OpenOffice don't read all my imported font


i have imported by drakfont all my winXp font. All work, i see that font in other application such as my default browser, Firebird.
But OpenOffice seems don't reconize that font. In the font list i read the old default list and i don't see the news font ( they are a lot ).
I read the faq in the OO documentation but it seems that is ok but it's not ok.
This is the result of my /usr/sbin/chkfontpath command

Current directories in font path:
1: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc:unscaled
2: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/drakfont
3: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/drakfont/Type1
4: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/drakfont/ttf
5: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi:unscaled
6: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi:unscaled
7: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1
8: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF
9: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo
10: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/pcf_drakfont:unscaled
11: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/mdk:unscaled
12: /usr/share/fonts/default/Type1
13: /usr/share/fonts/ttf/vera
14: /usr/share/fonts/ttf/decoratives
15: /usr/share/fonts/ttf/western

The faq says that this path are checked by OOo to search for fonts. Well in drakefont dir e sub dir i have all the damned imported font....why OO don't show them ?

Thx in advance for any help.

PS: this time i checked and searched a lot in this forum and in all web...i'm looking for info from 3 days...
