    Question From what location does OpenOfficeWriter access the fonts?

    When I double click the .ttf font file, located on my Desktop, a window opens and the font is described in detail and a install button is shown.
    Where-to exactly will the font be installed when I click the "Install Font" button?
    At which location does OpenOffice access the fonts?

    For the first question, probably the user folder, which I believe is ~/.fonts

    As to the second, OOo will draw from the system directory, current user folder, and any other places I probably don't know about. I'm afraid I can't point you in the direction of that knowledge, as I've never checked into it myself.

    Thanks, you are right, it is installed to /home/<user>/.fonts

    I expected to have the new font available in OOo and YES i had!
    Certainly OOo does draw from /home/<user>/.fonts.
    Maybe it checks somewhere else too, but I couldn't figure out that yet. Perhaps somebody else knows more?
