Version: (using KDE 3.1.1)
Compiler: gcc version 2.96 20000731 (Mandrake Linux 8.2 2.96-0.76mdk)
OS: Linux (i686) release 2.4.18-8.1mdk
Most PostScript files (I tried many LaTeX-generated files) are not displayed correctly with new version of Kghostscript (from KDE 3.1.1a). When showing GS messages is active, KGhostview shows huge number of error messages from GS (they seem to have no end).
Both gs 6.53 and 7.20 don't work. Same file is displayed correctly in gv and in Kghostview from KDE 3.1.1.
Can I see one of those files?
Also, the gs messages might help if you can post them.
Also, would you be able / wanting to test a source code patch? What happened
was that the security update may have been too strict and stopped people from
viewing files. In the meanwhile, the code has changed internally. Would you be
able to test that?

ditto, same problems here too, on both redhat 7.3 and redhat 8.0, kdegraphics-3.1.1a.
Same here, and it is definitely not a gs options problem- I tested the same options with
ESP Ghostscript 7.04 and AFPL Ghostscript 8.0 without errors by use gs directly. When
viewer it from Kghostview though, it generated an endless stream of errors. I would be
willing to test a source code patch.
*** Bug 57563 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
See the comments for Bug 57563.
On my system test.ps works with 3.1.1, fails with 3.1.1a and is fixed with the patch
on Bug 57563.
BTW, that patch should be applied with -R because I don't know how to say to cvs
that you want your working copy to be rev1 and specify a rev2.
FYI, I'll attach a version of the patch that actually works (with no -R). (-:

fixes kghostview problem(s) in 3.1.1a
Are there updated packags underway? This bug is really annoying and I sadly don't have the
time to build my own packages. :-(
