Aeroo report - How to install custom Fonts?

on 4/29/14, 6:52 PM 1,902 views


I found this (and it is the only thing I found...) how to install custom Fonts:

1. Install fonts into your system where openoffice server is running. The server needs the fonts to be available so he can use them when generating the forms. In my case, i had to install the fonts into my linux ubuntu server. I had to copy the fonts (type: otf postscript) into the folder /usr/share/fonts/opentype (created the folder opentype). Thats what it needs to make the fonts available system wide.

2. In a next step you need to define styles in openOffice if you are using different font-styles of one font (like light, condensed, black, italic, whatelse).

So, I installed my Font (checked with "fc-list", Font is listed), but I have no idea what to do with the stylesheets... Is it like css stylesheets? Please don't call me stupid, but I just tried

*{font-family:Akko Pro;}

into a file "invoice.css" and uploaded it as "Template Stylesheet". The result while printing the report is a "File is not a zip file" error. Does somebody knows how a Stylesheet has to look like?

Found tutorial here, but images are offline... http://www.alistek.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=321&p=1243&hilit=font#p1243
