Description of problem:
Thought it might be useful to have a list of PDFs included in the standard FC4 distro which evince doesn't get on well with.
for i in $(locate .pdf|grep ".pdf$"|egrep -v '(^/home|^/m)');
waited until the file had finished loading, then closed each window.
PDF files under:
don't seem to be PDF files at all.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
for i in $(locate .pdf|grep ".pdf$"|egrep -v '(^/home|^/m)'); do echo $i;
evince $i; done
sitenote: i am missing gpdf, ggv in fc4t1 :-(
$ evince /usr/share/evolution/2.2/help/quickref/C/quickref.pdf
i get an error "The Application "evince" has quit unexpectedly"
--> it is ok, thanks.
That file works for me - not using ppc though.
$ rpm -q evince

WFM, although the paper orientation is wrong - it should be landscape.
I do get assertion failures though.
$ rpm -q evince

The NY Times ad is crashing evince:
Created attachment 112939 [details]
Page 4 of the max-rpm doc crashes evince-0.2.0-1 too:
evince-thumbnailer doesn't like:
But evince can display it fine.

> The NY Times ad is crashing evince:
evince isn't crashing on this now - but it also isn't displaying the logo in the
Page 4 of http://www.redhat.com/docs/books/max-rpm/max-rpm.pdf still causes crash.
Firefox advert still looks different.
Can we have an update on this for 0.3.1?
This is about pdf included in the distribution, please don't put any random pdf
that doesnt work in here... file separate bugs.
During the update to 0.3.1 I get:
I/O error : Attempt to load network entity
Running evince on anything gives:
evince: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libpoppler-glib.so.0: undefined symbol:
Missing dependency? I'll do a full update and check again.
You should update poppler. Though evince should depend on the correct poppler
version. If you could open a bug about that it would be useful...
Submitted (bug 159322).
All distro pdfs which I have now work - with one group of exceptions: the
"festivals pdfs that aren't pdfs".
Out of distro, the max rpms book now works too.
The firefox one doesn't look like it should yet.
Closing, I guess the festival .pdf arent pdf at all since they are under the
This document renders completely wrong:
Both appear to have the same problem - garbled text.
and, ironically, http://www.linux-magazine.com/issue/61/Evince_PDF_Viewer.pdf
http://www.londontown.com/url/Christmas2005.pdf is broken by evince too
Where can I get the FC4 evince that worked please?
Except for the PDF in comment #18 all PDFs in this bug seems to work. I've
logged the Christmas PDF upstream, so I'm closing this bug. In general, please
file a bug per broken PDF you come across and do look for an existing, similar
sounding bug before opening a new one.
