Description hiroto.kagotani 2011-11-22 15:50:01 UTC
poppler has changed its API for getting PDF properties since 0.15.1
after the release of evince-2.32.0.

From ChangeLog of poppler:
> commit d4a6c17255821925906c17b79b88eebed9edfee1
> Author: Carlos Garcia Campos <carlosgc@gnome.org>
> Date:   Fri Sep 17 13:04:33 2010 +0200
>     [glib] Add accessor for all PopplerDocument properties
>     PopplerDocument:linearized is now a boolean value rather than string,
>     so this commit breaks the API again.

This change causes evince segfault when showing properties of
some PDF files.  To avoid this, evince must handle ``linearized''
property as boolean.

Added file(s):
- files/patch-backend__pdf__ev-poppler.cc

Port maintainer (gnome@FreeBSD.org) is cc'd.

Generated with FreeBSD Port Tools 0.99

Fix: This fix is borrowed from 
Since poppler in FreeBSD is now 0.18.0, #ifdef's are not required.

This fix should be removed when evince is updated to 3.x.
How-To-Repeat: Download a PDF file from
and open it with evince.
Choose Properties from File menu.
