Confirmed in updated lucid and maverick on multiple systems.

This debian-derived bug has appeared in Ubuntu on multiple occasions repeatedly. Unforunately the earlier bug reports seem to have been deleted or closed.

The problem is that arial Narrow is a *DIFFERENT* font and is mistakenly assigned to arial. It should show up as separate font as does "Arial Black". See attached screen print.

Arial narrow is a very common font and the inability to use this font in Ubuntu is one of the main reasons that I run MS office in Vbox.

fc-match "arial narrow"
ARIALN.TTF: "Arial Narrow" "Narrow"

fc-list | grep -i arial
