Exsample describing the issue

I'm not sure if this is a problem with LibreOffice or the font "Linux Libertine G".
When printing a PostScript file, using the font "Linux Libertine G" and inserting a character the font doesn't contain, the following text lines get messed up: wrong font, bad spacing, weird symbols (where a ligature should be).

Directly exporting to PDF produces fine results.

When using the font "Linux Libertine O" instead there is no problem at all.

I'll attach a sample document and the postscript output.

Do you have the fonts Linux Libertine O und Linux Libertine G installed? When I open the file „Postscript output on Ubuntu 15.10“ you provided with evince, the whole text is not shown with/in Linux Libertine. When opening the file with a text editor you'll see that instead the font DejaVuSans is used.

Maybe I should also add that I produced my postscript file with an own printer defined in ~/.config/libreoffice/4/user/psprint/psprint.conf

Command=/home/user/bin/ "(OUTFILE)"
SubstFont_Times New Roman=Times
SubstFont_Courier New=Courier

This script is reading the file from the pipe and writing it to a file.

if readlink /proc/$$/fd/0 | grep -q "^pipe:"; then
 cat > $$.ps # read from stdin and write to stdout > $$.ps

Sorry, I wasn't paying enough attention.. I didn't have them installed.
Now I could reproduce.
