Description Bartosz Marek 2008-03-05 19:21:41 UTC
I've changed tetex with texlive as latex compiler.
Now I can't view eps pictures in dvi files with kdvi (kdegraphics-3.5.9). kdvi says:
QApplication::notify: Unexpected null receiver
kdvi (kdegraphics): ERROR: GS did not produce output.
Text is ok, but pictures are white areas. The xdvi works fine.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.kdvi some_dvi_with_eps_picture.dvi

Actual Results:  
I've recompiled different versions of ghostscript (ghostscript-gnu, ghostscript-esp, ghostscript-gpl). I've recompiled kdegraphics. Then I did revdep-rebuild and emerge -DN world. Nothing changes.

Expected Results:  
The software should work perfectly and show the pictures inside dvi files.

Attention: I've 32 bit system, not amd64

I'm sorry but I can't reproduce this. Inside the archive I attached you'll find test.tex, avatar.eps (which is an old avatar of mine :-) ) and test.dvi. My kdvi from 3.5.9 displays the picture just fine as does xdvi.

Can you provide me with a test that fails for you?

Testcase where kdvi does not display correctly

I have the same problem and created a minimal test file. It contains test.tex which uses asymptote to generate an eps file and include this one. The resulting file is test.dvi. It is displayed correctly with xdvi 22.84.14 from texlive 2007 and without the eps file by kdvi 3.5.10.

I think this is an upstream problem and we can't do anything. Unless there is a patch available please reopen
