Re: xdvipdfmx:fatal: This font using the "seac" command for accented characters...

A more minimal non-working example:


\setmainfont{CMU Serif}


If you comment the first \setmainfont line and uncomment the second one, the file compiles. Rerunning /usr/bin/texlive-enable-fontconfig doesn't help.

I found an answer at the following:

Based on that, you can work around the problem by commenting out the type1 fonts in /usr/share/fontconfig/conf.avail/09-texlive.conf, like this:

$ cat /usr/share/fontconfig/conf.avail/09-texlive.conf
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
  <!-- <dir>/usr/share/texmf-dist/fonts/type1</dir> -->

Then rerun the command '/usr/libexec/fc-cache-1 -sv' from /etc/postinstall/

What puzzles me is that the link above says that the problem is caused by bugs in xdvipdfmx that have been fixed in TeX Live 2016. I'll look into this and try to find out why it still seems to be broken.
