CentOS 5 :: Evince Not Opening Postscript Files With Long Names

Feb 28, 2011

I am using CentOS 5.5 64 bit.

My work requires me to have a lot of postscript files. Hence i have elaborate names for easy identification. For example --- AP-1_Jul-Ctrl-noEqSA_bg25C_precip,U250-150_xy.ps. I am unable to open them using evince. I get a blank evince screen with loading written on it. The same file named as 1.ps opens in a jiffy. As of now evince quickly opens pdf files with long names. But i would not like to convert ps to pdf.

Even kghostview does not open these long-named files.

Ubuntu :: Opening .pdf Links With Evince?

Jan 12, 2010

Whenever I click a website link to a .pdf I get this error message, "Could not launch Adobe Reader 8.1.2. Please make sure it exists in PATH variable in the environment. If the problem persists, please reinstall the application." Even though there is no Adobe Reader installed on my p.c.

I then have to right click the link and "Save link as How do I set the PATH variable so that Evince can open the document directly without first having to save the link?

Debian :: Preserve Long File Names (>37) In Genisoimage?

Dec 2, 2010

I need to make an ISO9660 file from a directory, but some of the files have names that are logner than 37 characters. I could not find a way to get the long names preserved.
I've tried various ways but in vain. "genisoimage -J -R -U -max-iso9660-names -o tst.iso cdroot" gets most close to the end, but not close enough!

Fedora :: Fortran Programs And Long Path Names Input's

Apr 30, 2010

I have a fortran program example call like this:

This call cant run my fortran program because they output to the screen that the file ' ' (empty) cant be loaded!

So the problem is that my program cant see the file in the long path name above ( the real name is a bit more longer). I try with shorts path names , and the program can run, reading the input file.

I googleit for this type of error and only found that bash have limits on the filenames and inputs, so i change them (/usr/local/linux/limits.h or some like) to a very high value (999) ,but no success.

Software :: Convert Directory Structure From Long File Names In System To DOS 8.3?

Sep 2, 2009

I've been looking high and low for a utility program or perl script or something that can take a linux directory structure as input and convert it to MS-DOS 8.3 directory structure.

The purpose of this is to conform to the path format that is expected on my rather old Creative Zen Neeon MP3 player for m3u play lists.

Debian :: Convert Postscript Files To Pdf Format

May 5, 2010

I use Linux for my everyday work but lately I've been faced with a trouble when I send out file printouts from my browser from my Debian system to (normally) window$ systems, where they are not readable. Is there a way for me to convert the postscript files into pdf format? Most window$ users will have some sort of pdf reader installed but I am still to find one user that has Ghostscript and Ghostview installed. where can I find the TTF fonts that are shipped with every standard installation of Debian? I'm sometimes forced to print files through a windows system and because the fonts loaded in that system are not the ones I use in Debian (URW Gothic L, as an example) I end up having my official documents disfigured. If I can carry around with me a ready-to-install fonts package I can get over this obstacle.

CentOS 5 Server :: Cups & Samba -- Printing From WINXP Client As Postscript Fails?

Mar 14, 2009

Apologies if this was asked before -- I have googled the last bytes out of my Firefox but fail to find anything helpful. Here's my problem:I have a foomatic hpijs cups-driver for a HP Inkjet (Non-PS printer) installed. Printing from UNIX-hosts works. I have cups configured not to allow raw-printing (/etc/cups/mime.types: #application/octet-stream, /etc/cups/mime.convs: #application/octet-stream).I have now installed samba-printing, the cups PS-drivers plus the Windows PS-drivers are populated to /etc/samba/drivers/W32X86/ and get pushed to the WIN-Client.Problem is that when I print from a WINXP client, the printer outputs heaps of Postscript-text instead of my page.I have tried to debug this a bit but fail to find anything really useful. My observations so far:

- The samba-pushed HP_Photosmart_3300.ppd (in both /etc/samba/drivers/... and in the resulting dir on the WINXP client) reads:
*cupsFilter: "application/vnd.cups-postscript 0 foomatic-rip"

Ubuntu :: Can't Print Some PDF Files With Evince

I've been having a problem with printing a particular pdf file from Evince. The pdf is opened and displayed correctly but when I want to print all I get is sheets with only punctuation marks on them. These punctuation marks correctly correspond to what is in the document but all the text in between them is not printed.

Debian Multimedia :: Evince - Entering Data Into PDF Files?

Oct 15, 2010

Some PDF files have a functionality that text and amounts can be filled in some parts of the file, after which it can be printed (most of the times NOT saved). Our tax authorities have these files as well, you can download them, fill in text and amounts, it even counts it for you, and you can print and send.

Unfortunately, I can't use that functionality in Evince (running Squeeze). I tried this with Adobe (also in Squeeze) and it didn't work either. In Win it does work, but of course I would like Debian to be "allround" Can it be that some application must be installed to use this function?

However, no pdf, ps files can be opened by it after that.Running from the command line, get error like:"evince: symbol lookup error: evince: undefined symbol: ev_get_locale_dir"I just wonder how to solve this. Or how to rollback to older version?

Ubuntu :: Evince Is Somehow Screwing Up Font Creation When Displaying Dvi Files

Mar 26, 2011

1. Evince is somehow screwing up font creation when displaying dvi files. I can preview the dvi file fine under xdvi. When I try with evince, I kicks off a slew of metafont font-creation runs, then shows me totally garbled pages -- the layout is correct, but none of the characters are right. This happens for documents that primarily use Times Roman fonts.

2. *Every* time evince comes up, it insists on starting in continuous / "fit page width" mode. I don't want either one. I want continuous-mode*off* and the window in the "best fit" view. So I have to click, drag, click, click, drag, release *every* time I pop up a file. It's very annoying. There doesn't appear to be any key in the gnome gconf config database I can set to affect these things. How do I fix this?...

CentOS 5 :: X/Gnome Takes Long Time To Load And Sudo Takes Long Time To Execute

Oct 13, 2009

I am running Centos 5.3. I ran no updates, performed no installs, nor changed any configuration immediately prior to this issue. My problem is this: when I run the command startx (default runlevel 3), it is a long time (5-10 minutes) before Gnome startx, and once it does start applications will not run. Also, when I try to use sudo (from any environment, even ssh), it is a long time (5-10) before the command is executed.

I cannot say for sure, but it seems like this is an intermittent problem. Sometimes X takes a long time to start, but once it starts it will launch programs. Sometimes X takes a long time to launch, but once it starts it will only launch certain programs. Though presently X always takes a long time to start, and I cannot successfully launch any programs.

A while back a had a similar problem to this (x taking long time to start, sudo taking long time to execute) and it ended up being a DNS problem. Unfortunately, I cannot remember exactly what it was and I stupidly did not document it. Maybe this is also DNS related, I don't know.

I don't know what log files to look at for problems with X, Gnome, and sudo taking a long time to start.

CentOS 5 :: Debian Netinstall Long Done, CentOS 5 Still Trying To Retrieve Stage2.img?

Apr 2, 2009

I am trying to install 5.3 using net install disc, where it hangs for over 30 minutes trying to retrieve stage2.img. Second time. After first time and waiting over 25 minutes, I tried Debian net install on another box, and it's done with installation long ago, while this one is still hanging (and from the looks of it I doubt it will continue).

1. Network is good, the box pings, network parameters are good, Debian worked flawlessly with same parameters

2. It did pull all it needed before stage2.img

3. Plenty of RAM in the box, over 3 GB

4. The box needs no additional drivers (except newer version of kernel as vanilla still doesn't have a complete support for Intel DP43TF board), distro has them all

Ubuntu :: Inexplicably Long Pauses When Moving Files?

Mar 31, 2011

I'm wondering what might be causing some VERY long delays when I move groups of files from one directory to another on the same drive. In the GUI, I simply multi(shift)select a few dozen items at once (a set of JPEGs previously downloaded from my camera) and drag them together from the source directory window (where I downloaded all the images from the memory card) into a new/empty folder/window specific to that group of images. Just routine sorting of files basically... Once I 'let go' ('dropping' the items into their destination) there's often a SURPRISINGLY long delay before I can do something else within the GUI... open another file, or rename an item, etc... This delay can take a few seconds to more than a minute (if moving a couple hundred files at once)... this 'wait' during such a routine 'housekeeping' task seems surprising to me. During these delays, I CAN open/use other programs such as System Monitor or a browser... it just seems that additional GUI/filesystem tasks must wait out the delay before proceeding. If I go ahead and try to do another filesystem task during the delay anyway, it gets buffered... the file won't open/next files don't get moved/etc... UNTIL the delay from the first operation is complete (updated item counts resulting from file moves aren't reflected in List View until the delay is finished too).

According to System Monitor (see image attachment for screen cap during one of these delays...) one CPU is pegged (the "gvfsd-metadata" process, which I guess corresponds to the file/move) and the other 3 cores are relatively idle, and there's plenty of free RAM/no swap. I'd have thought such a delay wouldn't be an issue with Ubuntu/my PC... maybe I have something set up incorrectly? Other clues: intermittently, during these delays/file operations, the GUI shuts down all open windows (folders)... as if the delays/buffered tasks caused some sort of reset. The hard drive is internal SATA formatted regular Ext4 and the Ubuntu on my PC is the 32-bit version since I figured my Dell is too old (about 4-5 years) to justify the 64-bit version. Like most folks, there are LOTS of files/folders on my drives, but I only have 3 file windows open at once most of the time, and am only displaying the item names and 'sizes'... no other columns. Nothing other than the 'move' itself is running at the time which could help explain the delay.

CentOS 5 Server :: DNS Does Not Resolve Names Except To Localhost

Feb 9, 2010

We installed CentOS 5 at our school and are attempting to get 2 simple DNS servers online. These are simple name resolution servers for our network. We installed the needed caching nameserver packages via Yum and all seems to be well, but for some reason when the server is online, it fails to resolve DNS records except when we direct the requests to its (localhost) interface. As for the server specs, the DNS server is running on a Virtual Machine, and the ESXi server has 2 quad-core Xeon CPU's with 48 Gigs of RAM (in short.. hardware is adequate.)

Here's more details:
When the box boots up, we can confirm that the named service is running and it resolves DNS records when we direct queries to its localhost address:
[root@ns1 ~]# dig hotbot.com @localhost
; <<>> DiG 9.3.6-P1-RedHat-9.3.6-4.P1.el5_4.2 <<>> hotbot.com @localhost
;; global options: printcmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 55510
;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 4, ADDITIONAL: 0 .....
; <<>> DiG 9.3.6-P1-RedHat-9.3.6-4.P1.el5_4.2 <<>> hotbot.com @
;; global options: printcmd
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

What would cause the Named service to not answer DNS queries from the physical IP but only from it's internal IP?

CentOS 5 :: Best Way Of Specifying Names Of Ethernet Devices In CentOS5.5 Or Later?

What is the best way of specifying the names of ethernet devices in CentOS5.5 or later? There seems to be at least two ways of doing this: Would the 60_net.rule file override a 010_netinterfaces.rules file because it gets executed later, or would the 010_ net interfaces. rule file set up the info in /sys which would then be used by 60_net.rule?
