Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 188071
ps2pdf corrupts some embedded eps images
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:29 EST
Description of problem:
Some (but not all!) eps images embedded in .ps files using LaTeX's epsfig are
corrupted when the .ps file is converted to .pdf using ps2pdf.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.latex bug.tex && dvips -Ppdf -o bug.ps bug.dvi && ps2pdf bug.ps
2.display ShadowMe.eps; evince bug.ps; evince bug.pdf; display bug.ps; display
bug.pdf; xpdf bug.pdf
The .eps and .ps files are correct, but in the .pdf file, the bottom of the
picture is cut out. On ImageMagick's display bug.pdf, the bottom is not just
cut out, it's actually replaced with visual noise.
The pdf should look the same on .ps and .pdf.
Here's the latex source file:
$ cat bug.tex
The .eps file it references is attached.
I couldn't figure out what it is that triggers the bug, but it only hits for
certain particular images. When it does, it reproducibly hits on such images,
on both i386 and x86_64, FC5 and rawhide.
The bug is not present on FC4.
