Adobe Minion Pro italic with local feature

Postby AleCes » Sat Nov 13, 2010 11:56 pm

I'd like to access serbian glyphs in the Italic version of the Adobe Minion Pro font. Although I can access such feature through FontForge or FontMatrix, Xetex apparently refuses to give me the desired output.
I provide you with the relevant code.
  1. \documentclass{article}
  2. \usepackage{fontspec}
  3. \defaultfontfeatures{Mapping=tex-text}
  4. \setmainfont{Minion Pro}
  5. \usepackage{polyglossia}
  6. \setmainlanguage{serbian}
  7. \usepackage{xunicode}
  8. \usepackage{xltxtra}
  9. \begin{document}
  10. \emph{бгдпт}
  11. \end{document}

Which version of XeTeX do you use?
With TeXLive 2010 and XeTeX 3.1415926-2.2-0.9997.4 the output is generated as presented in the attachment. Is it correct?

Yes it's correct!!! Why can't I get it?
I'm using TeXworks 0.2.3 on top of TexLive 2010, running on Ubuntu 10.10.
But this problem occurs only with Minion Pro, since Constantia & other OpenType fonts correctly display the expected glyphs.
Maybe I'm using an earlier version of Minion Pro than you? Mine is dated 2000.

Adobe provides Minion Pro and Myriad Pro along with Adobe Reader installation, so, if you do have Adobe Reader installed, you may find these fonts here:
  1. /usr/lib/Adobe/Reader9/Resource/Font

The one provided with Adobe Reader 9 is version 2.068, from 2004.

Gotcha!!!
The path was actually
  1. /opt/Adobe/Reader9/Resource/Font
with Myriad Pro and other fonts included. Maybe because I installed the *.bin package downloaded from the Adobe site rather than through Synaptic.
Anyhow, what matters is that the glyphs I got now are identical to yours. Therefore I put the "solved" icon on this topic.

P.S.
My version of Minion Pro came bundled with Adobe InDesign 1.5 if I'm not mistaken. It should be one of the earlier implementation of OpenType and probably rather buggy. That's why the displayed glyphs were not correct.
