    Open Office menu fonts badly messed up

    I am back! I know, no one has noticed that I was gone, because I was never that active, but I left Ubuntu for nearly a year, and now, with the release of Hardy Heron, I am back in the OS, and I have missed it. It's nice to be back. It makes me happy, so I wanted to take a moment to celebrate that.

    Now to my problem:

    I downloaded the font package ttf-liberation via Synaptic, since I felt the default fonts in Heron were painfully ugly. After I did that, the default menu font in my Open Office Writer went bananas. Haywire. Nuts. Crazy.

    I have attached a screen capture of what they look like.

    I went back into Synaptic and did a complete removal of hte font package, thinking that is what caused it, but of course Open Office remains messed up.

    I write a lot. Some of it is for money and has deadlines. Not being able to use my laptop is not a disaster as long as my desktop computer is up and running, but I am used to wrting on the laptop and I prefer doing it, so while not a disaster, it is a bit painful and inconvenient. Help would be greatly appreciated!

    TYI,
    Mimsy

    Thank you! I couldn't find anything when I searched the forums for my problem. I'll try the suggestions in that thread later today, when I am not on my way out...

    Thanks again!

    I had completely forgotten I had this problem, then I found the thread when I was searching for other stuff today

    Anyways.

    I just wanted to post, in case others have the same problem I did, that when I followed Hagar's suggestion in the thread angelsguitar linked to, and went to System Preferences and changed the fonts used for applications, my Open Office fonts all went back to normal.
