Problems in displaying postscript labels layer
|Reported by:||clerici||Owned by:||marisn|
Clicking in the GIS Manager the name of a file containing labels to be displayed in postscript, an error message is displayed (see error1.png). After closing the error window, the attempt of displaying labels in the Map Display gives another error (see error2.png) and the Map Display is frozen (with grass-6.4.svn_src_snapshot_2009_11_07 and tcl/tk GUI).
As an example, I created the file archlabel containing the labels from vector archsites (str1 column) through Vector > Develop Map > Create labels (see v.label.png).
Into the GIS Manager I used the 'Add poscript labels layer' button to load the file archlabel (see GISManager.png). At this point the labels can be correctly displayed, but if the name archlabel in the GIS Manager is clicked, the above mentioned error messages are emitted.
Some other less important problems seem to affect the setting panel, as for example the y offset (negative upward in the panel, and positive in v.label) or the Background color option that seems to work randomly.
