Description of problem:
In RH 7.1 we imported an image with "import -page 11x17+43+43 -rotate +90
image.ps2" and then printed to an HP Laserjet 8000 (papersize set to 11x17)
with "lpr -Pbigjet image.ps2". Now the commands don't work on 7.2. Instead of a
nice printout, we get one line on a 11x17 page then hundreds of letter sized
pages of gobbledygook. We can do the import on a 7.1 system, copy the file to
the 7.2 system and print it OK. If we import on the 7.2 system, copy the file
to the 7.1 system and print, we have the problem - hundreds of pages of
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): ImageMagick-5.3.8-
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use printtool to set the default papersize of the bigjet print queue to
11x17. (bigjet points to an HP Laserjet 8000).
2. Open an window with an image and enlarge to about 1280x1024.
3. In an xterm window, issue command "import -page 11x17+43+43 -rotate +90
image.ps2". The mouse pointer turns into a crosshair.
4. Click on the window opened in step 2 with the mouse.
5. In the window opened in step 3, issue the command "lpr -Zbigjet image.ps2".
Actual Results: Printer prints one line on an 11x17 page then hundreds of
letter sized pages of gobbledygook.
Expected Results: Image printed in landscape orientation on 11x17 paper.
If you import the image on a Red Hat 7.1 machine, ftp the file to a 7.2 machine
and print, it prints OK.
If you import the image on a Red Hat 7.2 machine, ftp the file to a 7.1 machine
and print, you get hundreds of pages of gobbledygook.
The image file appears fine when viewed in gv and ImageMagick.
Red Hat 7.1 has ImageMagick-5.2.7-2 and Red Hat 7.2 has ImageMagick-5.3-8-3.
Fixed in 188.8.131.52-1
