# How to get bold face text of Linux Libertine with LuaLaTeX/XeLaTeX?

I am trying to create a CV similar to the one created by Paul Gessler (GitHub). I am not using the Adobe Garamond fonts but instead Linux Libertine, everything works okay but the bold face fonts does not appear to work. Only relevant code is given below, main font settings and usage of bold text, MWE is available here. How can I get bold fonts on Linux Libertine to work with this CV template?

\setmainfont[
Ligatures={TeX,Common},
BoldFont={Linux Libertine O},
]{Linux Libertine O}
\setsansfont[
Ligatures={TeX,Common},
Letters=SmallCaps,
Color=660000,
]{Linux Libertine O}
\setmonofont[Scale=0.85]{FontAwesome}

\begin{document}\flushbottom
\thispagestyle{empty}

\reversemarginpar
\setlength\marginparwidth{0.85in}

• You are telling fontspec to use normal Linux Libertine O wherever a bold font is requested. Try to remove the BoldFont line. – Astrinus Sep 26 '16 at 7:32

Use it this way:

documentclass[12pt,letterpaper]{article}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\usepackage{libertine}
\setsansfont[
Ligatures={TeX,Common},
Letters=SmallCaps,
Color=660000,
]{Linux Biolinum O}
\setmonofont[Scale=0.85]{FontAwesome}%% THAT is NOT a monofont!

\usepackage{luatex85}% only needed for TL/MikTeX 2016


and delete the complete \setmainfont stuff
