Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 869806
Last modified: 2014-02-05 17:50:58 EST
Description of problem:
fop / jeuclid-fop still don't support MathML.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Take an arbitrary MathML document (or DocBook with embedded MathML) and attempt to translate it into pdf via fo.
2. fop will generate a document that doesn't contain any rendering of the math expressions.
Valid math expressions
This is the same issue as issue 703896 (which was closed as Fedora 14 is no longer maintained).
Meanwhile, I was looking at other distributions, as I heard that fop would work fine there. I found the ubuntu package for jeuclid at http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid/all/libjeuclid-fop-java/download, and extracted the relevant jar file from it. With that, fop appears to work perfectly fine.
I'd recommend that you clone the latest version from debian (http://packages.debian.org/sid/libjeuclid-fop-java), such that Fedora users can use fop with documents containing MathML, too.
Unfortunately it is not that easy due to issues in upstream packaging. I had forgotten about this package, but I will see what I can do in the next week.
any news on this ? *Please* don't ignore that again until the Fedora version it was reported against becomes obsolete. It's a shame that this has dragged on for so many years already !
I'll get it done today. I'm pulling down the sources today, I have not packaged a source using maven. Also the debian packaged for this has been messed up in the past, last time I submitted bug reports against them for this. It's not that simple. Upstream code is not particularly clean including some code that AFAIK includes Apple licensed code which has to be patched out.
Ping again ?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 18 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 18. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '18'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be
able to fix it before Fedora 18 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 18 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2014-01-14. Fedora 18 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
