Description Klaus Pedersen 2007-03-17 23:24:46 UTC
Description of problem: Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): evince-0.8.0-1.fc7 poppler-0.5.4-7.fc7 cairo-1.4.0-1.fc7 How reproducible: Load any new datasheet from http://ti.com, fx http://focus.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/tpa6130a2.pdf Notice that all the glyphs are mirrored(!) - When selecting text the individual glyphs get the correct orientation. Very weird! Load application notes from Analog devices, fx http://www.analog.com/UploadedFiles/Associated_Docs/56688542305236850671499306121962714110066410Chapter_VI.N.pdf Notice how all the text are rendered white on white... xpdf renders both documents correctly. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Download the documents linked about 2. open in evince Actual results: 3. look at weird rendering Expected results: Open documents in xpdf and compare. Additional info: Building poppler without support for cairo output solves both problems. --- cd $POPPLER ./configure --disable-cairo-output export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$POPPLER/poppler/.libs:/$POPPLER/glib/.libs evince /tmp/tpa6130a2.pdf --- Maybe it should be considered to disable cairo in poppler until upstream gets more stable...
Comment 1 Charles R. Anderson 2007-11-13 19:18:22 UTC
I see no issues with the TI documents and the FC8 evince: evince-2.20.1-1.fc8 poppler-0.6-2.fc8 However, the Analog document fails for me with these symptoms: No text appears except for the page numbers. Parts of the figures appear fine, like the line drawings, but not all the shapes on the figures appear correctly (the figure on the bottom of page 6-3 is missing some of the components). If you select areas of a page, the text suddenly appears selected of course. I get this error on the terminal: cairo context error: out of memory
Comment 2 Charles R. Anderson 2007-11-13 19:23:32 UTC
I have the same problem with this document: http://www.afltele.com/resource%20center/specifications/test_inspection/pdfs/OPM5-30-2000_B.pdf No text appears until I select the page with the mouse.

These errors appear in .xsession-errors: Error: PDF file is damaged - attempting to reconstruct xref table... Error: Top-level pages object is wrong type (null) Error: Couldn't read page catalog Error: PDF file is damaged - attempting to reconstruct xref table... Error: Top-level pages object is wrong type (null) Error: Couldn't read page catalog cairo context error: out of memory

From Freedesktop bug: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8399 ------- Comment #14 From Frederic Crozat 2007-10-31 11:19:22 PST ------- correction, to get all PDF rendered correctly, you need fixes for bugs #12284 AND #9846, ie git commit d62f8861689d8b9a9a837043fb78813f0407abd4 and 79d975f84bcc32e91db517d71a7312e2e1d653d4 against cairo 1.4.10
Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 23:42:25 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now, we will automatically close it. If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.) Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled these issues to this point. The process we're following is outlined here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/F9CleanUp We will be following the process here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this doesn't happen again.
Comment 7 Charles R. Anderson 2008-04-04 05:39:52 UTC
Based on current rawhide versions and upstream bug report, this should be working now. Closing.
