xfig does not export to eps when i18n set
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:00 EDT
Description of Problem:
When I try to export a fig picture to eps format, an error window pops with
Error during EXPORT. Messages:
fig2dev: can't open file: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fig2dev/en_US.ps
I obviously have LANG=en_US (and LC_CTYPE=el_GR if that matters).
The default /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults/Fig file contains the following
! If xfig is compiled with I18N option, you may want to uncomment following
! Note that you shouldn't remove the following "Fig*international: false".
! It must be there to cancel any *international: true that may defined via
xrdb.! This can cause problems on xfig even if the i18n facility is used.
! Uncomment following lines if you use i18n text.
When I comment out the first line (the Fig.international true), I can
export again to eps format from .fig.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open up a fig picture with xfig
2. Select File->Export->ok (the eps format is the default)
3. the error message appears.
No eps figure produced
An eps figure should have been produced
It's fixed in xfig-3.2.3d-1. You find it in rawhide
It is still there with xfig-3.2.3d-1, transfig-3.2.3d-1.
Can be worked around the same way.
It's fixed in 3.2.3d-2. You will find it in rawhide
