Description Jos Vos 2005-08-30 12:16:14 EDT
Description of problem:
When using the Courier font in a PS file, the font metrics seem to be broken in
some way, so the output of ps2pdf is wrong.

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

How reproducible:
See the attached small test.ps file.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ps2pdf -sPAPERSIZE=a4 test.ps
2. look at test.pdf with a PDF reader
3. the "Test Courier" text *should* immediately be followed by the "Test Times
2" text.
Additional info:
Attached a sample PS file.  This sample works fine with older Ghostscript
versions, like 5.x.

It also works ok on RHEL3 with Ghostscript 7.05-32.1.9.
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2005-09-05 08:10:14 EDT
What version of urw-fonts do you have installed?
Comment 4 Jos Vos 2005-09-05 08:13:43 EDT
This is with urw-fonts version 2.2-6.
Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2005-09-06 06:40:49 EDT

It might be more appropriate to refer to bug #161434 here (I just found that),
which is a RHEL4 bug that is said to be fixed in an errata version (which will
be in U2 as far as I can see), as linking to a FC bug does not tell a lot about
when this will be solved in RHEL4.
