Description of problem:
For most documents gpdf takes very long to display (> 20s). Sometimes
the document isn't displayed at all, gpdf simply hangs. xpdf display
almost immediately (< 2s), and also Acrobat Reader is much faster.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Use gpdf to open a pdf of size > 1M.

gpdf-0.131-2 took about 5s to open a 15M pdf here. xpdf and ggv took
about the same. Didn't try acroread.
Comment 2 Rudi Chiarito 2004-07-21 19:19:13 EDT
I see the same problem. The initial page of a 2.4MB document of 168
pages renders in one second when loaded with xpdf, while gpdf shows a
blank window for a whole four seconds. Ggv is somewhere inbetween
(maybe with a larger and more complex file it would be clearer where
it really stands)

In case anyone wants to reproduce the problem, here is the document:


There is a bug upstream which might be related, along with a
preliminary patch in CVS:

Comment 3 Marco Pesenti Gritti 2004-10-13 09:48:32 EDT
ptIIdesign2-software.pdf is displayed very quickly with 2.8.0 (~1
sec). I think that's because part of the work (bookmarks and
thumbnails) is now done async.

If you still see the issue feel free to reopen this.
