word processors don't `see' cyrillic fonts properly
I've got localization problems with AbiWord and KWord processors that ship
with Slackware 9.1:
1. Abiword does not list all installed fonts in Menu->Format->Font dialog box;
neither it does when I try to select them on Toolbar.
Thus I can not type Cyrillic letters, although cyrillic fonts ( Times[Cronyx] etc. )
are present and other X programs (Gimp for example) have no problems finding them.
2. KWord's font selection dialog (Menu->Format->Font) also brings up a very reduced list
of fonts. This is particularly strange because I can see a lot more fonts (including
Times[Cronyx]) in the drop-down menu on Toolbar.
Moreover, the Insert->Special Character dialog box shows cyrillic letters ok, but when I
actually insert a cyrillic character it becomes just an empty square.
Setting locale LC_ALL='ru_RU.KOI8-R' makes KDE show cyrillic letters everywhere
*except* where I need them -- in the document body, where it still shows empty squares.
I don't want to use MS TTF fonts, and never tried to install them.
Any ideas? Thanks
