                    installed locally on system

Created attachment 139909
marked font list

Yesterday morning (13.02.2018) I got the 5.4.3 to `; Build ID:
1:5.4.4-0ubuntu5` upgrade on my Ubuntu machine.

With this upgrade many locally installed fonts (in
`~/user/.local/share/fonts/*`) have disappeared from LibO use (Writer is my
main app, but also Calc).

I cannot work out why, since they are properly installed on my system, and
usable by other applications. I have scoured (as best I can) the current bugs,
and although #103514 #104538 and #115441 caught my eye, my situation is not
matched by any of those.

It wasn't until I manually noted the list of no-longer-visible/usable fonts
that I found a pattern:

- *.OTF fonts are found
- *.TTF fonts are not found

(This is NOT affected by the "Type1" decision, of course.)

The *.TTF fonts include things like Charis SIL, Gentium Plus, SBL Greek and SBL
Hebrew, and many other my "workhorse" fonts (including the "Cleartype" family =
Cambria, Calibri, Constantia, etc.).

To make things even more odd (to me!) the fonts installed in
`/usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts/*.ttf` ARE being used by LibO Writer.
So it's strange that *some* TTF fonts are used, but those "locally" installed
are not.

I attach: (1) a text file with my locally installed fonts listed, with those
marked which fail to appear in LibO's font dialog; and will also add (2) a
screen shot to demonstrate this situation with one font (representing all the
others), SIL's Andika New Basic.
