Description Need Real Name 2005-03-22 13:47:59 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050313 Epiphany/1.5.8

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.

I used:
 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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Comment 1 Need Real Name 2005-03-22 14:12:24 EST
Should be:
 for i in $(locate .pdf|grep ".pdf$"|egrep -v '(^/home|^/m)'); do echo $i;
evince $i; done
Comment 2 shrek-m 2005-03-22 14:14:10 EST
sitenote: i am missing gpdf, ggv in fc4t1  :-(

$ evince /usr/share/evolution/2.2/help/quickref/C/quickref.pdf

--> it is ok, thanks.
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2005-03-22 14:16:20 EST
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
[user@localhost ~]$  evince /usr/share/evolution/2.2/help/quickref/C/quickref.pdf

** (evince:5214): CRITICAL **: PopplerPage*
poppler_document_get_page(PopplerDocument*, int): assertion `0 <= index && index

The NY Times ad is crashing evince:

evince backtrace

Page 4 of the max-rpm doc crashes evince-0.2.0-1 too:

backtrace attached.
Comment 8 Need Real Name 2005-04-14 04:59:47 EDT
evince-thumbnailer doesn't like:
But evince can display it fine.

evince isn't crashing on this now - but it also isn't displaying the logo in the
advert (http://www.mozilla.org/images/nyt_ad_large_2004.png)
Comment 10 Need Real Name 2005-05-10 05:48:52 EDT
 Page 4 of http://www.redhat.com/docs/books/max-rpm/max-rpm.pdf still causes crash.
 Firefox advert still looks different.
Comment 11 Marco Pesenti Gritti 2005-05-31 06:42:58 EDT
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.
Comment 12 Need Real Name 2005-06-01 12:55:21 EDT
During the update to 0.3.1 I get:
 I/O error : Attempt to load network entity

Ignoring that.
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.
Comment 13 Marco Pesenti Gritti 2005-06-01 13:06:07 EDT
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...
Comment 14 Need Real Name 2005-06-01 13:20:41 EDT
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.

Comment 15 Marco Pesenti Gritti 2005-06-06 06:07:04 EDT
Closing, I guess the festival .pdf arent pdf at all since they are under the
voices/ directory.
Comment 16 Need Real Name 2005-10-14 08:15:22 EDT
This document renders completely wrong:

as does

Both appear to have the same problem - garbled text.
Comment 17 Need Real Name 2005-10-25 11:04:37 EDT
and, ironically, http://www.linux-magazine.com/issue/61/Evince_PDF_Viewer.pdf
Comment 18 Need Real Name 2005-11-13 08:23:34 EST
http://www.londontown.com/url/Christmas2005.pdf is broken by evince too

Here's another:

Comment 20 Need Real Name 2005-12-16 02:28:29 EST
Where can I get the FC4 evince that worked please?
Comment 21 Kristian Høgsberg 2006-09-22 17:39:20 EDT
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.
