Fonts of the PDF of some latex papers are messed up

Postby aalireza » 2017-02-26 11:42

Hey all,

I've migrated from Ubuntu to Debian 8 stable for a couple of months now. Everything works well, except fonts!

Consider this PDF (https://arxiv.org/pdf/1508.04025.pdf):

In chrome, the spacing is messed up making it completely unreadable: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzdOjF ... sp=sharing

I evince, the fonts are "ugly" for lack of a better word. They're not what they looked like on Ubuntu or on my Android phone: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzdOjF ... sp=sharing

I guess I don't have some font and chrome messes up everything and evince replaces it with another font making it look like above. I've only faced this problem with the PDF of `some` latex papers.

I'd appreciate it if anyone could help me fix it.

Thanks!

P.S. I've downloaded ttf-mscorefonts-installer.

I tried that before. I added it again and restarted my system, but nothing has changed.
