Downloaded ubuntu-font-family-0.83 from design.ubuntu.com/font. This bug also affects me on Debian 9.
If I remove Ubuntu Medium, Ubuntu Light renders properly in LibreOffice. Also, Microsoft Windows displays Ubuntu Medium's font name as "Ubuntu Light." -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Desktop Packages, which is subscribed to chromium-browser in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1512111 Title: "Ubuntu Light" font has heavier weight than "Ubuntu" Status in One Hundred Papercuts: In Progress Status in Ubuntu Font Family: In Progress Status in chromium-browser package in Ubuntu: Confirmed Status in ubuntu-font-family-sources package in Ubuntu: In Progress Status in ubuntu-font-family-sources source package in Wily: Triaged Bug description: After upgrading from Vivid to Wily, pages using the "Ubuntu light" font actually renders with a weight heavier than the regular one in web pages. This happens with Chrome/Chromium and also the Ubuntu browser. After manually reinstalling the 0.80-0ubuntu6 version from Vivid (in place of 0.83-0ubuntu1), the issue is fixed.

The new version of font package (0.831) corrects the relationship between Light and Medium weight to follow the commonly used naming standards: Ubuntu Light Light Light Italic Ubuntu Regular Italic Bold Bold Italic Ubuntu Medium Medium Medium Italic Ubuntu Condensed Regular Ubuntu Mono Regular Italic Bold Bold Italic TEST CASE: in 15.10, go to https://www.google.com/fonts#UsePlace:use/Collection:Ubuntu If the Light weight renders heavier than Normal weight, the bug is in place REGRESSION POTENTIAL 0.831 was tested by manually running in 15.10 and no regression was noticed, while the bug was fixed. The potential for regression is small.
