Description Vladimir 2009-12-08 09:32:27 UTC
okular-4.3.4 doesn't open PDF files although all dependencies are satisfied and "revdep-rebuild" remains silent.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update to KDE-4.3.4 from the older version (4.3.3 in my case).
2. Try to open some PDF file with Okular.

Actual Results:  
Okular gives an error message telling something about Okular cannot find the appropriate module to read the file.

Expected Results:  
Okular should open PDF file.

Re-emerge virtual/poppler and dev-libs/poppler with the lcms USE flag, then re-emerge okular.

Done. Helped. Works. Thanks.

I mean - thank you very very much! :)
I'm not sure about the "lcms" use flag role, and also I do not understand why didn't okular told me that he needs this use flag enabled to work properly, but it does the job now and I'm happy. :)
Comment 3 Bartek 'Paczesiowa' Cwiklowski 2009-12-12 17:43:01 UTC
that's not a proper solution and the problem still exists, because there is obviously something wrong with okular pdf deps:

        pdf? (
                || (

that alternative is wrong: =virtual/poppler-0.12.1[-lcms] satisfies that requirement, but it doesn't work.

so please reopen this bug.

  Yes, probably, you are right. I've made a hasty decision closing this bug as "Resolved" since it actually isn't.
  I was so happy that I haven't even noticed my own note about the incorrect dependency in my previous post. :)
  So, reopening.

The dependency is fixed as of kde-base/okular-4.3.5. Works fine here.
