Description Tethys 2004-03-01 03:25:56 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 Description of problem: The reload button should reread the contents of the PostScript file, and display the new contents. Instead, it just displays the old contents. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): ggv-188.8.131.52-1 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open a PostScript file 2. Modify the file 3. Click the reload button Actual Results: No change Expected Results: Display updated to reflect changes to file Additional info: This appears to be a duplicate of bug 77080. However, I can't reopen that, so I'm having to log a new bug. It was apparently fixed in Rawhide over a year ago, yet it's definitely present in FC1.

Comment 2 Bart Martens 2004-03-03 21:58:17 UTC
Removing mark as duplicate, reopening. Two others can't reproduce the problem with ggv-184.108.40.206-1. Tethys, can you re-test please?
Comment 3 Tethys 2004-03-03 22:02:36 UTC
Yep, retested, definitely still a problem with ggv-220.127.116.11-1 on FC1
Comment 4 Bart Martens 2004-03-03 22:24:10 UTC
OK, here's how I tested this. 1. Install emacs-21.3-7 if you don't have it already 2. Make a copy of /usr/share/emacs/21.3/etc/refcard.ps 3. Open the copy in ggv, see the title "GNU Emacs Reference Card" 4. Open the copy in a good editor, like vi :-) 5. Modify the title, replace GNU by GUN, and save 6. Press the reload button in ggv 7. See the title "GUN Emacs Reference Card" 8. Optional: remove emacs-21.3-7 :-) Can you try this? How did you test?

I have tested this just now, and see that identical versions of GS and GGV installed on my machine do not exhibit this reload bug, whereas my friend's computer here next to me DOES exhibit it. Both of us are running freshly installed copies of Fedora Core 1, with the same apt sources.list, both systems updated to the latest versions available currently, and version strings for GS and GGV identical. I have not yet been able to identify a reason for one machine doing the reload properly, and the other not. Performing testing by changing and recompiling a LaTeX document. The non-reloadable machine does show the file correctly if one quits and restarts.

Mass reassign to Marco.
Comment 7 Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-09-09 19:58:10 UTC
Hi guys, We no longer support FC1 or ggv. Have you heard of Evince? It's a very good postscript/pdf file viewer that we support.
Comment 8 Tethys 2005-09-12 15:08:08 UTC
Yeah, evince sucks compared to gv. It's slow and bloated. But that's what the masses want, so I guess I'm headed back to the bad old days of comiling things myself. I'm all for having a consistent user interface across apps, but not at the expense of usability. Sadly I seem to be in the minority. Sigh...
