Description of problem:
The reload button should reread the contents of the PostScript
file, and display the new contents. Instead, it just displays
the old contents.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a PostScript file
2. Modify the file
3. Click the reload button
Actual Results: No change
Expected Results: Display updated to reflect changes to file
This appears to be a duplicate of bug 77080. However, I can't reopen
that, so I'm having to log a new bug. It was apparently fixed in Rawhide
over a year ago, yet it's definitely present in FC1.
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 77080 ***
Removing mark as duplicate, reopening.
Two others can't reproduce the problem with ggv-188.8.131.52-1. Tethys, can
you re-test please?
Yep, retested, definitely still a problem with ggv-184.108.40.206-1 on FC1
OK, here's how I tested this.
1. Install emacs-21.3-7 if you don't have it already
2. Make a copy of /usr/share/emacs/21.3/etc/refcard.ps
3. Open the copy in ggv, see the title "GNU Emacs Reference Card"
4. Open the copy in a good editor, like vi :-)
5. Modify the title, replace GNU by GUN, and save
6. Press the reload button in ggv
7. See the title "GUN Emacs Reference Card"
8. Optional: remove emacs-21.3-7 :-)
Can you try this? How did you test?
I have tested this just now, and see that identical versions of GS and
GGV installed on my machine do not exhibit this reload bug, whereas my
friend's computer here next to me DOES exhibit it. Both of us are
running freshly installed copies of Fedora Core 1, with the same apt
sources.list, both systems updated to the latest versions available
currently, and version strings for GS and GGV identical.
I have not yet been able to identify a reason for one machine doing
the reload properly, and the other not.
Performing testing by changing and recompiling a LaTeX document. The
non-reloadable machine does show the file correctly if one quits and
Mass reassign to Marco.
We no longer support FC1 or ggv. Have you heard of Evince? It's a very good
postscript/pdf file viewer that we support.
Yeah, evince sucks compared to gv. It's slow and bloated. But that's what the
masses want, so I guess I'm headed back to the bad old days of comiling things
myself. I'm all for having a consistent user interface across apps, but not
at the expense of usability. Sadly I seem to be in the minority. Sigh...
