Re: [Orgmode] a bit offtopic, fonts in exported PDF documents

I know this is old, but check here? http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-557746.html

They don't really "solve" the problem except by doing what you did -- remove the encoding lines. Perhaps you should try verifying your LaTeX fonts packages or check with your distro repository to see what exists? I'm on Arch and they some fantastic documentation. Here, for example, are the various texlive packages I can pick from: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/TeX_Live#Group_texlive-most

Not saying one of those would fix the problem, but I wonder if you could verify you have the fontsextra package? Just an idea?

Or run 'pdflatex file.tex' from the command line to see if any errors come up when using pdflatex directly vs. through org? You might be able to see more of the inner details that way and if it's complaining?

Hello,

I'm wondering if anyone can

1) reproduce what I'm seeing
2) help in understanding what's going on.

If I export an Org file to LaTeX, the resulting
.tex file contains the following in its header:

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{t1enc}

Long story short:

The resulting .PDF file from pdflatex looks quite
I mean the fonts are practically illegible, very thin
and wiry.

If I comment out *both* of those package requirements,
recompile the PDF, the resulting PDF looks great in all
viewers I can find.

The Fonts specified in the Properties of the document
change when I use those packages versus not use them.

However, the packages are the default for good reason I'm sure,
but C-c C-e d fires up Evince on my system, so the default
is not very pleasant.

I realize this isn't org-mode question per se, but can
anyone else replicate this, and do you know what's happening?
It seems like a potential problem with Evince specifically, since
Acroread seems to handle the resulting PDF just fine.

Finally, does anyone know why the t1enc package is required, the
