Slack64-C Multi-Lib / Samba / OpenOffice


I'm using Slack64-C
When access documents on my Samba server I can only open them with Koffice.
When I try to open them with OpenOffice I have no text.
I thought that this was just guna be the way life is until I started messing around with Arch64 a few weeks ago and it opens my Samba documents perfectly with OpenOffice. This leads me to think that all I have to do is install the correct fonts on my beloved Slack to get Samba and OpenOffice to play well together.
Am I correct in my assumption?
If so, what fonts would I need to install?

Thanks!

Hello Slack,

Was this a fresh install for you? The reason I ask is that I use 64 bit also on my laptop.

Yes, this one is.
But I've had the same problem on
Slack64-Current pre 13
Slack 12.2
Slamd64 12.2
Bluewhite64 12.2
So it's not something wrong with the distro, it's something I'm not doing right.

I finally ran across a solution to this.
I installed gigolo and now the text comes up in openoffice documents accessed through samba using pcmanfm & thunar.
