This question already has an answer here:

When i try to display a pdf file containg a easy jet flight ticket using linux debian evince 3.12.1 rending displays overlapped characters various places of ticket and on console i got many message lines like this :

Syntax Warning: font matrix not invertible<0a>

I tried to do it through the browser but this is even worse, browser complains it does not support filling of forms ( this is a french message so i translated it ) and page is fully blank.

Is there a way to fix it, what other pdf viewer can i use to get it right ?

I tried to get a acrobat reader on site but there is not more linux version ( only windows, mac & android ). Since i might not be the only one to print flight tickets with linux, i guess there is an easy solution.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

@Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 i read your possible duplicate, and none of the asnwers are satisifying. – philippe lhardy Aug 5 '14 at 14:52
Doesn't make it a different problem/question. You are having problems printing certain PDFs in Evince. So far it appears to be an compatibility problem. Either file a bug report, use an alternative reader, and/or try updating your CUPS server. If the existing answers aren't satisfying, and you'd like newer/different answers on the existing question, please consider placing a bounty on it. – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Aug 5 '14 at 14:58
You can add a bounty to the other question right now. – Kevin Panko Aug 5 '14 at 16:47
@KevinPanko, you are right, i didn't even think about that way ( bounty for a question already answered ). I expected to find it on google with "easyjet eticket + evince + Syntax Warning: font matrix not invertible". That's why this question is for me not the very same than a wider one. And now i answered my question with xpdf solution. – philippe lhardy Aug 5 '14 at 17:24

Using xpdf version 3.03 displays it correctly. Printing to file .ps then using evince to print from .ps did the trick.

xpdf 3.03 uses

Accroding to , support of PDF using the Poppler backend. Perhaps for very latest version or what ? – philippe lhardy Aug 5 '14 at 15:36
