Re: [K12OSN] liberation-fonts instead of msttcorefonts?

i second that :-)

i use them too, and they are great!
i also set the Font Replacement Table in OpenOffice to replace the
corresponding MS fonts with these fonts according to their fonts families.
it can be patched globally by editing the file:
/{where OO is installed}/openoffice.org2/user/registry/data/org/openoffice/Office/Common.xcu
where the "Font Replacement Table" setting are stored.

i'm attaching it.

I recently installed K12LTSP 5EL and notice that the 'Get Fonts'
launcher in 'Install additional software' builds and installs
msttcorefonts. Red Hat has recently released the liberation-fonts
package, which contains GPL substitutes for Microsoft's fonts.

The press release says: "There are three sets: Sans (a substitute for
Arial, Albany, Helvetica, Nimbus Sans L, and Bitstream Vera Sans),
Serif (a substitute for Times New Roman, Thorndale, Nimbus Roman, and
Bitstream Vera Serif) and Mono (a substitute for Courier New,
Cumberland, Courier, Nimbus Mono L, and Bitstream Vera Sans Mono)."

I've installed the liberation-fonts package on K12LTSP 5EL and it
works great. Shouldn't the script install these fonts instead?
