fonts missing from adobe acroread v9.5.5

Asked by Paul Andrews on 2014-04-23

I have Ubuntu 12.04 installed. I have acroread v 9.5.5 installed. I have installed ttf-mscorefonts-installer.

I have many PDF documents that use TimesNewRoman and other fonts that acroread has trouble rendering. In acroread, if I select File -> Properties and then select the Fonts tab, I see comments like this: Arial, type: TrueType, Encoding: Ansi, Actual Font: Adobe Sans MM, Actual Font type: Type 1. Below the previous comment is this: Arial (Embedded), Type: TrueType (CID), Encoding: Identity-H. These comments are identical for TimesNewRoman. Not only is it a problem on the screen, but printing is almost as bad.

The PDFs in question, look fine from within Firefox or when I use Document Viewer. However, I prefer acroread for various other reasons.

I have the following: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts/ ....

I have logged in/out, I have tried > sudo fc-cache -fv. Nothing seems to work and I can not find this particular question asked and answered anywhere on the web.

Is there a setup file for acroread that needs edits? What else can I do?

Thanks
