Viewed in Okular with poppler 0.8.7-1ubuntu1
Comment 3 Stuart Jarvis 2009-01-20 05:42:57 UTC
Same symptoms with poppler 0.87-1.fc10 (Fedora) tested using okular and evince.

There is also text missing on the first page - in top right corner where a few dots are visible. All 'text' that can be seen is in fact graphics I think.

Works ok in Adobe Reader 8 on Windows (tested) and apparently in older poppler versions: (according to http://dot.kde.org/1232445901/1232453792/1232454813/)
Comment 4 Albert Astals Cid 2009-01-20 14:10:44 UTC
Works for me in poppler 0.10.3 if it still fails for you after upgrading to this or a later version please reopen the bug.
Comment 5 Stuart Jarvis 2009-01-21 09:15:36 UTC
Tested with poppler-0.10.3-1.fc11 (from rawhide on fc-10) still the same symptoms.

Running okular with this pdf from konsole I get:

'Error: Illegal entry in bfrange block in ToUnicode CMap'

many times, followed by: 

'okular(3255)/okular (Poppler) PDFGenerator::abstractTextPage: getting text page in generator pdf - rotation: 0 '

once, then back to 'Error: Illegal....'

In case those have any meaning to you.

Which freetype version? 2.3.7 is known to have several problems, can you try either with 2.3.8?
Comment 7 Albert Astals Cid 2009-01-21 11:26:51 UTC
I've just tested with both freetype 2.3.7 and 2.3.8, 2.3.7 fails and 2.3.8 works so i'm closing again. Please reopen if you happen to have 2.3.8
Comment 8 Stuart Jarvis 2009-01-21 11:53:17 UTC
Yep, fixed with freetype 2.3.8, I had 2.3.7 before - thanks for looking in to this.
