Can Ubuntu(or linux) properly support .ttc font format?

I have copied from my Windows 7 partition to Ubuntu 10.04 some fonts, including entire Cambria family, but it seems like default Cambria version with .ttc extension cannot be displayed in linux. LibreOffice recognizes Cambria fonts, but i cannot select default version, only Italic, Bold and Bold Italic which are .ttf

Download and try it for yourself, maybe i am doing something wrong.

Why don't you instead install each of the family's separate font? – Uri Herrera Aug 12 '11 at 3:57

Check the file ~/.fonts.conf to see if the default Cambria font is rejected. (Probably you can just delete this file).
