I have installed a new font "MCS Diwany1 S_U adorned." with xelatex there is no problem but with lualatex a file like this


\setmainfont[Script=Arabic]{MCS Diwany1 S_U adorned.}

\pardir TRT \textdir TRT     


Produces an error ! fontspec error: "font-not-found". I tried to execute in the command line

luaotfload-tool --update --force  

Without effect, and the result is

luaotfload | db : Unknown format: "", skipping.
  • FontForge complains loudly that the font name is invalid. I’ve seen it complain about other fonts that luatex manages to use, but there are lots of complaints when I open this font in FontForge. – Thérèse Nov 2 '18 at 18:39
  • I can't use this font with xelatex but at least the system can find the font. – Salim Bou Nov 2 '18 at 18:56
  • Maybe renaming the font in FontForge would help? – Thérèse Nov 2 '18 at 18:58
