    Thanks again!
    Dear Desd (, Hagar, bapoumba)

    I don't know whether the present message will be useful, but I managed to solve a similar problem I encountered three weeks ago. I searched and found an OpenType font file and installed it, using the Font Viewer via Nautilus. Similar behaviour as described by you: the font was visible under The Gimp but not under LibreOffice. However, the font file name lacked the extention ".otf" (a detail I neglected until today). Today, I de-installed the font, changed the file name by appending ".otf" to it and repeated the installation procedure, and this time LibreOffice also notices the presence of the font. Note: I run Ubuntu 11.04 and have LO 3.3.3-1ubuntu2 at this moment.

    In Ubuntu 12.04 I did the following:

    1. Renamed the Type1 files such that the suffix became lower case, that is, .afm and .pfb rather than .AFM and .PFB.

    2. Put the files under /usr/share/fonts/, in my case two levels beneath /usr/share/fonts.

    3. Made sure the files were readable

    4. Ran "sudo fc-cache -f -v"

    Then, I shut down OpenOffice, started it again, and everything worked fine. The Type1 fonts were also visible is LibreOffice.
