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
it and it does what you want without any issues, I would keep using

"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...

Yes, there are people who require specific fonts for projects.  I had to
get an Adobe font library one year, from the people who required these
fonts.  I still have it, since they did not ask for them back.  I really
hope this issues get resolved properly for you.  If it displays "off"
but prints correct, then sometimes it may work for people.  But if the
fonts print out "off" then that is really bad.
In my case I need the correct display.

Your version is a little newer than mine, it seems.  I have had some
problems with "quality" issues between different versions of some other
fonts, that are in my "font library folders".
Beside Frutiger I have only those fonts, which are installed as default by Debian, Ubuntu...

I use only XP, Win7, and Ubuntu 12.04LTS/MATE, at this time.  Ubuntu is
my desktop, with the others for laptops and other secondary systems.

By the way, what desktop environments do you use?  I do not like Unity,
so I use MATE to have the 10.04 feel on Ubuntu 12.04 and newer.
Sometimes, I have heard form others, that some desktops may display the
same document or package's "editing window" differently.  I have not
seen it with 10.04/GNOME and 11.xx, 12.04, and 13.xx with MATE desktop
environment.  But a few people I have email conversations with, a while
ago, did tell me their desktop environment "issues".  Of course, that
was in the early late 3.x and early 4.0.x time frame.
I'm using Debian 7.4 for work on Desktop (and OpenSuse 13.1 as second Linux) and Ubuntu 13.1 on my Laptop.

For my every days work I'm on Gnome (Debian), Unity (Ubuntu) and sometimes KDE (OpenSuse or Debian)

Everywhere the same issue with Frutiger font... and only in Libreoffice.
