Thread: After Upgrade to 15.1 okular displays postscript as text unless you import it as pdf

    Default After Upgrade to 15.1 okular displays postscript as text unless you import it as pdf

    Very strange, I upgraded my TeX machine from openSUSE-15.0 to openSUSE-15.1 and now okular displays my postscript files as text files unless I manually tell it to import the file as pdf. I could not find a setting for making this happen automatically, does anyone know how to get the old behavior back? (automatically interpreting the postscript when a postscript file is loaded).

    Found out what happened in the changelog:

    * Thu Jan 31 2019 Luca Beltrame <lbeltrame@kde.org>
    - Split Postscript display functionality in a separate subpackage
    (bsc#1117336, boo#1122797)
    - List files for plugins, generators, and appstream metadata
    in spec explicitly instead of wildcards

    After installing "okular-spectre" okular automatically interprets postscript files.

    This should probably be done automatically, but I'm happy again.

    Unfortunately, with Leap 15.1 and Okular version 1.6.3, the print preview for PDF files also doesn't work, unless the “okular-spectre” package is installed …

    • Curiously, if you open an OpenOffice/LibreOffice Writer (.odt) file with Okular, the Print Preview works, with or without the “okular-spectre” package !!!
