Well, I don't know what okular is.
- Would you tell me the procedure to reproduce the issue your are seeing
in detail? (including what desktop environment you are using)
- Please write the component and EVR (Epoch-version-release) of the rpms
which you think are related to this issue.
Also, your gdb backtrace does not seem to show where the crash
is occuring. Would you also try the following?
(gdb) thread apply all bt
I am using KDE
Okular is the document viewer in KDE
run pcmanfm from kde menu,
then try to open a pdf file by rightclicking on the file and selecting a viewer.
It seems there is a problem when trying to open with okular.
Still I need more detailed information.
- launch pcmanfm from KDE menu
- push right click on one pdf file in one directory, click it by right mouse
button, (perhaps) choose "Open with...", then select "okular", then
* Would you see what issue you are seeing in detail?
- What name of pdf file are you trying to open?
- When you are trying to open the pdf file with okular from pcmanfn,
is pcmanfm or okular crashing (i.e. pcmanfm or okular exit
- Or okular launches normally, pcmanfm does not crash. However okular
cannot open the selected pdf file?
In that case, do okular or pcmanfm show any messages?
- If you see some messages on a popup window, or in a text file or
so, would you tell me what exact message you are seeing?
(If a popup window appears, taking a screenshot is useful)
- Would you tell me the procedure how you got the gdb output
you posted on comment 1? (and when you got that gdb output,
was some application crashing?)

The problem is due to the way pcmanfm communicates the filenames.
The file name of the file in the picture is "a guide to latex and electronic publishing.pdf". It opens perfectly in okular from konqueror or dolphin.
But when I rename the file to 'latexguidepublishing.pdf'... it opens correctly from pcmanfm.
I checked it with .chm and .djvu files too
No application crashed. The screen shot should be self-explanatory.
(after trying to open a file unsuccessfully in okular and then successfully in document viewer)
If I close the application directly, then I get no stack
Okay. Now I can reproduce what you see.
I think I can fix this issue on pcmanfm side, however anyway
okular (in kdegraphics) does a wrong behavior, which is the
same as bug 519008. For now I want to hear first how KDE people
think of this.
Closing as it seems that this was fixed in kdebindings side.
