Bug Description

Upstream URL:
https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/evince/issues/538

Binary package hint: evince

1) lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu Vivid Vervet (development branch)
Release: 15.04

2) apt-cache policy evince
evince:
  Installed: 3.14.1-0ubuntu1
  Candidate: 3.14.1-0ubuntu1
  Version table:
 *** 3.14.1-0ubuntu1 0
        500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ vivid/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

3) What is expected is when one opens the attached ps file created by PAW, it shows as it does using gv - Postscript and PDF viewer.

4) What happens instead is after the first page, the other pages look zoomed and one can not see the whole figure. First reported against Ubuntu 9.04 evince 2.26.1-0ubuntu1, and reported to be a regression.

WORKAROUND: Use gv:
 apt-cache policy gv
gv:
  Installed: 1:3.7.4-1
  Candidate: 1:3.7.4-1
  Version table:
 *** 1:3.7.4-1 0
        500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty/universe amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Dear Pedro Villavicencio,

Thank you for your quick reply and interest. Attached is the example of such
kind of ps which I create by using PAW, please find attached document.
It is reproducible, and if you use CERN analysis package program PAW and
create some ps files, it is always happened.

Thank you for your help,
Best regards,
Dr. Muhammed Deniz.
