Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 143403
gpdf doesn't display umlauts
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:57 EST
Description of problem:
gpdf fails to display umlauts in a chapter title in a book correctly,
xpdf works. The pdf was generated by oowriter.
A single page in sxw and pdf formats, plus screenshots from viewing
that page with xpdf, gpdf and ggv is available at
Bug 140017 is about ggv's problems with the same page.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Actual Results: Page is not rendered correctly.
Expected Results: Page renders correctly.
The same happens with accentuated characters in spanish and portuguese on my
rig. Version of gPDF is 2.8.2-4.2, here are two screenshots, note the missing
'Ã©' from 'quÃ© es DHCP?' in the gpdf screenshot, which is present in the Xpdf shot.
Evince (poppler) works just great, so I guess the 'fix' is to upgrade to FC4 :-).
Hi Oskai and Gian,
In FC4, gpdf is being removed in favor of Evince. Because we will no longer be
shipping gpdf we aren't going to be doing much development work on it.
