I think you will find linux mint is just ubuntu with a tailored front end and as such it is perfectly acceptable to as questions on an ubuntu forum.

Looks like a language/font/encoding related problem!?!
Is OpenOffice Calc the only affected OpenOffice program? Does OpenOffice Writer or OpenOffice Presentation work?

Sorry, didn't mean to step on any toes. I'll look elsewhere. Thanks for the comeback.

You aint steppin on any toes. Mint is ubuntu based with extras already pre-installed.

Looks like it could be a problem with the language pack maybe.

Or if you are not running a 64 bit chip on your laptop, although very unlikely, it could be having this effect as well.

I would suggest uninstalling and re-installing from the repos.

Ok purged OOO and reinstalled 3.2 from the website and still have the same thing on all instances of Open Office. Have 64 bit Lucid and Maverick on this laptop and no problems with them at all.

Just downloaded and installed Opera 10.6 alpha and getting the same thing there too !! What the heck is going on ?? When I go to the tools or menu bar in Opera there are those darn zeros again.

That's beginning to sound like my best option. Just installed mint cause the wife liked it so much.
