfig)
But the bad opens___.ttf should be fixed in openoffice-1.0.1-5 and later...
OK, I'll assume that there was an upgrade of openoffice somewhere
in the above sequence that perhaps was forgotten about.
I'm going to resolve this as a duplicate of bug 69996, which
is basically "make freetype not barf on fonts broken the way
the openoffice fonts used to be broken".
