Thread: okular crashes opening some pdfs

    Smile okular crashes opening some pdfs

    Like [Okular-devel]bug report okular started to crash when opening some pdf files after upgrade to kde 4.3.4

    I found out that the probelm was not actually in kde but another update - at some point poppler (libpoppler4, libpoppler-qt4-3 and others) was updated to 0.10.1-1.7.1 but okular did not work fine with it any more. I solved the problem by downgrading poppler back to 0.10.1-1.4 (repo-oss) and all pdfs worked fine again.

    Hope the experience can be useful for someone else too.

    The bug report above states that newer okular would need actually newer poppler (0.12.x) but it is not provided at least for opensuse 11.1 yet.

    OpenSuse 11.1 64 bit
    kernel 2.6.27.39-0.2-default
    kde 4.3.4

    I can confirm the libpoopler crashes with xpdf.

    [ 66.980879] xpdf[3880]: segfault at 8 ip 00007f78ba8b72a0 sp 00007fff2cfb2f18 error 4 in libpoppler.so.5.0.0[7f78ba759000+1e9000]

    This happens on
    Linux hertz 2.6.31.8-0.1-default #1 SMP 2009-12-15 23:55:40 +0100 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    A self compiled xpdf ( not using libpoppler) works.

    Folks - I see today that an update to libpoppler5 (0.12.0-3.7.1) is pending for my KDE 4.3.1 system. Do you think this problem will be introduced when I update, or are we talking completely different things here?
    I use PDFs heavily for work, so I would be up the creek without Okular...

    If you are still having problems, install KPDF until the problems in Okular are sorted out; look for kdegraphics in the KDE3 repository.

    Many thanks tarmoj, I reverted the set of updates to the 'libpoppler*' files as you suggested and Okular now works fine again, you saved me a lot of time, once again many thanks
