Bug Description

Binary package hint: openoffice.org

In Bug #35305, turning off autohinting was proposed because Thai fonts in Ubuntu were not suitable for hinting at that time. However, with thaifonts-scalable in hardy, it can now be turned on, and the quality is now acceptable. That is, the following code can be removed from /usr/lib/openoffice/program/soffice:

# turn off autohinting for thai (Ubuntu #35305).
case "$LANG" in th*)
    SAL_AUTOHINTING_PRIORITY=0
    export SAL_AUTOHINTING_PRIORITY
esac

Besides, if possible, syncing thaifonts-scalable 0.4.9-1 from Debian would bring some new fonts to Thai users, too.
