# Trouble adding fonts to texmate [closed]

I'm trying to follow the guide found here:

and just having terrible luck. I'm sure this is an easy problem to solve, but I can't find anything that seems to help. I've been getting this error message :

kpathsea: Invalid fontname Linux Libertine', contains ' '


For a long time, and I cannot figure out how to resolve it. I've downloaded Linux Libertine both using aptitude and using the tarball found on their site and moving the files into the ~/.texmf-var directory.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Welcome to TeX.sx! Please provide a Minimal Working Example (MWE) that clearly shows your problem. This should start with \documentclass and end with \end{document}. – Peter Jansson Feb 6 at 6:49

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, see the FAQ.

It's difficult to know without seeing your MWE, but this is a possible using LaTeX which already has the ability to use Linux Libertine. Many other fonts to be used with straight LaTeX (or pdfLaTeX) can be found at The LaTeX Font Catalogue. Often it's easier to use LaTeX if possible, and then go to XeLaTeX when you need it.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{blindtext}

%% Use these instead of fontspec commands
\usepackage{libertine}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

\begin{document}
\blinddocument
\end{document}
