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
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. launch kghostview
2. open a postscript file
3. attempt to view another page
kghostview displays a spinning hourglass and does not change pages.
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.
This is no longer broken in fedora core test2 which is kdegraphics 3.1.3
trying to trackdown a changelog for kghostview
Fedora test3 has kde 3.1.4. Could you check it please if it's fixed here? thanks
yes. It works in 3.1.4
it's fixed in current rawhide
