Description Dmitri A. Sergatskov 2016-05-29 22:32:37 UTC
Created attachment 1162630 [details]
pdf will not render on evince/okular

Description of problem:
evince does not render a pdf correctly

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open attached bowl.pdf file

Actual results:
partial rendering

Expected results:
both firefox and chrome renders it correctly

Additional info:
okular and Foxit do not render it correctly either, so it is probably an issue with some underlying library. I suspect the mesh density in the cone on the picture is too high and that confuses the renderer.


Comment 1 Marek Kašík 2016-05-30 10:49:48 UTC

could you attach screenshot of the partial rendering?

Comment 4 Marek Kašík 2016-05-31 16:20:04 UTC

which application created the PDF? The PDF is incorrect. It contains "-nan" where should be numbers between 0.0 and 1.0 (for RG operator).

Comment 5 Dmitri A. Sergatskov 2016-05-31 17:21:19 UTC
That was octave --> gnuplot --> cairo library.

Comment 6 Marek Kašík 2016-06-01 10:06:09 UTC
So I'm reassigning this to cairo so its maintainer can check whether it is a bug in cairo.

Comment 7 Dmitri A. Sergatskov 2016-06-01 13:58:20 UTC
It appears to be both bugs in octave (for sending wrong command to gnuplot) and in gnuplot (for not error out the wrong parameter). See:


Comment 8 Fedora End Of Life 2016-11-25 09:09:22 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '23'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 9 Fedora End Of Life 2016-12-20 20:43:07 UTC
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
