Comment 8 for bug 475889

Binary package hint: fontconfig

I installed Arial Narrow by copying the TTF files from my windows font directory.

after running fc-cache -f, font dialogs show duplicate entries for each style, but no narrow styles, see screenshot. Both duplicates select the same variant.

gnome-font-viewer shows the fonts correctly, and display as style "Narrow", for all 4 variants. For the regular arial fonts, the styles are "Regular", "Bold", "Italic" and "Bold Italic"

Steps to reproduce:
 - copy the fonts from the windows install:
    $ cd /usr/share/fonts/truetype/other/
    $ sudo cp /windows/C/WINDOWS/Fonts/ARIALN*

 - set correct permissions
    $ sudo chmod 644 ARIALN*

- update font cache
    $ fc-cache -fv

expected result:
font dialogs show regular and narrow variants for Arial, or a separate font Arial Narrow

obtained result
font dialogs show duplicate entries for each style.
