Package: fonts-android package on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
Version: 1:4.3-3ubuntu1.1 
Severity: low

Dear maintainers,

As per https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=38383 
<https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=38383>, there has 
been issues with the Roboto font family regarding printing. These issues 
seem to have been resolved in the new version of the fonts made 
available by Google in 2014 here 
<http://developer.android.com/design/style/typography.html>. I already 
filled a bug report on Lauchpad for Ubuntu 
but have been requested to also fill a bug here.


1) Expected Results: When using Roboto fonts in a document (pdf, odf, 
etc.), I should be able to print the document.
2) Current Results: Roboto fonts make the printer crash instead of 
printing. The printer I am using is a HP-Laser Jet P2055.

Steps to reproduce:

Install "fonts-roboto" from package. Produce a document in Libre Office 
or LaTex with Roboto font and send to printer. Printer is crashing, need 
a hard reboot.


(1) Remove "fonts-roboto" package.
(2) Download new version of the fonts made available by Google and 
install them manually.
(3) Produce a new document with Roboto font and send to printer.
(4) Document is printing.

Basically, maybe this package needs to be updated to use the latest 
fonts issued by Google?

Best Regards
