Bug#742767: fonts-texgyre: Termes font in does not render ligatures in evince

Package: fonts-texgyre
Version: 2.004.2-4
Severity: normal
Tags: upstream

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
Updating the system so that fonts-gyrex is used as a replacement for Times.
Possibly due to changes in fontconfig priorities.
   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
Opening a pdf file containing fi or fl ligatures.
   * What was the outcome of this action?
fi and fl ligatures do not render correctly, they show up as whitespace but can
be copied and pasted fine.
   * What outcome did you expect instead?
fi and fl should show up.

This is the same bug (I think) as reported on freedesktop's bug tracking


where also a link to a sample pdf file is provided.
