View Full Version : [SOLVED] Wrong font appearing in .odt document in Libreoffice

May 1st, 2018, 12:25 PM
I have recently installed ubuntu 18.04. When I go to Show Application - Utilities - Fonts, it is indicated that the Courier 10 Pitch font is installed. There exists a .odt document that contains text in the Courier 10 Pitch font. When I open this document using Libreoffice, the text does not appear as Courier 10 Pitch. How can I modify this system such that the correct font gets displayed in Libreoffice?

from a quick search it is supposed to be a bug for libbreoffice >=5.3. Download the font from here (https://www.fontsmarket.com/font-download/courier-10-pitch) and place it under .fonts folder in your ubu system (mind the dot in front of the name, which means that is a hidden folder inside your home folder). If this folder does not exist, just create it.
Open libbreoffice writer and it will be there.
