IIRC it was an OOo or SO bundled in Gelecek Linux, a Turkish Linux distro
(a RedHat derivative). The fonts might have either come from upstream OOo,
or been added later by Gelecek. I don't know. But if you can't find the
fonts in openoffice.org then you must find them at Gelecek. Here is their
The page is in Turkish but layout is simple: There are 4 groups of
mirrors, each for a different distro version (1.0, 1.1, 2.0, 3.0) which
are clearly indicated as the headers of the mirror groups. The versions
on which I had used the fonts were 1.1 and 2.0. I would suggest OOo fonts
from version 3.0 and if there is no 16-segment font in it (most probably
there is), go backwards to 2.0 so on.
Unfortunately the mirrors have checked have only iso images, no individual
rpms. They use synaptic for automated upgrades, and skimming their site I
couldn't find their mirror addresses for individual packages. Perhaps you
should mailto:email@example.com and ask for it.
