Description chicha 2007-10-15 08:17:39 UTC

I need the ecolier font ec.ttf for a professional usage.
This font used to work with Openoffice. Since OOo 2.3 it does not work anymore :
I am able to install it on my system (Archlinux) but I am not able to use it
with OO.
I already asked some help on the users mailing list, and people using other
Linux system have the same issue.

The font can be found here :
An other similar font does work, like this one :

I have a lot of documents that I cannot read anymore, that is why I would like
to mark this PTR as a P2 priority.
Thank you very much to help fixing this issue.
Do not hesitate to contact me for more info.
Best regards,

@HDU: I'll attach a document created in an m216. In this version the fonts still
"worked" (meaning: "characters formatted with those font are visible").

While "chicha" says ec_co_pt.ttf is displayed, both are invisible in m230
(tested on Linux).

Please have a look.

Fixed in CWS vcl83.

The freetype call "FT_Select_Charmap(pFace,FT_ENCODING_UNICODE )" fails, probably because the font 
only has a CMAP subtable 3_1 (unicode encoding on MS platform) and not a CMAP 1_x subtable (unicode 
encoding on unicode platform). Previously OOo recovered from that, but the fix for issue 78023 caused a

This issue is closed automatically and wasn't rechecked in a current version of
OOo. The fixed issue should be integrated in OOo since more than half a year. If
you think this issue isn't fixed in a current version (OOo 3.1), please reopen
it and change the field 'Target Milestone' accordingly.
