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

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.

Same problem here. I used this https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/sailer/misc/build/1065033/ pstoedit 3.74 build

Comment 2 Ben Cotton 2020-04-30 20:55:33 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 30 is nearing its end of life.
Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 30 on 2020-05-26.
It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer
maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a
Fedora 'version' of '30'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 30 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 3 Ben Cotton 2020-05-26 17:32:39 UTC
Fedora 30 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2020-05-26. Fedora 30 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
