Looking at issue fdo#62051
<https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=62051> , why no versions of
LibreOffice seem to handle insertion of EPS.
Looking in OpenGrok at ieps.cxx
Linux seems to use the GhostScript -- gs command that is commonly bundled.
But Windows seems to require use of ImageMgaick convert command. That is
not normally a program a Windows user would install!
So, I installed an ImageMagick binary (32-bit static
http://www.imagemagick.org/script/binary-releases.php and all versions of
LibreOffice through 4.1.x now render a viable image of the EPS.
Can find nothing noting a requirement for ImageMagick as a install
dependency, should ImageMagick be bundled if EPS rendering is depending on
it? Also, for releases from 126.96.36.199 on, the insert image from EPS results
in a fully black fill for the image preview--suspect that is the move from
PNG to BMP and needs to be adjusted.
