This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

On FC6, it no longer prompts for a password.

Depending on the version of evince, sometimes additional
errors are printed on stderr, though:

Error (60112): Unknown filter 'Crypt'

(no error message observed)

Feel free to double-check the acm.org link, as the document is
still available.  My main machine is still, oddly enough, at FC4.
Comment 4 John W. Lockhart 2007-07-09 16:31:32 EDT
On F7: evince-0.6.0-6.fc6, no error messages arise.  Takes longer than xpdf to
load, but seems otherwise fine.  Feel free to close this one out unless you
think the load time is an issue.
