Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 39846
printing PDF files doesn't work
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:00 EDT
Description of Problem:
kghostview just throws PDF files at the print spooler raw rather than
converting to PostScript (like xpdf).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start kghostview
2. Open a PDF file
3. Try to print it.
PDF garbage on printer.
Accurate rendition of document.
Come to think of it.. Crutcher, is printing PDF files supposed to work?
Should there be a print filter for it? That would make this problem go away.
Basically, printing PDF files is broken.
There is no printfilter for printing PDF files, though there should be one.
