evince pdf viewing

RKoenker
It was pointed out to me that scatter plots made on our rhel5 system  
(sessionInfo() below, have the curious
feature that when made with pdf() and viewed with evince show the  
points as "q" not "o".  Is this a known
problem with evince?  It is pretty clearly not a problem with R, since  
if I bring the pdf file back to my mac
and open in acrobat it looks normal.  So this is a just-in-case-
someone-else-runs-into-this kind of post.

Yes, it is known: it is described with workarounds (thanks to Marc
Schwarz, AFAIR) on the ?pdf help page.

Re: evince pdf viewing

Marc Schwartz-3
In the interest of full disclosure, I did not provide that particular  
workaround.

It came via a thread on r-help back in January:

   https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/r-help/2009-January/185742.html

and was then moved to r-devel:

   https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/r-devel/2009-January/051891.html

The workaround was posted by Martin in the r-devel part of the thread,  
which in turn was retrieved from the bug report here:

   http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=18002

See comments #8 and #10 in the above.


Thanks!

Marc Schwartz
