Maybe, AN is now putting the emphasis on business customers, then they do not have the need for a working browser.
As a "business user" I can confirm that we definitely need a working browser.

Do you happen to know which file(s) I need to modify?
I've been looking through a lot of files in my  ghostscript folder but I have not found any that has entries like  8#345 etc.

Thank you, Thomas.

That code adds correct text to the pdf's.
By the way, I opened the font file at a couple of online "font editors", but could not find a way to make any adjustments for octal values.

What version of GS are you using on Linux?

Just noticed this ticket, maybe it solves the problem finding font files.
(I'm using gs9.15, installed from zip-file.)

Thanks, when using \361 and \371 I get the correct characters.
Found a table with octal codes for "Standard+" and it shows \375 for "Å" and \376 for "å", unfortunately GS produces blank spaces with these codes.
Any suggestions for an application that can be used for "opening" the font file to see how it's coded and possibly reencode it?

According to they should come from NimbusSanL-Bold.

Did some more tests with a new pdf, but still the same problem.

The files I'm using are attached.

source.pdf - had to rename it to source.txt since *.ps is cannot be uploaded

Using following command:
gsos2 -dBATCH -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOutputFile=result.pdf -f source.pdf

I'm using gsos2 to add text to pdf-files and it has worked fine until I had to insert some special Norwegian characters.
Instead of inserting the characters æ, ø and å it creates blank spaces. (The ps-file that gsos2 uses for adding the text
shows the special characters correctly.)
The third line in the attached test.pdf is added by gsos2, should be identical to the first word in line 1 but three special
characters are missing.

Ideas anyone?

Last page is printed OK here with GSView.

Not a solution but sometimes when a pdf-file is not printed correctly I use GSView to convert the file with pdfwrite and the newly produced pdf prints fine.

Turns out that I've been using my ISP's mailserver for outgoing mail and they don't add DKIM to the mails.
My web hosting provider adds all needed automatically to the emails so I'm using their mailserver from now on.

Sean Casey, many thanks for teaching me a lot about email settings/security.

Applications / DMARC error
« on: August 17, 2022, 01:26:17 pm »

I'm sending a lot of e-mails with Seamonkey 2.35 and it woks fine.
However, I've now been informed by one recipient (a company) that the e-mail I sent them has a "DMARC-error".

Got the following info from them;
Error info: Sender Policy Framework (SPF) error.

DMARC error. This error means that the message failed authentication tests and is not DMARC Compliant.
A DMARC Compliance failure means that both SPF & DKIM verification tests failed.

Anyone who knows aything about this?

Is it just me,  or are others  starting to doubt there will ever be a new OS/2 Browser?

I have my doubts too, and the lack of information/transparency is disappointing.

They do, just made another donation using credit card.

Well, I'm in all four groups, plus:
Group 5: people who use gs for merging pdf's and adding text to pdf's
