Hi all, I'm using Ubuntu 8.10 intrepid and I'm having a little problem with OOffice. To explain it better:


It might be a fonts problem... Does anyone can help me?
Many thanks in advance :)

This is a problem caused by the Nvidia proprietary driver. Solved, but I am without accelerated graphics now. I have an old nvidia card, does anyone is using the same driver with recents nvidia cards with no openoffice problems?

System - Preferences - Appearance - Visual effects - None.
Thanks anyway :)

Well no visual effects is pretty boring. Did you use the latest driver straight from the NVidia website? I have an older NVidia card, and I'm using one of the beta drivers with excellent results. The current beta release is 180.11, available here (http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?p=1861825).

You can install it using 'sh'

Thanks Cammy for your help, but I do not need nothing special for this rescue pc (the other one at home with a 9800GTS has no problems, of course) so this configuration is ok for me. Thanks again
Bye :)
