Description Chad Cunningham 2003-10-03 09:55:16 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030730

Description of problem:
We have found that after updating the kde libraries that redhat has put out for RH9:


that kghostview in the kdegraphics package no longer works with PS files. When
viewing a ps file, kghostview displays the first page and then sits there
showing the hourglass. Selecting another page in the page listing or clicking
the next page button does not change the display. Oddly enough, if you select
another page, and then zoom in or out, kghostview will then display that page.

This problem started after updating from kdegraphics-3.1-4 to kdegraphics-3.1-5.
We have verified on several machines that kghostview works fine with 3.1-4 but
breaks with 3.1-5. It works fine with PDF's, this problem just occurs with
postscript files.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. launch kghostview
2. open a postscript file
3. attempt to view another page

Actual Results:  
kghostview displays a spinning hourglass and does not change pages.

Expected Results:  
display new page.

In bug 92344 the claim is that this is fixed. I can replicate this error on 9.
I'll check on fedora core test2 shortly and post back.
Comment 2 Seth Vidal 2003-10-09 16:45:27 EDT
This is no longer broken in fedora core test2 which is kdegraphics 3.1.3

trying to trackdown a changelog for kghostview
Comment 3 Ngo Than 2003-10-13 09:41:32 EDT
Fedora test3 has kde 3.1.4. Could you check it please if it's fixed here? thanks
Comment 4 Seth Vidal 2003-10-21 12:51:18 EDT

Comment 5 Ngo Than 2003-10-29 10:53:45 EST
