Description pubpmp 2019-10-22 11:18:27 UTC
Si j’imprime en pdf avec une imprimante externe cela marche, voir le pdf nommé « pb ubuntu – pdf24.pdf » : tout est correct.
Le programme externe utilisé pour ce test est celui-là : https://fr.pdf24.org/

En revanche, le problème est quand on fait un export pdf avec le module pdf intégré à libreoffice, la police n’est pas respectée, pour cela il faut voir dans le fichier nommé « pb ubuntu – export pdf libreoffice.pdf ». La version de LO est

Steps to Reproduce:
1. use font of ubuntu family : ubuntu light
2.export pdf with LO

Actual Results:

Expected Results:
the correct font

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

OpenGL enabled: Yes

the same problem exists with version 6332
The font ubuntu light is not correct when i make an export with libreoffice pdf.
when i export with an external pdf printer (like pdf24) there is no problem, so the problem comes from the libreoffice pdf export module.

I assume we open "pb ubuntu - export pdf.odt" and Export as PDF. 
File-Properties-Font doesn't have "embed fonts".

With LO master 6.5+ in I get different to "pb ubuntu – export pdf libreoffice" that was created with LO 6.2 and more similar but not quite the same as "pb ubuntu – pdf24".
But with LO 6.2.8 I get the same as with 6.5+ so my PDF is different from yours. 
Test in Widows, where I don't have Ubuntu fonts installed. 
So in my exported PDFs there are no Ubuntu fonts which is I guess logical.

I cannot confirm the bug.
I can only ask you to give more details:
- did you reset user profile?
- do you have Ubuntu fonts in Windows?
- can you test with daily master LO (that will not interfere with your working LO)?
- can you test on another system?

I see the issue now. Must have Ubuntu fonts installed in Windows.
Exported PDF doesn't have "Ubuntu Light" font. Repro OO 3.3 and 6.5+.
On the same system from the same ODT, MSO exports that font.

- make sure you have Ubuntu font installed in Windows or get from https://design.ubuntu.com/font/
- open ODT and see that Ubuntu Light is used
- export as PDF
- open in PDF reader and see that used fonts don't have Ubuntu Light

I confirm with a new test, new windows installation, and installation of new LO too.
Install windows ubuntu fonts, to have ubuntu light which is the font that poses a problem to LO.
Then, create a text as a writer with this "ubuntu light" font and export it to pdf with the built-in module.
Open the pdf and find that the font is not the right one (ubuntu is used instead of ubuntu light)
If you export with the microsoft module print to pdf: no problem, it is the correct font that is used. Why ?
