Description 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

Description of problem:
I included an eps file in a latex document (test.tex) and then have
one line of text as follows

\centerline{\bf Extra text here.}

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

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In any editor create a file test.ps with the following code: 
\centerline{\bf Extra text here.}
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
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.
Comment 1 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.
Comment 2 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.

Fedora Core 3 is now 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.

Thank you!
