I'm sure those on fedora-devel-list but not fedora-list wouldn't want
to miss out on any insights shared in this forum. Let's keep the
discussion in one place.
(1) There seems to be a problem with either ghostscript or with its
fonts. Courier fonts are displayed (both in gv and while printing) as
MUCH TOO BIG. When printing, they overwrite other text making the
output very hard to read. There's been a lot of posting at various
places on the web about problems with courier vs. FC3, but no solutions.
(2) Does anyone have either rpms of ghostscript-8.15, preferable for AMD
86-64 processors and a recent ghostscript font distribution (6.00 or
above), or know a way to get ghostscript to handle courier fonts
(3) I just searched fedora-devel-list for anything about ghostscript.
Nothing except whether Fedora could legally include ghostscript-8.50,
which is under the AFPL license (similar to GPL, but not the same).
(4) I can see why there is resistance to porting ghostscript-8.15 to
FC3. I've compiled ghostscript a couple of times; each time it took me
a couple of days to remember everything that needed to be done and to do
it all. This doesn't include including all the patches... So I'd
rather have someone else do it.
