qpdfview hangs on some files

Maybe it's related to https://lists.debian.org/debian-securit ... 00001.html
Maybe not. But my qpdfview hangs on some pdf files made by libreoffice from single paged test .doc file. (attached)

(!) Thing is that very file can be opened on amd cpu desktop. But hangs on intel cpu desktop.
Both run on same kernel and same nvidia 375 pack driver.

I tried to open that file in Manjaro's qpdfview - which is of 0.4.17 version (see attch.). And it does open it.

Managed to make screen of the issue
Killing app leaves only this

Code: Select all

The X11 connection broke (error 1). Did the X11 server die?

Similar problem but does not hang but displays some pdf's with only lines. Have checked with evince and works perfectly.
PDF in previous post opens perfectly with qpdfview.

If you check the properties of the libre_export_version.pdf, you will find that the name of the author is in Cyrillic script.
Have seen pdf files hang when titles are in unsupported alphabets. This could be similar.

Another export test. This time I use desktopeditors (aka onlyoffice) to make pdf file.
Now it has no Cyrillic author in properties btw. And result has 1.7 pdf version.
qpdfview won't open it again.

Code: Select all

qpdfview opens both versions here with no problem. The desktopeditors version has the table on the right, while the .doc & libreoffice versions have the table on the left.

That is right. This is how my desktopeditors opens a .doc file. Just another riddle.

What cpu do you have? Amd ?
Since I have issue with intel desktop. Amd cpu desktop opens here too.
Thank you.

Maybe a dependency got borked? How about reinstalling qpdfview?
