Description Rui Matos 2010-04-21 07:11:06 EDT
[ this was originally reported in gnome bug 615475 ]

On Fedora 12 with these versions:


I'm seeing a bug in the way the content of certain PDFs is displayed which
makes them unreadable.

These PDFs are bills with some personal information which I'd prefer not to
attach to a public forum like this. But I'm willing to email them personally to
a developer who can debug this issue.

I'm going to attach screenshots of the same file displayed by Preview on OS X
and Evince on Fedora 12.

</end original report>

I've also confirmed that this problem also happens on Fedora 13 Beta.

The upstream developer Carlos Garcia Campos says that the problem is fixed with poppler >= 0.13.x and cairo >= 1.9.6

Hi Rui,

could you send me the PDF too? I would like to find out which patch can fix it.


Comment 2 Marek Kašík 2010-04-21 11:08:39 EDT
Hi Rui,

thank you for sending me the pdf. I've traced the problem into cairo. The problem can be fixed by the commit "Remove clip handling from generic surface layer." (included in cairo 1.9.4, SHA1 ID: bed2701e1c89095878d549cbca8f22d84f3dda3c).
I'm reassigning this to cairo.


Comment 3 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2010-06-17 11:23:49 EDT
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
