LibreOffice – Some Fonts Don’t Appear in LibreOffice


I installed some fonts (mingliu.ttc) by putting them in ~/.fonts/

The font is visible in other applications (such as Abiword & Firefox).

But it does not appear in the font menu of LibreOffice.
When I type the font name manually, the characters display as squares.

How can I install the font for LibreOffice?

That's weird. I just tried with the same font (mingliu.ttc) and it worked fine in LibreOffice on Ubuntu 10.10.

There might be a problem with your font cache.

Try running sudo fc-cache -f -v. This will rebuild the cache.
