(In reply to comment #6)
UTF-8-encoded input files can be also processed by TeX
by using the inputenc
package, but I assume that XeTeX does a few additional things (I don't use
XeTeX myself, so I can't say much about it).
I am also not using it heavily as it still has (at least for me) lots of
problems when using mathematical formulas. However it uses OpenType fonts.
The explanation of bug #588156 is a bit strange and I
doubt that making the TeX
fonts available to fontconfig helps with this problem. "Linux Libertine" is
*not* a TeX font and is *not* stored under /usr/share/texmf/fonts/. Therefore,
how can the presence or absence of this directory in the fontconfig search path
have any influence on whether "Linux Libertine" is available to XeTeX?
(Contrary to what Christian writes in his bug report, this is also not what is
described in the ArchLinux Wiki.)
Texlive provides the package 'libertine'. see
) The corresponding fonts from
texlive-fonts-extra are installed in /usr/share/texmf/fonts/. I do not have
installed the package LinuxLibertine.
I hope that explains my bug report better.
