Description Alexandre Oliva 2005-08-16 13:07:08 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.8b3) Gecko/20050729 Fedora/1.1-0.2.5.deerpark.alpha2 Firefox/1.0+

Description of problem:
If you browse to page 13 of the PDF presentation mentioned in the bug's URL, using evince 0.3.2-2, you'll see a table that looks very odd: some horizontal lines in the table extend all the way to the left margin, while others are barely visible.  Vertical lines extend a bit lower than they should.  Also, there's some barely visible background on most pages that shouldn't be there; it's supposed to be uniform.  None of these problems are present with evince in FC4.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open the PDF presentation in the bug's URL with rawhide's evince
2.Browse to page 13

Actual Results:  The lines that form the table are all messed up, and there are some unintended abstract-painting-like background.

Expected Results:  The page should be displayed just like FC4's evince did.

This appears to work in evince 0.3.1 in FC4 2.6.11 kernel

See screenshot in the last comment

Broken rendering from rawhide

I did mention it worked on FC4.  This is what I get on yesterday's rawhide.

Ok. Thanks for the screenshot people. changing status to assigned
Comment 5 Alexandre Oliva 2006-02-28 21:23:02 EST
Still broken in rawhide :-(  Is FC5's evince going to be unusable for
presentations, and I'm going to have to explain to people every time I deliver a
presentation why I don't use it, and use and recommend xpdf instead? :-/
Comment 6 Alexandre Oliva 2006-03-28 13:55:28 EST
There appears to have been some debatable progress: now it displays some of the
lines correctly, and some others not at all :-/
Comment 7 Alexandre Oliva 2006-06-17 14:29:04 EDT
