Bug#235610: openoffice.org: Texts in menus and dialogs are broken in ko_KR.eucKR
In LANG=ko_KR.eucKR, (non-ASCII) characters in menus and dialogs
of openoffice are shown as rectangles.
I have installed ttf-baekmuk (korean true type font),
xfonts-baekmuk (75 dpi Korean font), msttcorefonts (which inclues Arial),
xfonts-base(-transcodes), and so on.
* Work-around: I solved this problem by setting the font replacement table
from "Arial" to "Baekmuk Gulim". But it makes me not use Arial font
in ooimpress, etc.
*NOTE* that the replacement from "Andale Sans UI" to Korean font,
which is mentions in README.Debian.gz, DOES NOT WORK. I guess there are
something strange in building openoffice.
Since I want to use Arial font in my presentation, I tried as follows.
But both trials are failed.
* First try: remove msttcorefonts.
this problem originate from the Arial font. Therefore I removed
msttcorefonts packages, which includes Arial font. But, this changes
the rectangles (broken characters) to blanks. :-P
* Second try: modify VCL.xcu
I modified the font mapping file,
to designate Baekmuk Gulim as the font for UI_FIXED and UI_SANS
in ko-kr locale. But, it does not work.
Anyway, I want to use Arial font (or its alternative) and using it in
