Description arun 2007-03-26 14:02:58 UTC
Text on path seems to be misaligned while rasterising svg images. compare the 
river names in the png
India_southwest_summer_monsoon_onset_map_en.svg.png and the svg file http://

The text does not curve but is aligned in the same direction. This can be fixed 
by breaking the text to individual letters or by converting to outlines, but this 
breaks the editability of the file.

Seems to be the same in librsvg 2.22. A clearer test case and an upstream bug report would be nice.

Assigning SVG bugs to Ariel -- need a cleanup pass to see what's fixed up by a librsvg upgrade, what can be resolved with fixes to our font configuration, what can be fixed on our end, and what still needs to be pushed upstream.
Comment 3 Ariel T. Glenn 2011-09-18 09:21:19 UTC
giving SVG bugs back to the pool.
Comment 4 Yuvi Panda 2011-12-04 19:19:42 UTC
Does this bug still exist? Did an upstream librsvg upgrade fix it?
Comment 5 Brion Vibber 2011-12-04 19:47:09 UTC
Appears to have been resolved. Current rendering of the original version of the file:!India_southwest_summer_monsoon_onset_map_en.svg/1024px-India_southwest_summer_monsoon_onset_map_en.svg.png

vs rendering in-browser:!India_southwest_summer_monsoon_onset_map_en.svg

Text rendering in the png is not quite as nice as I see in Firefox or Chrome, but follows the path reasonably well.
