Can't open pdf files on Kubuntu 20.04

Post by Iangh »

I can't open pdf files on Kubuntu 20.04 using XnView MP Linux Version 0.97.1 64bits. Error pops-up, "File can't be loaded!". The image shows the Ghostscript packages I have installed. Image files open OK.

if you start xnview from terminal, what do you see when you try to load a pdf?

Hi,
Staring a pdf from console gives me a white full-screen for pdf's. Images open fine in full-screen with white background.

Start of console output is:

Current allocation mode is global
Current file position is 1899
GPL Ghostscript 9.09: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1
my_error_exit...<Not a JPEG file: starts with 0x25 0x50>
GFF :: LoadThumbnail : 0 0 (2)
ThumbLoaderThread - ADD into DB (1049)

Thanks,
Ian

Thanks for getting back. I already have 9.5 installed and like to stay current with what's in Kubuntu's Discover. Hopefully XNview will start working when GS updates.
