The documentation for libgreek says: the libertine-legacy (or earlier) package must be installed on your system for libgreek to work for math mode. That package is available from CTAN: /obsolete/fonts/libertine-legacy

The following is really just a lengthy follow-up comment on some of the issues discussed in the earlier answers that address the OP's questions. Because this comment is too long to fit in an ordinary-comment space, I'm posting it as a separate answer. I believe the OP raises two separate issues: How to break up the fl-ligature in a word such as "Auflage" ...

Let's walk through all cases: Au{f}lage (or Auf{l}age or Auf{}lage}) (I) This does not break up the ligature at all in luatex, and in fact (contrary to widespread belief) has never reliably done so even in pre-luatex engines (eg. pdftex, tex). Auf"-lage (II) This shortcut from German babel inserts a hyphenation point allowing hyphenation in the ...

The lines option can't always compute precisely the font scale necessary for make the initial exactly fit; you can use the loversize option: % arara: lualatex \documentclass[ngerman]{article} \usepackage{fontspec} \setmainfont[Ligatures=TeX]{Linux Libertine O} \usepackage[final]{microtype} \usepackage{lettrine} \usepackage{babel} \usepackage{blindtext} ...

Activate the option Ligatures = NoCommon. See the fontspec manual under 10.1. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{fontspec} \setmainfont[Ligatures={TeX,NoCommon}]{Linux Libertine O} \begin{document} Auflage \end{document} To turn off ligatures for "single cases" (if I understand you correctly when you use that phrase), you can add the Ligatures = ...

Did you try the lraise parameter? It would look like this. \lettrine[lines=3, slope=-0.5em, nindent=0pt, lhang=0.35, lraise=0.1]{V}{ariablen} Viel Spaß!

There are a couple of possible answers. One is to use {} to encase the second letter of the (not to be made into a) ligature pair, in this case: Auf{l}age, Suf{f}rage. OOPS, I JUST NOTICED: this solution doesn't work under LuaLatex. Instead, try the explicit correction for italics, Auf\/lage. A second possible approach is the selnolig (selective no ...

When \textit{l}l is found, LaTeX adds the italic correction that should compensate for the change from a slanted font to an upright one. Let's consider the following input: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{fontspec} \setmainfont[Ligatures=TeX]{Linux Libertine O} \newfontfamily{\HT}{Hoefler Text} \newfontfamily{\BV}{Baskerville} \begin{document} ...
