Debian 6.02 and Fedora 18 error logs and PS outputs and Document used for printing.
Description of problem:
Unable to perform fitplot in a PDF document.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1) Create any HP PS printer print queue (e.g HP Laserjet m9040) and make it default queue.
2) Download the attached output.pdf document from the attachment to e.g ~.Desktop directory.
3) Run following command and see the printed output.
lpr -o "Pagesize=A4 fitplot"
4) "fitplot" is not applied and hence some part of the data gets clipped.
Steps to Reproduce:
1) Create any HP PS printer print queue (e.g HP Laserjet m9040) and make it default.
2) Download the attached output.pdf document from the attachment to say ~.Desktop directory.
3) Run following command and see the printed uoutput.
lpr -o "Pagesize=A4 fitplot"
"fitplot" is not applied and some part of the data gets clipped.
"fitplot" should be applied correctly and data should not get clipped.
Repeated the same process with Debian 6.06 and there is no clipping. While debugging more following things were observed.
1)In Fedora 18. Following filter chain is invoked.
pdftops ---> hpps --> hp
However in Debian following filter chain is used.
pdftopdf ---> cpdftocps ---> hpps ---> hp
2)When I opened the cpdftocps of Debian 6.06(script), I can see fitplot getting applied there however somehow pdftops filter in Fedora 18 is not able to apply fitplot correctly.
3)PLease see in the attachment error logs of debian 6.06 and fedora 18. Also please see the PS output from Fedora18 and Debian 6.06 for the same printer when printed with same document and command.
Please attach the documents in a non-proprietary archive format (such as tar), or as separate attachments. Thanks.

This seems to be due to the way the pdftops CUPS filter wraps the poppler pdftops command; it doesn't seem to be able to honour the fitplot or fit-to-page options without breaking landscape printing.
I think the new cups-filters package, which introduces the CUPS PDF workflow, should make things better. That's in rawhide and will be in Fedora 19.
Thanks a lot Tim. We will test this issue in Fedora 19.
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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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.
