'Nimbus Roman No9 L' font missing in Writer


On a fresh install of Ubuntu 16.04, LIbre Office does not recognise this very common font : "Nimbus Roman No9 L". To be more precise, my old documents composed with it are correctly displayed (LO doesn't replace the font with another one), but I cannot choose it in the drop menu, neither use it to set a new style.

  • I have checked that this font is present on my hard drive (in /usr/share/fonts/type1/gsfont/).
  • I have checked that other applications manage to use it.
  • I have rebuilt the font cache with 'fc-cache -f -v'.
  • I have deleted all my user configuration folder '~/.config/libreoffice'.
  • I have tried with 5.3 and 5.4 branch of LO (official repositories).

Nothing change. What I can do more ? What do I miss ? Thank you very much for any help.
