I'd be interested in knowing if the same is true for the RHEL-5 OOo which should
be about the same codebase as this.

Comment 4 Caolan McNamara 2007-02-26 20:13:14 UTC
Here's what it looks like for me. I think the problem is likely that you don't
have any thai fonts installed. Which is understandable as I don't think there
are any shipped with RHEL-4, though these are downloadable from

Comment 5 Caolan McNamara 2007-02-27 08:38:11 UTC
Can you confirm that adding the above fonts to your system, i.e.

# mkdir /usr/share/fonts/thai
# cp [fontfiles] /usr/share/fonts/thai
# fc-cache -f -v 

and then launching the thai OOo then shows content for the thai text ?

Comment 6 Jan Lieskovsky 2007-02-27 11:16:27 UTC
After following the above steps (after installing thai fonts:
. . .
fc-cache: "/usr/share/fonts/thai/TTF": caching, 27 fonts, 0 dirs
. . .)

OOo shows content for the thai text correctly too => NOT A BUG.
