Description Sammy 2002-08-28 16:09:26 UTC
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 
is possible? 

Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2002-08-28 16:48:33 UTC
Absolutely nothing in XFree86 has changed.  Whatever is causing the
problem, is not XFree86.

Comment 3 Sammy 2002-08-28 18:02:57 UTC
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.

Comment 4 Owen Taylor 2002-08-28 18:50:09 UTC
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)

Comment 5 Jakub Jelinek 2002-08-28 18:54:41 UTC
But the bad opens___.ttf should be fixed in openoffice-1.0.1-5 and later...

Comment 6 Owen Taylor 2002-08-28 19:42:13 UTC
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".
