    Evince+Code128 Font from


    I am using Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS with evince 3.4.0. I tried shipping abroad, with

    at the end of the process you get a pdf.
    This pdf needs a Type1-font called "Code-128" which you can download from the website.
    But the downloaded file contains a TrueType-font (code_128.ttf). So i copied it to

    and ran

    fc-cache -vf
    dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig
    It worked fine for LibreOffice but viewing the pdf with evince still didn't show any barcode. So I tried to convert it using

    ttf2ufm code_128.ttf
    and copied the resulting files to

    and ran the shell-commands again. Still evince didn't recognize the fonts.
    When I run
    fc-cache -vf
    I get
    /usr/share/fonts/type1/Code-128: caching, new cache contents: 1 fonts, 0 dirs
    Other pdf-viewer like epdfview, okular, xpdf, ... also don't recognize the font.

    What am I missing?

    How can I use that font?
