Rick,
Can you give the steps you followed to create that pdf?
Comment 3 Rick Richardson 2005-01-02 14:41:58 EST
Sorry, this is a Symantec pdf.  
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2005-01-04 12:21:34 EST
What does that mean?  How was the PDF created?
Comment 5 Rick Richardson 2005-01-05 21:03:36 EST
And another one: this time by Microsoft.

Comment 9 Sitsofe Wheeler 2005-01-06 09:49:40 EST
Rick, I think part of the problem is that you are reporting a problem which is occuring in a piece of software not shipped in Fedora (acroread). acroread may well use ghostscript but it's impossible to tell whether it is using it correctly without the source for acroread so you are better off talking to Adobe about problems stemming from acroread (directly or indirectly).

Fedora ships with several programs capable of reading pdfs (gv, ggv, gpdf, xpdf, kpdf ...) so you always have the option of filing an individual bug against one of those if the problem persists (although the warning seems fairly harmless if you can view the pdf).
Comment 10 Rick Richardson 2005-01-06 10:17:15 EST
Try xpdf on the file and it is worse.  !!!!!!!
Comment 11 Tim Waugh 2005-01-06 10:22:01 EST
Running 'gs -sDEVICE=x11 2552.pdf' on your test case works fine here.

I've changed the component to xpdf and reassigned.
Comment 12 Rick Richardson 2005-01-06 11:01:20 EST
This only fixes one problem.

Acroread output is fine, but not processed with ghostscript.
Comment 13 Ngo Than 2005-02-02 05:48:24 EST
it's now fixed in 3.00-10.3, the new package will be pushed as update for FC3
this week. Thanks for your report.
