# Summary of bug:
After installing the jsmath TrueType fonts (package ttf-jsMath 0.090709+0-1 on Ubuntu Linux 11.04), pages featuring jsMath TrueType fonts fail to recognize and use the jsMath-cmmib10 font even though it is correctly installed via the ttf-jsmath package.

# Conditions and steps to reproduce:
This has been tested on both Firefox 4.0.1 and Chromium 11.0.696.71 (86024).
It is reproducible always, simply by loading a page using the jsMath-cmmib10 font.

# Detailed bug description:
In Firefox 4.0.1, a jsMath error message is displayed, quoted here in full:

"Extra TeX fonts not found: jsMath-cmmib10
Using image fonts instead. This may be slow and might not print well.
Use the jsMath control panel to get additional information."

In Chromium 11.0.696.71 (86024) no jsMath error message is displayed but, just as in Firefox, math using the jsMath-cmmib10 font is rendered via image files, while everything else is properly displayed using the TrueType fonts.

Before installing the package, the same page displayed the same kind of error message in Firefox, but referencing many jsMath fonts rather than just jsMath-cmmib10. This made sense because none of those fonts were installed. AFTER installing the package, the error went away for all fonts EXCEPT jsMath-cmmib10 -- even though the relevant .ttf file is contained in the ttf-jsmath package and gets installed properly along with every other font upon installing the package.

# What should happen instead of the above:
No error message, and correct rendering as TrueType of all jsMath notation, including the jsMath-cmmib10 font.

# Troubleshooting attempts:
I have tried replacing the jsMath-cmmib10 contained in my Linux distro's package with the version located at http://www.math.union.edu/~dpvc/jsMath/download/extra-fonts/welcome.html -- no results. The behavior described in this bug report remains unchanged.

One of the page used to test for this bug is: http://planetmath.org/encyclopedia/LinearOperator.html
