 A.Singh 2005-01-28 07:06:16 EST From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041020 Firefox/0.10.1 Description of problem: I included an eps file in a latex document (test.tex) and then have one line of text as follows \begin{document} \begin{picture}(500,500)(106,155) \epsfig{file=letterhead.eps} \end{picture} \vspace{-15cm} \centerline{\bf Extra text here.} \end{document} latex+dvips creates test.ps; then gv views the document (test.ps) correctly. But while printing from gv, only the letterhead.eps is printed. It does not print the other text, i.e., Extra text here' is not printed. The same happens in kghostview, in ggv. While test.ps is viewed and printed correctly from ghostview under windows. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. In any editor create a file test.ps with the following code: \begin{document} \begin{picture}(500,500)(106,155) \epsfig{file=letterhead.eps} \end{picture} \vspace{-15cm} \centerline{\bf Extra text here.} \end{document} 2. In the same directory keep letterhead.eps, an eps file with a small picture, say an emblem, and some text, say your name, and a horizontal line as usual in a letter head. 3. latex test.tex 4. dvips test.dvi 5. gv test.ps 6. print from gv. It shows the contents of the eps file and also the text Extra text here.' 7. Only the eps file is printed. The text'Extra text here.' is not printed. Note: the same happens foe kghostview, for ggv Actual Results: No error message Expected Results: Printing should have included in a separate line the centered text 'Extra text here.' Additional info: The file that is generated by latex+dvips, i.e., test.ps is viewed and printed correctly from the windows version of ghostview. A.Singh 2005-02-01 00:29:36 EST The eps file was created as in the following. 1. A file was created in MS Word (e.g., test.doc). 2. It was printed to a file using a postscript printer generating test.prn 3. test.prn renamed as test.eps Note: If the same file test.doc is opened in openOfiice, converted to test.pdf, then in gv it is saved as test.eps, then things work well. Alex Cherepanov 2005-03-06 18:31:37 EST I think that this error happens in the DSC parser, which consider %%EOF comment in the EPS file as the end of the whole file.

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.
