Question Problem setting Thai Fonts in OOo 1.1.1 on RH9


Hi!

I previously set up Thai fonts which were working perfectly in OOo1.0.2. I then removed this old version and installed the new version OOo1.1.1. The old additional font folder (.fonts) and its fonts is still in "Home". When I open old documents in Thai with OOo, they display improperly, the size is wrong. When I type new documents, letters won't display properly just like if they were typed on top of each others...

I followed instruction in the help to add new fonts in OOo and this is easy to do, the only problem is that fonts do not display properly in the new OOo1.1.1.

I installed the Thai extension software for the system and it works great (fonts display and are typed properly in Mozilla), it seems to be only a problem with OOo.

Any idea is much appreciated.

Thank you

Michel

I gave up eventually and installed Open Office TLE, a native Thai port (from Chulalongkorn uni I believe), it works flawlessy.

Sorry I can't be more help

mark

ps if you are on a bad dial-up send me an e-mail and I will burn OfficeTLE to a cd for you.
pps If you want a great Thai distro, based on Slack 9.0 check out www.buraphalinux.org

Of course I'm also willing to send my copies of my 5 CD's by regular mail. I have also some additional useful software.

It is 4 CD's Fedora (Redhat) Core 2 and 1 OpenOffice 1.1.2 CD and can send them domestic in Thailand

Email me at nice10150@spymac.com

With kind regards,

Richard

Hello Sutti,

5 CD's is 5x5.5Bht plus Thai postal cost, guess the cost to transfer money is higher then the cost to copy.

So forget the money, I'm not out to make money on this. I will send it for free.....

With kind regards,

Richard

Hi Chefmark, Richard, Gmichel,

I'm interested in learning to type Thai; I can read and write (poorly) already. Can u suggest a Linux-native typing tutorial?

To Khun Chefmark,

I "klap bahn laew" back to the U.S. and live in Seattle. Would you be willing to send an OpenOffice TLE CD across the great waters, or suggest a vendor that would? If it's expensive to send you money, I can send International Reply Coupons. These are redeemable for stamps at post offices around the world. Or, is there something you would like me to send you from here?

Chook dii na,

"Zaltar"

Hello Zaltar,

It is not clear to me do you want a copy of Linux TLC or OpenOffice or both?

With kind regards,

Richard

Richard,

I hope I can give you the clarity you needed. When I read what Mark wrote:
"I gave up eventually and installed Open Office TLE, a native Thai port (from Chulalongkorn uni I believe), it works flawlessy", I believed it meant that there was a version of Open Office adapted to Thai, separate from the Linux TLE distro. Is that understanding accurate? If so, I wanted just the Thai Open Office to try on different distros. If I need Linux TLE to run Open Office TLE, there might be a problem because it's based on Red Hat, and my hardware has trouble installing Red Hat. In that case, how would you suggest I get Thai capability, including a typing tutorial, on an old Pentium II 350MHz box?

Regards,

Paul
