Description a.l.e 2018-11-07 09:37:31 UTC
Created attachment 16122 [details]
pdf file that cannot be convert

running the following comand on the attached file, leads to a segmentation fault

gs -q -dNOPAUSE -dQUIET -dPARANOIDSAFER -dBATCH -sDEVICE=pngalpha -dTextAlphaBits=4 -dGraphicsAlphaBits=4 -r300 -sOutputFile=test.png -dFirstPage=1 -dLastPage=1 -dUseArtBox mu-install-enUS-a4.pdf -c showpage

reducing the resolution avoids the crash, but i could not open the resulting png with gimp.

- scribus is using this command for embedding rasterized pdf in the final pdfs
- multiple users have reported that their pdfs are not working anymore
- a scribus developer is reporting that the command works with gs 9.23 but not with 9.24 and 9.25.
