Re: OpenOffice in chroot -- fonts?

Tried using xfs. I have more fonts now in open office, and the "Andale
Mono" is now available, but that didn't help

What is interesting, is that the fonts are correct in the actual
contant (in oocalc, the fonts in the cells are fine). It is only the
windowing fonts (menu bar, dialog text, etc.).

I'm wondering if it could be a gnome or kde config issue inside the chroot.

Where do the font settings come from in the chroot (KDE, gnome, xfce)?
Outside of the chroot I am running XFCE with KDE support enabled.

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.
