I just upgraded from XFree86 126.96.36.199 to Xorg 6.8.0-r3 on a Gentoo
distribution of Linux.
I noticed immediately that the fonts in an OpenOffice.org document I am
working on look different (in a bad way). This messes up some of the
formatting in the document that is dependent on font size (table column
widths, etc.). When I looked at the log files for the startup of
XFree86 and Xorg, I noticed that the Xorg installation is complaining
about missing Speedo fonts that were present in the XFree86 log file.
I didn't realize Openoffice was using fonts provided by my X Server. Is
there a problem with my Xorg installation? Can I install the missing
font and then my OpenOffice.org document will be formatted correctly again?
The font I was primarily using in the OpenOffice.org document is named
"Nimbus Roman No9 L" and I was using mostly 12pt.
I don't know if this is the right group to post to but I figured I need
