Description Daniel Moerner 2020-07-27 15:38:36 UTC
Description of problem:

After the recent upgrade of jbig2dec-libs to 0.18-1, Zathura's mupdf plugin will not open certain pdfs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): zathura-pdf-mupdf-0.3.5-3.fc32.x86_64, jbig2dec-libs-0.18-1.fc32.x86_64

How reproducible: 100%, with the right pdf. I don't have any freely available pdfs to link to, but if you have academic access to JSTOR or Wiley-Blackwell, pdfs from the Proceedings of the Aristotelian Society fail, e.g.,

Steps to Reproduce: Try to open certain pdfs.

Actual results: Visible pdf.

Expected results: Black screen in Zathura, and the following error message: 

warning: jbig2dec error: incompatible jbig2dec header (0.17) and library (0.18) versions (segment -1)
error: cannot allocate jbig2 context
warning: Ignoring error during interpretation

Additional info: Arch bug report:

Solution: I believe that zathura-pdf-mupdf just needs to be rebuilt.

Comment 1 Daniel Moerner 2020-07-27 20:13:20 UTC
I wasn't thinking clearly about this. mupdf needs to be rebuilt first, and then zathura-pdf-mupdf can be rebuilt against the new build of mupdf. I just confirmed that this works locally, I'll file another bug report against mupdf which this will depend on.
