Using lualatex on latest TeXLive 2012 I am not able to select Libertine Mono by its full name via fontspec. luaotfload is finding the font and it is written into ~/.texlive2012/texmf-var/luatex-cache/generic/names/otfl-names.lua

However I am able to select the different styles by their psname like LinLibertineMO. Is there something wrong with the font itself or am I doing something wrong?

edit: As requestet a working example.

\setmainfont{Linux Libertine O}
\setsansfont{Linux Biolinum O}
% \setmonofont{Linux Libertine Mono O}




Uncommenting setmonofont leads to not working:

! fontspec error: "font-not-found"
! The font "LinuxLibertineMonoO" cannot be found.
! See the fontspec documentation for further information.

Here’s an excerpt from ~/.texlive2012/texmf-var/luatex-cache/generic/names/otfl-names.lua

["familyname"]="Linux Libertine Mono O",
["filename"]={ "LinLibertine_M.otf", false },
["fullname"]="Linux Libertine Mono O",
 ["family"]="Linux Libertine Mono O",
 ["fullname"]="Linux Libertine Mono O",

Can you apply this patch: gist.github.com/phi-gamma/5457042 to otfl-font-nms.lua and test again? It would appear that Libertine Mono has a quirk wrt to subfamily designation. – phg Apr 25 '13 at 2:24
Ok, I have updated the gist with a test for the font name; it should now match the non-bold variants unless requested otherwise. Thanks for testing. Fwiw, with problems like this, run otfinfo -i on the font file to list possible identifiers. The safe bet is almost always on what the field Postscript name says (“LinLibertineMO” in this case). – phg Apr 25 '13 at 8:44
Yep, now it works. Could you submit your patch upstream? The problem with the postcript name is, that one can only select a specific style (regular, italic, bold, etc.). – Tobias Schula Apr 25 '13 at 11:52
It’s on its way. Hopefully it will make it into the next bugfix release. You’re right, of course, that the automation fontspec does is probably not possible when working with psname/filename based loading. – phg Apr 25 '13 at 12:48
This question was related to a bug in Libertine Mono, which has been corrected. – Xavier Jul 26 '13 at 18:37
