After I downloaded the extension, I was expecting to get the font changed but the following statement appears:
"This front has not been installed.The closest available front will be used."
what does this mean? If the font can not be installed, what is the extension for? what did I have to download it in the first place? I have tried to look for a solution from the LibreOffice forum but seems there is no clear solution.
Let me know if you have any solution.
