[Tfug] OpenOffice file exports to PDF

I set up a directory http://charles.kissbrothers.com/files containing four files: 1) the original .odt, 2) the .export.pdf 3) the printtofile.ps and 4) the ps2pdf.pdf.

You can see the errors only [checked and rechecked] in the .export.pdf file.  They are amusing.  For example, the third line of page one contains a 'twig' shaped font instead of a '1' at a subscript. Second line, page two, has a 'gamma' looking thing instead of a '2', more errors: there's a 'box' instead of a 'zero' at the middle of the page.

I certainly am interested to find out if it is a corrupt .odt file or a corrupt export process. Let me know (if you have the time). I have to say, that nothing else on my linux install, including audio, video, games, the virtualbox windows partitions and all it's software, shared folders, games, etc. (Thanks John!) work as perfectly as I can tell.

Thanks again,
