truetype font parsing crash

Post by Felix von Leitner » Thu Jan 31, 2019 2:19 am

I had a TTF file in my font path where the field 2 is empty.
It is apparently supposed to say "Regular" or "Italic" but didn't say anything on my font.
You can create such a file yourself using ttx.

Anyway, the Office 2018 for Linux components crash upon startup. strace reveals they crash right after opening that font file.
I edited the font file with ttx to contain "Regular" now and it does not crash any longer.

Please e-mail the offending font file to support (at) and reference this discussion.
