This is a really strange problem, as I had open office working perfectly on gentoo, then one morning when I loaded it up I got a really weird problem with not being able to read any fonts at all on any page. If i get into a document, the text I type into it is fine, but the whole user interface is just magled. You can see this below (hopefully)




I have tried re-installing it a couple of times, I even had the 104 revision, and went up to 109 and still no better. HELP

I think it is may be due to the problem during Installation . The image here seems to be in Chineese version .If I am correct may be u r selecting chineese to Installation and it is because the localization process of OO . and also it may be problem u've chosen with OS default language ,try to modify thedefault language

It's definitely not the chinese localisation, because in gentoo, all my settings are en_us, and to install, I just type emerge openoffice-bin, theres no option for selecting the locale, and why would open office install itslef with chinese localisation when EVERY single other program I have installed is perfect.

I thought the following detail may provoke some sort of helpful results from the more knowledgeable out there - when I execute Open Office as root, the fonts are fine. How can I get this to work for the standard user??

If its working as root but not as normal user, it sounds like a permission problem or some such.
Maybe you can find it by strace-ing the program. (see the strace man-page for details)
