BUT, pdftops looks for the file at /etc/xpdfrc: open("/root/.xpdfrc", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory) open("/etc/xpdfrc", O_RDONLY) = 3 Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.5.4-4.el5 How reproducible: 100% Steps to Reproduce: 1. man pdftops 2. create config file at the location listed 3. test, it will be ignored Actual results: Man page lists incorrect config file location Expected results: Man page lists incorrect config file location Additional info:
