libertine-legacy – Linux Libertine fonts for and pdf users

The package provides support for (traditional-)-based users of the libertine bundle, who were left isolated when that bundle switched to OTF-only form on 2012-12-11 (thus only, now, supporting and Lua users).

To prevent confusion with libertine ‘original’, there are no OTF fonts in the present package.

Note that the package is now deemed obsolete; the unified libertine package serves its purpose.

Version 2011-12-30
