This is the README for libertine-type1, version 5.3.0 (2012-10-30).
This package provides LaTeX and pdfLaTeX support for the Linux Libertine
family of fonts. It (and the biolinum-type1 package) are intended to
replace the libertine-legacy package which the original developer
abandoned and which has several issues that now cannot be addressed.
XeLaTex and LuaLaTeX users should refer to the libertineotf package.
Legacy documents that do not compile using the libertine compatibility
style can be processed by installing the libertine-legacy package under
/obsolete/fonts at CTAN.
To install this package on a TDS-compliant TeX system unzip the file
/install/fonts/libertine-type1.tds.zip at the root of an appropriate
texmf tree, likely a personal or local tree. If necessary, update
the file-name database (e.g., texhash). Update the font-map files by
enabling the Map file libertine-type1.map.

Three of these fonts were modified by Michael Sharpe (msharpe at
ucsd.edu) using fontforge to correct minor problems, including
adding three missing ligatures (fl, ffl, ffi) to the bold-italic
font. These modified fonts are in the opentype sub-directory at
/fonts/libertine-type1 at CTAN, but are not in the tds install archive
to preclude interference with libertineotf.
The type1 fonts were created using fontforge. The support files were
created using autoinst. The support files are licensed under the terms
