I installed evince 3.14.1-2+deb8u1 amd64

in the attached screenshot "fontshot.png" you see in the background the
missing micro sign at &#xB5. in the font dialog you mentioned you see
that TeXGyreHeros-Regular is used.

Yes, I have installed fonts-texgyre 20140520-1 all

Because you asked for this package, i deinstalled it. Afterwards the
Micro sign does show up correctly. I therefore attached the screenshot

Comparing the two screenshots you see
that /usr/share/texmf/fonts/opentype/public/tex-gyre/texgyreheros-regular.otf
does not show the micro sign

and /usr/share/fonts/X11/Type1/qhvr.pfb does show the micro sign.

Please someone decide if the problem is in fonts-texgyre or if the
problem is that this font is used for substitution and not a font with
working micro sign. I do not know, if fonts-texgyre must support the
micro sign.

Thanks for your support in this problem. I will now simply deinstall
fonts-texgyre on all hosts in our company.
