i create the otf and ttf from the fontforge-source file.

That is the problem. If i install only the otf files, i can not use the 
font in openoffice.org. If i install both, xetex use the ttf version.

It would nice, if i can set the extension (such as 
DeclareGraphicsExtensions in the graphics package) in which order the 
font is load.
