Original bug report to Ubuntu:


I have opened the attached PDF file from the German magazine "Der Spiegel" with evince. When printing it, the main text is messed up. To investigate further I have selected "Print to a file" in evince's print dialog, selected PDF as output format and attached the result. This file shows the same messed fonts when displaying it with gs, evince, okular, Adobe Reader, and also when printing it unfiltered on a native PDF printer (HP LaserJet P3005, HP Color LaserJet CM3530 MFP). evince's own print preview does not reveal the problem.

Thank you very much. I will apply the patches to the Poppler which comes with Ubuntu Quantal.
