Description of problem: This might be the same as 1284163 but the symptoms are different so I decided to open a different issue. The main problem is the same: I can't open a pdf with impressive. This time, I created the pdf with inkscape and instead of telling me the pdf has no pages, impressive crashes with a python exception.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.10.4
How reproducible: reproducible
Steps to Reproduce:
1. save attached pdf somewhere
2. run `impressive path/to/drawing.pdf`
Actual results: impressive crashes with a python exception:
> Impressive version: 0.10.4
> Python version: 2.7.10 (default, Sep 8 2015, 17:20:17)

Expected results: impressive should display my pdf on the screen
Additional info: I'm not sure it matters but before the crash, the screen becomes black for like a second.
impressive-0.11.1-1.fc23 has been submitted as an update to Fedora 23. https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2015-ddafac2837
Screen blanking is the usual behaviour of impressive, by the way. It blanks the screen before parsing and caching the pdf.
