Description Deon Ballard 2010-07-08 18:27:51 UTC
I have the max_image_width parameter set to 700 in my publican.cfg file, but it is ignoring it and using 444 instead.

Comment 1 Ruediger Landmann 2010-07-08 21:25:22 UTC
I cannot reproduce this on Fedora 13.

* I downloaded an image 2118 pixels wide -- http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/50/Rue-de-paris-film102jpg.jpg

* renamed the image to "tower.jpg" and placed it in the en-US/images directory of a book

* placed the following in the XML of the book:
<imagedata fileref="images/tower.jpg" format="JPG"/>
<phrase>The Eiffel Tower</phrase>

* set the following in the publican.cfg file:
max_image_width: 3000

* built the book. 

The image was in the book at apparently full size (I confess I didn't actually measure it, but it wouldn't fit on a monitor 1920 wide without scrolling sideways)

I then set:
max_image_width: 1000

The image seemed to be scaled appropriately.

Could you please include the XML that you used and the line from your publican.cfg file?

xml file

This is happening on every file in the book, naturally. I just uploaded the one; the svn repo is http://svn.devel.redhat.com/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/ecs/JON/2.4/Basic_Admin_Guide/en-US/, if you want the whole thing.

Comment 5 Deon Ballard 2010-07-08 21:45:18 UTC
If it helps, I'm on RHEL 5.4 and the brand is JBoss (package version 1.9-0.el5).

Comment 6 Jeff Fearn 2010-07-08 22:04:18 UTC
This limit is a policy imposed by the JBoss brand.

[publican-jboss]$ grep max overrides.cfg 
max_image_width: 444

It's probably better to discuss this on the internal docs comms channels as it's not related to publican development.
