Unable to use the Bitstream Charter font (installed in /usr/share/X11/fonts/Type1) in some LO document
Last modified: 2017-07-14 04:28:44 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm trying to use the Bitstream Charter in a new LO document (indepently from odt/odp/odg), but it is not listed in LO from the available fonts.
On The other hand, abiword offers Bitstream Charter for usage, and I can format some text into Bitstream Charter.
If running fc-list, I find Bitstream Charter:
fc-list|grep -i charter
/usr/share/X11/fonts/Type1/c0648bt_.pfb: Bitstream Charter:style=Regular
/usr/share/X11/fonts/Type1/c0633bt_.pfb: Bitstream Charter:style=Bold Italic
/usr/share/X11/fonts/Type1/c0649bt_.pfb: Bitstream Charter:style=Italic
/usr/share/X11/fonts/Type1/c0632bt_.pfb: Bitstream Charter:style=Bold
But nothing /usr/share/fonts is not listed.
It seems LO does not use /usr/share/X11/fonts/Type1, but abiword seems to do.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Copying /usr/share/X11/fonts to ~/.fonts (and then running fc-cache) does not help
Support for Type 1 fonts has been removed (Khaled Hosny) commit 48304cb (https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=48304cb5b4d8df71463837e2e48aa7c4d9594df9)
It cannot be that I have to convert all concerned Type1 fonts to the fitting format :-(
Or do you know a better solution?
