Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I've added fonts to ubuntu 12.10 Beta 2 (with .fonts folder in "home"). I can use the fonts, but, while putting points (voweling in Hebrew), the letters get messed up.

Here is a photo-the words in the second paragraph are not showed correctly: enter image description here

Also, it seems to happen in LibreOffice but not in INKSCAPE.

Is there a way to fix it?

Thanks to you all.

What is the font in question? – taneli Oct 4 '12 at 14:56

I haven't a clue what the correct Hebrew font should look like, it's all Greek to me (bad joke, sorry).

Since only some paragraphs display correctly I suspect you have a problem with formatting.

  1. Try Ctrl + A to select everything, then Ctrl + M to clear direct formatting.
  2. Failing that, you should select a bit of the normal text and examine the differences (if any) between the Paragraph Styles, found in Format -> Paragraph...

Note that if you try the first thing and lose the desired formatting, (e.g. all the text is now 'wrong') you can press Ctrl + Z to undo, then carefully compare any formating differences as explained in step 2, to apply the desired effect.

This probably is a bug so I'll cast another close vote (bugs are off-topic here), but if this fixes things please update your question. If it's not a bug I'll be happy to vote to re-open it.
