Summary: Text inside lstlisting in generated PDF have extra spaces 
Category: None
Group: None
Resolution: None

Initial Comment:

  In our documents we use lstlisting and PDF, generated with pdflatex, contains extra spaces between characters, so it makes PDF unuseful for copy-paste.

Attached files produce following text when copied from PDF:
a sdf l i s t i n g /home/ t e s t / t e s t 2
l i n e 2 \\ t e s t \bbb\ t e s t 2

Sample from other document:
"1. exported resources configured"
when copied to clipboard produce some missed characters:
"1. exported resources con

  Please help to solve these issues.
  Can it be solved with my local settings?
