Installed fonts not available in OpenOffice

I have OpenSuse 11.3/64 with OpenOffice and want to use some additional (ttf) fonts.
They install fine in KDE (configur desktop / fonts ) and are available in progs like Gimp.
But Open Office doesn’t recognize the new installed fonts.
What am I missing here?
Anyone familiar with this issue?


Have you installed them as system fonts rather than user fonts? All the fonts I have installed as system fonts appear in LO and appeared in OO under 11.3.
