Screenshot illustrating the bug

Description of problem:
The current version of Poppler included in Fedora 10 is broken for some PDFs. The text is not displayed properly, and only the background images are visible. A screenshot illustrating the issue has been attached to this bug.

On this forum thread - http://www.linuxformat.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&p=73356#73356 - it has been highlighted that this is a Poppler issue, which has been resolved in newer versions.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
poppler.i386, 0.8.7-5.fc10

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load a PDF which is known to cause this bug (not all PDFs are susceptible to it)
Actual results:
The text will not display, but any images present will

Expected results:
The text should display along with the images in the PDF
Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2009-06-23 15:50:29 EDT
Being that poppler-0.10.x is ABI-incompatible with the shipping 0.8.7 in F-10, upgrading isn't a viable option.
