Adding truetype fonts to OpenOffice

Hi all,

If you want to add TrueType or Type 1 fonts to OpenOffice, do the

1) Run spadmin
2) Click on Fonts, then Add, then choose the source directory
   (/usr/share/fonts/truetype is the usual directory)
3) Select the fonts you want to add, or just Select All
4) Click the ``create softlinks only'' box
5) Close spadmin
6) Restart OpenOffice, and you should have the fonts available

Note this means if you add more fonts to the system after doing this,
you won't have them included into OpenOffice.
