Description Simon Baatz 2002-11-26 09:21:27 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
idraw is a program that uses annotated postscript as its file format. Up to
RedHat Linux 7.2 the files could be displayed correctly. However, since RedHat
7.3 and also in 8.0 ghostscript reports errors when trying to display these files.

The problem disappears if the urw-fonts are replaced by the standard
gnu-ghostscript fonts found at
ftp://mirror.cs.wisc.edu/pub/mirrors/ghost/gnu/fonts/gnu-gs-fonts-std-6.0.tar.gz

The same problem was also reported by John Heidemann in:
http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.printing.ghostscript.bugs/2432

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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a idraw file containing some Text (Helvetica)
2.Start gs <idraw_file>

	

Actual Results:  gs exits with the following error:
