How can I make \emph use italics again after loading the package libertine? I suspect that this may be a bug in the font itself. I tried reinstalling the font and upgrading it onto the most recent version. I am using XeTeX and Linux. (Ubuntu)

  • The font seems to have issues, see Linux Libertine Initials break emph, which is basically a duplicate, right? – Martin Scharrer Jun 30 '11 at 13:42
  • I found the solution. This was a bug and is fixed by now. – FUZxxl Jun 30 '11 at 13:48
  • Feel free to post the solution as answer by yourself. Other people might have the same issue. Otherwise please delete the question. Either way, it should not stay unanswered. – Martin Scharrer Jun 30 '11 at 13:50

The problem is a bug in the font. Upgrading the font to 5.1.3 and removing the old font files solves the problem.

i wonder if you're using the proper encoding: libertine fonts are only available in T1 encoding (under ordinary latex, anyway). The following works for me

    FUZxxl uses xetex which use the open type version of the fonts and fontspec (and so encoding EU1). – Ulrike Fischer Jun 30 '11 at 14:30
