Description Luka Renko 2009-01-21 01:38:37 UTC
OS: Ubuntu Jaunty (up-to-date)
- KDE 4.2 RC packages (okular)
- Poppler 0.10.3 (Ubuntu package 0.10.3-0ubuntu1)

When I try to open "C++ GUI Programming with Qt" book in PDF with okular from KDE 4.2, it crashes reports the following error on console:

okular(21461): Attempt to use QAction "bookmark_action_0" with KXMLGUIFactory!
Error: Illegal annotation destination
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

I have installed dependand -dbg packages and reproduced the problem in "gdb" to get proper backtrace:

Note: this PDF can be opened on Ubuntu/Intrepid with KDE 4.1 and poppler 0.8.7
Comment 1 Luka Renko 2009-01-21 01:40:45 UTC
You can get problematic PDF from:
Comment 2 Albert Astals Cid 2009-01-21 12:34:43 UTC
I can't reproduce the crash and also the gdb backtrace looks damn strange, can you please run 
valgring okular path_to_file
and attach the results here?
Comment 3 Albert Astals Cid 2009-01-21 12:35:25 UTC
The other possibility i can think of is that you ran out of memory, is that possible?
Comment 4 Luka Renko 2009-01-21 12:51:17 UTC
I have tried it now on a clean KDE desktop (just Plasma, no apps beside some tray icons) on machine with 2 GB RAM. /proc/meminfo before test showed that I have 680 MB free memory + 800 MB occupied by cache (therefore available), which I suspect should be plenty even for 53 MB PDF.

Okular crashes almost instantly - I just get a main window for 0.1 sec (sometimes seen just as flicker), so I would say memory is not the issue here.

I would also like to point out that another Ubuntu/Jaunty (KDE 4.2 rc) user confirmed the bug in #kubuntu-devel, while two other users running Ubuntu/Intrepid (one with standard KDE 4.1.x and one with KDE 4.2.60 from SVN) reported that file opens OK for them. Therefore I suspect the difference is really in version of the poppler library (0.8.7 vs 0.10.3), which is also indicated by the stack trace.

I have also looked into poppler packages in Ubuntu, and they do not include any distro specific patches that could cause this (only patch is to fix bug 5667).
Comment 5 Albert Astals Cid 2009-01-21 15:08:02 UTC
It might be a problem in Ubuntu, i got Harald Sitter to rebuild Jaunty's okular package, please try the new package when available and report if it fixes the problem for you.
Comment 6 Connor Imes 2009-01-26 14:58:43 UTC
This bug has also been filed on Launchpad at https://bugs.launchpad.net/poppler/+bug/320269
Thank you.
Comment 7 Albert Astals Cid 2009-01-26 15:13:44 UTC
Has anyone retried after the okular rebuild? Did it get fixed?
Comment 8 Greg Grossmeier 2009-01-27 10:47:08 UTC
The original reporter to the Launchpad bug (referenced above) stated that the build in Jaunty (4:4.2.0-0ubuntu1) fixes the issue.

Unless someone else can reproduce this bug with the latest build, I'm marking it as Fixed.
Comment 9 Luka Renko 2009-01-28 00:49:36 UTC
Yes, this is fixed with new KDE 4.2 packages, so I can confirm it was just rebuild issue.
