Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

This is my first post on LinuxQuestions.org and I have already searched a great deal for the answer.
Fedora Core 1 2.4.26
OpenOffice writer and all postscript viewing applications are incorrectly displaying page size on screen, such that the horizontal is stretched, affecting font appearances drastically. This is not a problem in any koffice or any OpenOffice application besides Writer.
When viewing the document zoomed out, or in print preview, a portrait orientation 8.5"x11" document appears almost as wide as landscape orientation. See screenshots at:
These documents will print correctly. They only display improperly onscreen. I'm assuming it has something to do with postscript rendering. Updating OpenOffice had no effect. I'm new enough to Linux that I don't know which library controls postscript viewing.
If anyone has encountered this and has a fix, I would be thankful. If someone could name the PS libraries so I could rebuild them, that would be helpful as well.
