Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 119923
ghostscript to screen cuts of 1/72 inch right and bottom
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:33 EDT
Description of problem:
I have this feeling based on viewing alignment tests for my printer
in ghostview that running with (at least) the x11alpha display driver
results in the rightmost and bottommost 1/72 inch are being cut-off.
Ie. A4 papersize is 595 842, however the highest /PageSize[X Y]
setting at which all the margins in the alignment test are visible is
594 841. The displayed page size (ie the size of the white block of
paper on screen) is 595 842, however the rightmost/bottommost 1/72
inch is _always_ blank (no such margin on top/left). The end result
is that the page image has no top/left border and a very thin white
In other words there is an off-by-one error somewhere in the clipping
code for the bottom and right borders. While the page is displayed
the proper size.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 1 is maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security updates
only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and reassign to the
Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and hasn't been resolved in
the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test release, reopen and change the
version to match.
NOTE: Fedora Core 1 is reaching the final end of support even by the Legacy
project. After Fedora Core 6 Test 2 is released (currently scheduled for July
26th), there will be no more security updates for FC1. Please use these next two
weeks to upgrade any remaining FC1 systems to a current release.
Closed per above message and lack of response. Note that FC1 and FC2 are not even
supported by Fedora Legacy anymore.
