Hello micker,

Could you please screenshot what you are having problems with, I am more of a visual person when dealing with font issues.

hi micker

i just downloaded and tested 'barlow solid' – no problem in scribus 1.5.3 on macOS (but with 1.4.6 i get the red boxes…)
the font management tool reported an error in the syntax of the 'name' table of the font…

I just installed Barlow using Typecatcher in Linuxmint 18.3 it worked perfectly in Scribus 1.5.3 (appimage), showed a ton of variations also, all seem to work (didn't test them all)

I can confirm that Barlow installed and worked in Linux Mint with Typecatcher in Scribus 1.5.3 as RodneyLee posted.  I will have to spin up a virtual machine with Debian later and double check with that distro.

micker, sorry I will not be able to try the font in linux until next week... final exams, arrgghh.  But if it is a syntax error, I usually open the font in font forge or other font editor and then resave it as ttf or otf and reinstall the new version and it works 70% of the time...

cheers,

I just checked and I see no option for "Barlow Solid", grabing a free Barlow Solid from https://www.wfonts.com/font/barlow-solid, got nothing but squares :(

is this what your looking for, I took the one that would not work and ran in through "Fontforge" linux mint, seems to work fine now even though it showed error in the font
