Description Roger Pixley 2012-09-24 17:16:06 UTC
Chromium apparently has enabled kparts which allows it to use Gwenview to render images and svgs. If you pull down this SVG (You can use the URL http://evemaps.dotlan.net/svg/Delve.svg?sys=K-6K16 ) and open it in Gwenview you can see that it draws the lines but doesn't show any text.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to http://evemaps.dotlan.net/svg/Delve.svg?sys=K-6K16 and save the svg
2. Open in Gwenview to see the rendering
Actual Results:  
SVG opens with no crashes but displays partial information

Expected Results:  
SVG is rendered properly

Note that Qt only supports the static features of SVG 1.2 Tiny: things like text on paths and complex gradients are not supported by Qt implementation. See for example this Qt report


which was closed as "out of scope": it seems that Qt will NEVER support the full SVG spec. Maybe gwenview need to switch to webkit or blink when rendering SVG files? Rekonq is able to render without problems any SVG file I drop on it.
