Description Mary Ellen Foster 2008-01-09 05:22:27 EST
Description of problem:
According to the Grace website, it should be possible to "print" (i.e., export)
to a PDF file. However, that's not one of the options in the Fedora package --
has it been disabled? If so, can it be enabled?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a graph
2. Try to export to PDF
Actual results:
Can't do it; use export to ps and ps2pdf instead

Expected results:
Should have PDF as an output format
Comment 1 José Matos 2008-01-09 06:08:57 EST
The support for pdf requires the use of a library that is not free/open 
software and thus is not included in Fedora. Thus we can not link with it and 
no pdf is available. :-(

This issue was considered when the package was reviewed for inclusion in 
Fedora. See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=166414

Since the same conditions still hold I am sorry that the verdict is still the 
same. :-(
Comment 2 Mary Ellen Foster 2008-01-09 06:19:39 EST
Well, darn. Oh well, I've got a perfectly good workaround using ps2pdf so I
guess that'll do. Thanks for the prompt response! :)
