We are trying to transform some .docx files in pdf with customizable font (Verdana, Arial, ...).

The problem is that the pdf font is always TimesNewRoman.

We use OpenOffice 4.0 and PhpDocx Pro+ license on Debian squeeze.

Can somebody help us?

Are you using the included version of OpenOffice os a custom installation?

As you're using Debian you can install these packages: ttf-mscorefonts-installer, ttf-root-installer and xfonts-base.

We are using a custom installation.

I've already installed the font packages, but it doesn't work.

Now I'm trying to use the included version of OpenOffice, but when I type the command: /lib/openoffice/openoffice.org3/program/soffice -headless -accept="socket,host=,port=8100;urp;" -nofirststartwizard;

it returns the following error: lib/openoffice/openoffice.org3/program/../basis-link/program/pagein: not found 

/lib/openoffice/openoffice.org3/program/soffice.bin: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Do you know a solution?

Please open OpenOffice without using the headless mode to check if the new fonts are ready to be used. Maybe you need to refresh the available fonts of your OS.
