My apologies if this has been asked and answered before, but
I have finally realized that subscribing to the digest
defeats the convenience of efficient searching.
I have searched the wiki, the documentation and the manual
that I purchased, and I can find no help for this issue:
I'm using OpenOffice for the text that I write or format and
the Get Text item to load that to Scribus. I would like to
be able to use the additional fonts installed with Scribus
in my OO files (so I can become more familiar with the
different fonts you so graciously provide me).
I cannot find a way to install them in OO: the help file at
http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Font-FAQ tells me
to create a local.conf file in /etc/fonts/fonts.conf which
it criptically say you can "usually find." Not only does the
file not exist but the directory doesn't either. I have
fonts.conf files for Gimp and Inkscape and Ghostscript but
not for OO - that I can find searching the complete system.
So, I'd be really grateful if I can get advice on how to use
the Scribus installed true types in my OO.
Should I just install them with the Windows font installer?
Would that redundancy break anything in Scribus (1.3.6,
