KDE 3.1 - KGhostView Issue.


Basically, I can't view PDF or PS files. It opens fine, displays the correct number of pages down the left hand side, and otherwise works perfectly. But no text is visable. After going into the configuation part of it, and selecting the display errors, the following appears in a pop-up box whenever I try to upon a file:

Error: /invalidfileaccess
in --file--

Operand stack:
(/home/perrin/print.pdf) (r)
Execution stack:
%interp_exit .runexec2 --nostringval-- --nostringval
-- --nostringval-- 2 %stopped_push --nostringval-- --nostringval-- --nostringval-- false 1 %stopped_push 1
3 %oparray_pop 1 3 %oparray_pop 1 3 %oparray_pop 1 3 %oparray_pop .runexec2 --nostringval-- --nostrin
gval-- --nostringval-- 2 %stopped_push --nostringval-- --nostringval-- --nostringval--
Dictionary stack:
--dict:1
043/1123(ro)(G)-- --dict:0/20(G)-- --dict:74/200(L)-- --dict:100/127(ro)(G)-- --dict:230/230(G)--
Current allocation mode is local
AFPL Ghostscript
8.00
:
Unrecoverable error, exit code 1

I thought this was a problem with ghostscript, so I tried 'gs' with all the same options that kghostview invoked it with, but it works perfectly. I then re-installed kdegraphics, but that didn't work either. Any help appreciated

Just tried Acroread, it's pretty cool - much better than it was when I first downloaded it a while ago on Mandrake. It did nothing but lock up back then. At least now it's usable. It does seem to use it's own fonts however, so verdana looks very blocky.

I also downgraded ghostscript to the GNU version. KGhostScript gets on a lot better with it, I can now view the majority of pdf files with it occassionally complaining about missing fonts on a couple.

Strange that 8.0 wouldn't work with it though.
