  evince does not display ligatures

Status in Fontconfig - Font Configuration Library:
  Fix Released
Status in “fontconfig” package in Ubuntu:

Status in “fontconfig” source package in Trusty:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  [ Description ]

  When a document uses a Times font, the 'fi' ligature may not be
  displayed. The TeX Gyre Termes font is aliased to Times in fontconfig
  and does not display this correctly.

  [ Development fix ]

  Identical package uploaded to Utopic.

  [ QA ]

  Install fonts-texgyre, then download the PDF in comment #1 and check
  that 'file' is displayed incorrectly (no 'fi') before and correctly

  [ Regression potential ]

  Some files might display better with TeX Gyre Termes. Check a few
  Times documents to see that they are still okay.

  [ Original description ]

  The following pdf file does not display ligatures for "fi". Open the
  file and search for "file".


  I have attached an image of the rendering of the file, showing the
  word "file", though not displaying "fi".
