    Help! I Ruined My PDF Fonts - Okular and Evince

    Hello...

    I have no idea what I've done but my fonts were perfect before I decided to add more.

    I ruined Okular and Evince but -- out of curiousity -- installed Pdfedit and noticed that Pdfedit is FINE

    What have I done to my beautiful Okular

    - - -

    P.S. I already tried to going to `Appearances >> Fonts' but that didn't do anything. I've updated the font-cache... and now I'm stuck. Advice much obliged!

    Try Konqueror? Foxit? xPDF?

    Thank-you for being up on it mraandtux! That's why I love this forum!

    I think my panicking lit a fire under the *you know what* and I found the culprit... after freaking out (of course).

    I may as well share since this was a pain that dragged out all week.

    I got font happy over at Open Font Library [http://openfontlibrary.org] and installed `Times Gothic', then completely forgot since I installed a ton of fonts for desktop publishing.

    It didn't show up when I did this:

    Code:
    $ fc-list : file family | grep -i 'times.*new'
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts/times.ttf: Times New Roman
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts/timesbi.ttf: Times New Roman
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts/timesbd.ttf: Times New Roman
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts/timesi.ttf: Times New Roman
    So then I went back to Okular to looked at what fonts were NOT embedded and sure enough, Times Gothic had somehow been chosen for Times.

    Sad to say, I removed it but don't want to. Can I just rename the ttf files?


    PS... maybe I should have done this?

    Code:
    $ fc-list : file family | grep -i 'times.*'
    I dunno but suggestions welcome.
