Re: OpenOffice in chroot -- fonts?

I managed to get openoffice to install fine in a ia32 chroot
environment (from pages like [1]). It runs okay, but everything is
extremely large. The fonts (menu bars, dialogs, etc.) are about 18pt
font or so (buttons in the dialogs are huge).

I'm not sure if this is a dpi, font or resolution problem. Would
appreciate some advice. I'm starting to debate ditching amd64 for i386
as much as I'd hate to to avoid all these problems (mplayer & codecs,
flash in firefox, openoffice, wine, etc.).

Use a font server like xfs.  That way, the same fonts will be
available to 32-bit and 64-bit software.

Alternatively, install your font collection in the chroot too.
