Is all that necessary ?? Especially the xfs and xfstt packages ?? XFree86
v4 handles TT fonts on it's own just fine. In fact, I'm 99% positive I have
neither xfs nor xfstt packages installed and can use TT fonts.
I'm afraid the situation is even uglier - the xfs protocol does not supply
enough information about the fonts and OpenOffice writer can not use them.
I am not sure why you think this. I installed the 'verdana' ttf font
files and verdana is available in OpenOffice 1.0.1 writer on my system
(Woody 3.0 running xfs and xfstt as described in my previous post). Also
available in the Gimp etc.
