Hi all

I want to use the Nimbus Sans L in the condensed series, I tryed many
ways without success :(

Thanks in advance

% 1st try
\setmainfont[Mapping=tex-text]{Nimbus Sans L Condensed}
\setsansfont[Mapping=tex-text]{Nimbus Sans L Condensed}

% 2nd try with the fc-list name
\setmainfont[Mapping=tex-text]{Nimbus Sans L:style=Regular Condensed}
\setsansfont[Mapping=tex-text]{Nimbus Sans L:style=Regular Condensed}

% 3rd try
\setmainfont[Mapping=tex-text]{Nimbus Sans L:style=Condensed}
\setsansfont[Mapping=tex-text]{Nimbus Sans L:style=Condensed}
