do you use e.g a debian distribution package or download from

The upstream pacakge has a command available that will allow some fonts
to be added: OOo/program/spadmin

You could try that anyway, but the various distributions might handle
fonts their own ways so it may be a distributors issue.

Also there is different desktop integration for kde and gnome, which of
those do you use? Do the relevant fonts show up in the Desktop -
Preferences - Fonts list?

Also there is new a quickstarter - small icon in the top panel - you
could try and see if that is quit and restart there.
