Description philipls@unimelb.edu.au 2019-07-30 07:37:46 UTC
Description of problem:

pstoedit-xfig conversion fails with pstoedit-3.74 (also 3.73). Version 3.74 was intended to fix a .makeoperator bug reported on SourceForge on 2019-05-07. The problem has been fixed in 3.74 but now throws a /findfont error. 

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

Fedora 29 and 30, pstoedit 3.73 and 3.74, ghostscript 9.26 and 9.27 (all combinations). Clean install of fc30. 

How reproducible:

100% of time

Steps to Reproduce:

pstoedit -f xfig temp.eps temp.fig

(temp.eps is a test file containing a simple graphic.)

Actual results:

pstoedit: version 3.74 / DLL interface 108 (built: Jul 30 2019 - release build - g++ 9.1.1 20190503 (Red Hat 9.1.1-1) - 64-bit) : Copyright (C) 1993 - 2019 Wolfgang Glunz

GPL Ghostscript 9.26: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1
PostScript/PDF Interpreter finished. Return status 256 executed command : gs -q -dDELAYBIND -dWRITESYSTEMDICT -dNODISPLAY -dNOEPS "/tmp/psinkfgGga"
The interpreter seems to have failed, cannot proceed !

Expected results:

temp.fig as output

Additional info:

I suspect this is related to the ghostscript font problem reported by Peter Anvin in Bug 1922900. I did a source build of ghostscript-9.27 and the problem persisted.
