I'm experiencing a strange problem (to me) with the Linux Libertine O font. I compile a document like this with XeLaTeX:

\setmainfont[Numbers={Proportional, Lowercase}]{Linux Libertine O}

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet $P(h) \propto height(parent(h))-height(h)$

When I print it, the quality of the text in the Libertine typeface is really, really bad, especially if compared to the one of the piece of math which is in the TeX Gyre Pagella typeface: the latter looks perfect. So it seems to me it has to be a problem of printing Linux Libertine, and it cannot have to do with the printer itself. I just can't figure out what could be the problem. Thank you for helping me!

    Does the PDF look fine in your reader? If it does, and while I'd consider this sorta on-topic for TeX.SX, you'll probably have better luck asking on SU. But that's just like... my opinion, man. :-) – Sean Allred Jun 3 '15 at 20:22

    @flor Sean means superuser.com – Arthur Reutenauer Jun 3 '15 at 20:35

    Yes, I meant superuser.com :-) It's one of the original sites of the StackExchange network. Thanks @ArthurReutenauer – Sean Allred Jun 3 '15 at 20:37

    Perhaps you can upload a one-page PDF somewhere that people can check out? – alexis Jun 3 '15 at 20:54

    Not xelatex per se, but the way the whole system is configured on the OP's computer. (I shoud have made that clear; it's not a problem everyone has.) My point is, it doesn't have to be the printer: it could be that the PDF output is defective--and it's easy to check. – alexis Jun 3 '15 at 21:02
