Description Ali Akcaagac 2005-09-11 17:44:26 UTC
I just wanted to print out an *.gif file with Heian Shodan Kata images printed
on it. Which I got from this page:

The printout resulted in an entirely black page. Which for my money bag was
probably the most expensive printout ever done. I don't really know whether this
is a GThumb issue or a libgnomeprint/ui issue since the preview was quite ok but
the printout was not.

When trying to reproduce this one, i got bug 316018.
Comment 2 Paolo Bacchilega 2005-09-11 20:14:19 UTC
if the preview looks correct, it's a libgnomeprint bug.
Comment 3 Frank Niedermann 2005-10-29 13:30:58 UTC
I can confirm this bug for gThumb. I tried to print two different images
(screenshots) and all I got was a black page out ouf the printer.

The preview page looks okay.

I can print the images with eog which uses libgnomeprint (at least I think so).
But with eog I have another issue:

I'm running Ubuntu Breezy final.

There seem to be other users with this issue too:
Comment 4 Frank Niedermann 2005-10-29 13:33:26 UTC
gThumb is version 2.6.5 on Gnome desktop 2.12.1

Forgot that in the first comment.

Would like to confirm this bug but I'm unable to do ;)
Comment 5 Ali Akcaagac 2005-11-06 00:25:29 UTC
Indeed, it would be pretty nice to see some progress in this area now that more
people confirmed this issue. Maybe it should be changed to critical or something.
Comment 6 Christian Neumair 2006-04-03 11:11:46 UTC
GTK+ 2.8 and gthumb/evince 2.14 don't open the GIF, they report "GIF file was missing some data (perhaps it was truncated somehow?)".
Comment 7 Sasa Ostrouska 2006-11-28 12:22:17 UTC
I also have problems printing some kind of images from gThumb resulting in a
black full square. Also from evolution is happening this.

Comment 8 Kjartan Maraas 2008-02-02 19:33:20 UTC
I commited a patch from bug 513699 that should fix this.
Comment 9 Michael Chudobiak 2008-04-11 12:35:37 UTC
gThumb now uses gtk-print rather than gnome-print, and it looks like gnome-print is fixed now, so this bug is both fixed and obsolete.
