FreeOffice Hebrew Complex Fonts in File Open [][][][]


Unlike LibreOffice which shows Hebrew named files in folders when searching to open a file FreeOffice Textmaker in folders shows Hebrew fonts as [][][][].odt.

I've copied Hebrew and Latin fonts to /usr/share/fonts and /usr/local/share/fonts besides .fonts in Home folder.

Distro Linux Mint 17.1 Rebbecca Mate.

From here the suggestion of selecting system fonts is enabled. http://forum.softmaker.com/viewtopic...it=font#p50464

So, I think I'd run down my system fonts again to be sure. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Fonts for example and other places. As you notice there is a ton of different ways system can use a font.

Other programmes have no problem seeing Hebrew fonts whatsoever, even PlayOnLinux applications.

So Jefro's suggestion didn't work?

That program has a user setting to select system fonts. I assume it may need to be adjusted. However there are a lot of things going on with fonts that go way beyond simple.

Guess it would be easy to make a new usb install or virtual machine install of Mint and try only this program on it to see if you can replicate it.
