Hi I'm using the Frutiger Font (ttf, linotype) for several Years now
for my work an have al lot of Documents and Templates.

Since upgrading to ubuntu 13.10 (libreoffice upgraded to 4.1.2) the
Frutiger isn't displayed correct in libreoffice-writer. Only the top
half of the Font is visible. If I'm marking Text with the Mouse, the
mark is beside the words. And the spaces between lines of the same
paragraph are different. Typed Characters are displayed after a long

But if I export the Document to PDF, everything is right. If I use
Frutiger with XeTeX everything is OK. Now I switched to opensuse with
libreoffice 3.6 - everything is fine.

I tryed to Download an install libreoffice 4.1.3 from

Does anyone else have similar Problems - and how can I solve them?

I have the "Frutiger Linotype" set [normal, bold, italic, etc.]
from the
early 2000's [version 1.13] and they work with Ubuntu and LO 4.0.5.

I see that you have tried 3.6 and 4.1.2.

For now, try 4.0.6 [latest of that line] to see if that will OK for
to use till people can figure out why you are having problems.

4.0.6, downloaded from No problem, Fonts are
displayed normal.

hopefully by the time of 4.1.5 this issue will be solved.

4.1.4 comes out at the end of December and 4.1.5 in the first weeks of

There are people who may not upgrade to the 4.1.x line, just because
4.0.x works fine for them.  Some people are still using 3.6.6 or other
earlier versions.

So until the 4.1.x line, or later the 4.2.x line, gets to where you like
it and it does what you want without any issues, I would keep using

Tested also in, same problem, made a comment on bug 68467
"Other: Font (Frutiger family) is displayed wrong on Mac OS X"


Has anyone seen this font issue with Frutiger, or other fonts, on
Windows or Linux?  Is this just a Mac issue?
I'm working on Linux (Debian 7.4, Ubuntu 13.10, Opensuse 13.1)

I am asking this, since I have some packages that install several
Frutiger fonts [if I remember correctly] during their "standard" install
process.  I do not use Mac, so if anyone has seem this on Windows, or
Linux, then I will have to look into this.  To be honest, I tend to
remove unneeded fonts, like Frutiger, since I have too many "specialty"
fonts to keep in my font folders for "specialty" work.  Since I
currently do not use that font, I removed it.
I can't, cause I need it for my work...

I stated I have the "early 2000's" era fonts.  I do not remember if you
are using newer ones or not.  I just wonder if there are any differences
in the old versions of the font set, vs. the newer versions.
Mine is Version 6.4 from 2002...
