Description 2002-04-17 11:28:53 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020401

Description of problem:
After creating a PDF file using pdflatex, a font that was used appears correctly
using acroread from adobe, appears incorrectly using gv, and doesn't appear at
all using xpdf.  Behavior is the same even if the tex file is processed using
latex and dvips to create a PS file.  

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.pdflatex attached .tex file
2.gv generated .pdf file (or gv attached pdf file)
3.xpdf same .pdf file
4.acroread same .pdf file


Actual Results:  The same symbol is handled 3 different ways, two of them
This worked fine under RH7.2.

Expected Results:  They should all appear the same as the output of acroread.

Are you only having problems with the PI fonts?  I can't get any characters to
display properly.  All I get is blocks.
Comment 4 2002-04-20 21:19:33 EDT
Yeah, I only have problems with one font (the one that has the numbers in the
middle of the black circles).  Or, at least, only one that I have noticed ;-)
Comment 5 Dan Williams 2004-08-09 13:51:46 EDT
This appears to no longer be a problem with Fedora Core 2 or 3 using
gv, xpdf, and acroread 5.0.9.
