 Jens Hardings 2008-08-04 20:48:18 UTC Description of problem: Since I upgraded to Fedora core 9, and from teTeX (using pdftex version 1.21a) to texlive (using pdftex version 1.40.3 with poppler), the beamer presentations are not being rendered correctly any more. When using rounded and shadowed blocks in a presentation, the plain text and text in description environments gets represented in grey instead of black. This happens only if a block environment is present, and affects all text after that block environment (even on following frames). Has been tested on another system using pdftex 1.40.x without libpoppler and did not show the problems presented here. How reproducible: always. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a file with the following content: ********************************************************************** \documentclass{beamer} \mode { \usetheme{Darmstadt} } \begin{document} \begin{frame} \frametitle{Testing} \begin{description} \item[Black] This text gets displayed OK. \end{description} Plain text also works OK here. \begin{block}{Test 1} \begin{description} \item[Black] This text gets displayed black. \end{description} \end{block} \begin{description} \item[Gray] This text gets displayed gray, but should be black. \end{description} Plain text also is affected. \begin{itemize} \item This works well, though. \end{itemize} \begin{enumerate} \item Ditto. \end{enumerate} \end{frame} \end{document} ********************************************************************** 2. Run pdflatex or latex on the file 3. View the result 4. Compare with results of the same file on Fedora core 8 with teTeX, or on RHEL 5.2. Actual results: Specific areas are displayed in gray (shaded out) instead of main color.

The Debian bug tracker has discussion with upstream at http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=394792. This bug is closely related to bug #437375. The fix for this bug is even mentioned in the posted changelog. Thus making this bug depend on that one.  Jens Hardings 2008-08-21 14:58:19 UTC Effectively, the fix mentioned in the debian bug tracker solved the problem for me. Thanks a lot.  Jindrich Novy 2008-08-27 13:50:31 UTC Applied. Thanks for the debian bug reference!  Michal Jaegermann 2008-10-12 05:21:00 UTC Any chance that we will see fixed packages in F9? My wife just tried to kill me due to this bug. :-) A fix mentioned in comment #1 did work, though. Thanks for that!  Tim Niemueller 2008-10-12 12:52:52 UTC Jindrich, would you mind to build the latest version for F-9?
