3) What is expected to happen using the libreoffice-pdfimport via the Terminal:

cd ~/Desktop && wget https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openoffice.org/+bug/310057/+attachment/2130070/+files/ah_41813a_j11_a_01564.pdf && unoconv --listener && unoconv -f otg ah_41813a_j11_a_01564.pdf && cp ah_41813a_j11_a_01564.otg export.otg && unoconv -f pdf export.otg && acroread ah_41813a_j11_a_01564.pdf export.pdf

is the O in the VZO logo is displayed green in both files.

4) What happens instead is the O is light blue.

This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.

Comment 6 vvort 2014-02-18 14:15:09 UTC
Light blue color of 'O' is fixed here:

But there are still some related problems
Comment 7 Commit Notification 2014-02-18 20:20:19 UTC
Vort committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":


fdo#37246 PDF Import: Color to string conversion fix

The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
information about daily builds can be found at:
Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
Comment 8 vvort 2014-02-19 05:48:21 UTC
Besides incorrect color, in imported sample document there are one more problem - extra strokes.
This problem was tracked down to this bug and it's solution:

But when I tested PDF from OO bug #109708 and with this lines commented out:
//if(area < minAreaThreshold)
//    m_pSink->strokePath(path);
, I found no problems. Maybe that hack is obsolete and can be removed?

And one more question - where this (strokes) problem needs to be discussed?
Comment 9 Samuel Mehrbrodt (allotropia) 2014-02-19 07:11:15 UTC
Hi Vort,
I would just submit a patch and explain the problem in a comment or the commit message.
The reviewer should then decide whether it's ok to merge.
