Hello to everyone,
I'm having an issue with the LaTeX output from the Maxima backend in Cantor. Enabling it doesn't display the expected output, but just a black rectangle with coloured pixels. It used to work at least until the beginning of last summer. Some months later, when I next used Cantor, it didn't work anymore. The same happened on my laptop; however, reinstalling the system (but keeping the home directory unchanged) fixed the issue. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling all the LaTeX related packages I could find (by the way, I'm on Gentoo) but it didn't help.
Running Cantor from a terminal, I get the following output which seems related to this issue:
I tried opening the mentioned eps file with Okular and I got this error message:
However, I can open the file correctly using gs.
Does anyone have an idea about what could be causing this issue? I tried reporting a bug in the Gentoo bug tracker but they told me to report upstream. I think this is more a problem with my system than a bug in Cantor.
Thanks in advance
