This is the README for the libertine-legacy distribution of libertine-188.8.131.52 (August 5th, 2012) From December 11, 2011, the libertine package supports only xetex and luatex users (opentype-format fonts). This package provides the last version that still supported tex and pdftex users (type 1 fonts). Except for a small number of directory and file re-namings to avoid conflicting with more recent distributions, deletion of the opentype fonts and related files which aren't usable by tex and pdftex users, and correcting the ligatures in the bold italic variant of fxl, the files in this package are identical to those of the libertine package version 5.1.2 distributed at CTAN before December 2011. To install, unzip /install/fonts/libertine-legacy-tds.zip at the root of a local or personal texmf tree, update the file-name database (e.g., texhash texmf) and update the font maps to include libertine.map (e.g., updmap --enable Map=libertine.map). To test, do pdflatex libertinetext[e,f].tex in doc/fonts/libertine-legacy/ It is believed that this package can be installed and used with (la)tex and pdf(la)tex as before, without conflicting with newer libertine packages. Xetex and luatex users should use libertineotf.sty in the more recent libertine packages. The libertine-legacy package has the same licences as the libertine package it is derived from: GPL with font exception (see GPL.txt) and the Open Fonts License (see OFL.txt) The corrections to the ligatures of the bold italic variant of fxl (which were not bold in previous versions), are due to Michael Sharpe.

libertine-legacy – Linux Libertine fonts for (La)TeX and pdf(La)TeX users
The package provides support for (traditional-)TeX-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 XeTeX and LuaTeX 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.
