Description James Cloos 2014-06-12 22:26:17 UTC
Poppler bug #79897 is about ps generated by popper’s pdftops and pdttocairo -ps
which Adobe’s distiller and Ricoh printers (which evidently use distiller to interpret postscript) cannot handle.

The pdftocairo -ps output complained about one of the fonts which was embedded in the src pdf and which is separated into latin1 and the_rest fonts.

I attached a cut-down example ps there (attachment #100905 [details]) which is enough to demonstrate the issue.

Both subsets of the font are enclosed in:

  %%BeginResource: font TimesNewRomanPSMT

Perhaps the names need subset prefixes?

> Perhaps the names need subset prefixes?

As reported on the referenced poppler bz, adding subset prefixes did not avoid the bug.

Something else prevents distiller from handling cairo’s definefont and Tf usage pattern.
