Description Bill Huang 2001-02-02 20:35:45 EST
When using gs to view Japanese postscript,letters get scrembled.
In 7J,gs can view Japanese postscript file properly.

VFlib is included in ghostscript in 7J,though it is not included in Fisher.

[root@station23 /root]# rpm -ql ghostscript | grep vflib
/usr/share/ghostscript/5.50/vflib
/usr/share/ghostscript/5.50/vflib/allkanji.ps
/usr/share/ghostscript/5.50/vflib/article9.ps
/usr/share/ghostscript/5.50/vflib/fmaptype.ps
/usr/share/ghostscript/5.50/vflib/hankaku.ps
/usr/share/ghostscript/5.50/vflib/kbase.ps
/usr/share/ghostscript/5.50/vflib/kcomp.ps
/usr/share/ghostscript/5.50/vflib/kconfig.ps
/usr/share/ghostscript/5.50/vflib/kfvflib.ps
/usr/share/ghostscript/5.50/vflib/kinit.ps
/usr/share/ghostscript/5.50/vflib/kmapping.ps
/usr/share/ghostscript/5.50/vflib/koutline.ps
/usr/share/ghostscript/5.50/vflib/metrics2.ps
/usr/share/ghostscript/5.50/vflib/vchars.ps
/usr/share/ghostscript/5.50/vflib/vchars1.ps

Not too sure whether the message can be  a help for solve the problem.

VFlib2 is in Fisher, and I'm sure we can show Japanese postscript
with just enable_japanese on in the ghostscript spec file.
Comment 2 Glen Foster 2001-02-05 17:58:40 EST
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Release-Candidate #1
Comment 3 Crutcher Dunnavant 2001-02-06 13:52:00 EST
This will be hard to fix.
Comment 4 Nakai 2001-02-06 13:57:08 EST
set enable_japanese to 1 in .spec file and you'll fix.
Comment 5 Bill Huang 2001-02-07 17:29:10 EST
After flag enable_japanese is set to 1 in spec file,I rebuild the rpm and
installed.gs can display Japanese ps file properly.
Comment 6 Crutcher Dunnavant 2001-02-08 11:55:51 EST
we need to establish if it is safe to always use the Japanese version.
Comment 7 Crutcher Dunnavant 2001-02-09 16:59:01 EST
fixed.
Comment 8 Bill Huang 2001-02-12 20:09:10 EST
