Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1296119
okular takes long time to start with file on command line
Last modified: 2016-12-20 12:38:50 EST
Description of problem:
Okular takes a long time (sometimes in the range of several minutes) before it becomes visible - when started with a file on the command line, like:
If starting Okular and then selecting a file via the menu, there is no delay.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Okular Version 0.22.2
Using KDE Development Platform 4.14.14
Start okular on a PDF file given on the command line. If the delay does not occur, restart the machine first. On some occasions, the problem seemed to be magically fixed, but it came back after a reboot.
Steps to Reproduce:
2. Open Terminal.
3. okular file.pdf
Okular will show after a couple of minutes.
There is no debug output visible during that time, no messages at all.
Okular should show after a few seconds.
- This is on the standard version of Fedora, i.e., Gnome and not the KDE spin.
- I tested other KDE applications, including Kate, and they start fine.
- Hardware is a Dell Latitude E6220, in case that matters.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
