    Got the fonts part figured out.
    I followed this guide - I copied the fonts from a friends computer and pasted them in through the KDE control center. For Arch I just added the packages "ttf-ms-fonts" & "artwiz-fonts" through pacman.

    Still no dice on the grammar check though...

    I could be wrong, but I don't think there exists any decent grammar checkers for OO just yet.

    Ah. It's situations like this where I wish I knew the first thing about programming. I'd whip one out heh.
