           Summary: Printing produces broken PDF with evince in GNOME 2.28
           Product: cairo
           Version: 1.8.8
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: pdf backend
        AssignedTo: ajohnson at redneon.com
        ReportedBy: seb128 at ubuntu.com
         QAContact: cairo-bugs at cairographics.org

The bug has been described on https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/bugs/443026

"Lots of embedded graphics are now not printed in printed PDF documents, they
just appear as a white space on paper. This never happened for me in Jaunty, so
this looks like a regression in one of the PDF filters?

I attach an example document which reproduces the issue. The graphics below
"Skizze" is not printed at all, if you open the document in evince and just
print it.

However, if I do "pdf2ps Aufgabe01.pdf" and open/print Aufgabe01.ps with
evince, it works.

Unfortunately, trying to convert it back with pstopdf, the resulting PDF
doesn't print at all and just causes the print job to stay in the queue

It happens with my Samsung ML-1610 with the SpliX 2.0 driver.

Reproduction recipe without a printer:

  - Open reproducing document with evince
  - Print into a PDF file
  - gs output.pdf"
