# Possible Biolinum bug with italic bold face [closed]

The following example produces some wrong font shapes:

\documentclass[10pt]{book}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[biolinum]{libertine}

\begin{document}
\textsf{\textit{\textbf{E L g h}}}
\end{document}


Here is what I get: (I am using OsX 10.10.1, MacTeX 2014, I update my installation through TeX Live, and I have libertine version 5.3.0) Is this my mistake, a problem with my installation, or a bug of the font?

Thanks!

• For me this produces a slanted sans serif bold font - as described in the documentation. Can you post an image or describe what you get? – Andrew Swann Dec 14 '14 at 19:42
• I can confirm; with pdflatex I get the same shapes. With LuaLaTeX and XeLaTeX the glyphs are OK. – egreg Dec 17 '14 at 21:35
• I get the same as Nicola and egreg with pdfLaTeX. @AndrewSwann Is it clean for you with pdfLaTeX? If so, what version do you have? My libertine.sty is from 2014-11-25. – cfr Dec 18 '14 at 23:27
• @cfr I see the same problem with pdflatex, at least on screen with large magnification. I haven't tried printing. – Andrew Swann Dec 19 '14 at 8:55
• @cfr The Type1 font has been converted from OpenType wrongly. – egreg Dec 19 '14 at 15:36

It's a bug in the Type1 version of the Biolinum font; the Type1 font used by the combination slanted/boldface is LinBiolinumTBO.pfb and this is what fontforge shows for the character “L”
