Need to update GhostScript package in the Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy) Repository
 
Hello,


*


This is regarding the problem some users of Ubuntu 7.10 have
faced with printing of secure PDF files using Adobe Reader 8.1.1.* Here
are some links for reference on this issue:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=3846261
(I have posted an entry here with id gaurav_anywhere)


*


The reason for this issue is that Ubuntu 7.10 currently
installs GhostScript version “8.61 pre-release” from the repositories,
and there’s a bug in that pre-release version of GhostScript. *We
have tested and found that the problem does not occur with the release version
of GhostScript version 8.61 available at http://pages.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/doc/GPL/gpl861.htm.


*


What we would therefore request is to update the Ubuntu 7.10
repositories to include this release version instead of the pre-release
version.


*


I don’t know if this is the correct forum for this topic.
*Please let me know if I need to contact someone else who looks at the
package uploading for Ubuntu.

Thanks,

Hi,

this is the support mailing list for users and you are unlikely to reach
the developers here.

If this update is deemed important enough by the distro maintainers,
there is the possibility to make it available through the "update"
repository. The best way to start a discussion about this is probably by
filing a bug on the ghostscript package [1] or adding to an existing bug
if it exists [2].

If you'd like to discuss with the developers first, try IRC [3] or the
developers mailing list [4], which lists "point of contact for upstream
developers to reach Ubuntu developers" as one of its purposes.

If an update through the "update" repository is impossible, a "backport"
might be another option [5]

[1] https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/+filebug
[2] https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/+bugs?field.searchtext=ghostscript
[3] #ubuntu-devel on irc.freenode.net, see
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InternetRelayChat#head-729211ea4fb3c5b535d3d8a533dbc007c8dbce14
[4] https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-devel
[5] https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuBackports

Props to Adobe for caring,
Mario

Generally a bug report on Launchpad is the best way to do this.

Need to update GhostScript package in the Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy) Repository
 
Hi,

I have discussed this problem with the upstream developers of
Ghostscript at Artifex and the problem is NOT fixed by the official 8.61
release of Ghostscript. It appeared as fixed as the problem occurs only
with Ghostscript built as dynamic library (the case for Gutsy) and not
for a static build (the case for a standard "./configure; make; sudo
make install" as users did with the official Ghostscript (which is not
available as Gutsy package).

The Artifex developers are working on a solution and I hope that I can
soon post it as a Stable Release Update for Gutsy.
