Description of problem:
OpenOffice worked for a little while after initial clean install of RH9, then
suddenly ALL fonts in ALL documents are "double spaced". I've nuked my
.openoffice directory, removed all font paths, etc. Nothing seems to fix it.
I saw some blurb before about certain double byte fonts being in the font path
causing this because of fonts.dir/fonts.scale not rebuilding the same as they
were distributed in the initial .rpms, but I can't locate the blurb any longer.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open OpenOffice
3. Go Blind
Created attachment 91199 [details]
screen capture of the fubar fonts
I've confirmed that this is an Open Office Bug that they think they've fixed:
My workaround was as suggested, starting X with -dpi 100. Works like a champ now.
If you guys would like to back port the patch for an errata release, I can
recreate this at will and would be happy to test it.
