Good morning,

Thanks for your kind and quick reply.
I tried to put the missing fonts in ~/.fonts but LO was not able to see
Yes, the fonts are type1 fonts.

Following your suggestion about type1 fonts, I have been searching for the
equivalent fonts in truetype (especially the famous (for scientists) fonts
from ams).
Such fonts are available here
I put them in "usr/share/fonts/truetype" then "sudo fc-cache -v -f" and PIM
PAM (as they say here in Spain) it works now.
I can now finish my congress presentation in extremis.
I still don't understand why the type1 did not work.
Anyway, your suggestion helped me a lot.
If I see you one day, I should pay your a beer.

Many thanks. Bye.

Are the "missing" fonts listed in the hidden folder ".fonts"?

It looks like your font is a Type1 font.  Do you have a TTF version?   I
do not use Type1 anymore.

Are they called "LMS Math Symbol"? or "LMS Math Extensions"?  I have a lot
of Math symbols in my very large TTF [and some Type1 and OTF] font
collection [over 100,000   ttf / otf files].  If you give my the name of
the font file, then I will see if I have the TTF file[s] for that font and
give it to you.

I know that ALL of my fonts, including specialty ones, that are listed in
the ".fonts" folder [/home/Timothy/.fonts] are seen in my version of LO on
Ubuntu 10.04LTS 64-bit.

If you want, contact me at my
webmaster  @
or my
webmaster  @
email address off this list and I will do my best to get you the needed
TTF font to be installed in that .fonts folder.

I have spent all the afternoon on this problem but I was not able to find
any solution.

Some fonts (Latin Modern Math Symbols for example) installed in my system

However these fonts are available for other programs (like Scribus for

Solutions I have tried:
1. I checked with a font manager that the font is installed. It is located
in /usr/share/texmf/fonts/type1/**public/lm
2. other fonts from this folder appear in Libreoffice but not
The owner is root.
3. sudo fc-cache -v -f
4. Reinstallation of Libreoffice

I would appreciate if you have any suggestions.

Thanks. Bye.
