Hi all

I've read that Fedora now includes Liberation fonts by default.

So I just wanted to know: Is OpenOffice in Fedora configured in such a way that whenever any
document with MS fonts is opened, it automatically shows up with the corresponding Liberation
fonts? This feature has been added to Mandriva 2008 so I just wanted to know if its there in Fedora
as well. http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Releases/Mandriva/2008.0/What's_New#Liberation_font_set

Thanks for your time and help,
Digiz

I suppose that could be done by enabling the Font Replacement Table in OpenOffice Options, but I have no entries in mine and it's disabled. I usually install the MS fonts anyway, plus some vista and Mac fonts.

Liberation fonts was created by Red Hat keeping Fedora in mind. It is installed by default and works the way your described from Fedora 7 release onwards.
