using a different pdf font rendering engine

    It's not a problem with Xournal itself but with the font rendering "engine".
    I have a pdf-file containing formulas. When opening with Acrobat Reader or Foxit (both Ubuntu) it displays the formulas correctly. Maybe they use their own font rendering engines (?).  Gnome pdf-viewer Evince produces the same result as Xournal. Is there a solution to this. I'd appreciate any help very much because with all the formulas (equations) being wrong I cannot use my beloved Xournal.

    Ok, seems to be a problem with poppler.
    Running on my Ubuntu Lucid system, poppler (0.12.4) is used and produces the character interpretation errors,
    whereas Debian Wheezy uses poppler (0.16.7). The latter works fine (without the character problem).

    No, nothing wrong with either version of poppler. I restored my Lucid system to the state BEFORE I installed Wine. Now there's no problem. Maybe it was some kind of a font problem. I really don't know.
