Description Peter Fales 2001-12-05 12:11:44 EST
Description of Problem:

The files /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/gv/gv_*.ad contain the lines:

GV.gsCmdScanPDF:        pdf2dsc %pdf %dsc

I believe this should be:

GV.gsCmdScanPDF:        pdf2dsc %s.pdf %s.dsc

After making this change, I can view PDF files and select page numbers from
gv menu.

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


How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.   Use gv to view a pdf file	
2.   A dialog box pops up saying pdf2dsc could not run
3.   There are no page numbers down the left side of the page

Actual Results:

No page numbers and error dialog

Expected Results:

Should see page numbers

I can view PDFs in gv ok here - are there any particular ones that cause trouble?
Comment 2 Peter Fales 2002-01-25 22:07:37 EST
OK, I give up.  I know I saw this error message, but I can't reproduce it
either.   Go ahead
and close this bug, and I'll report it again if/when I see the problem.  Thanks.
