MuPDF stopped working

Hello, this is my first post in the forum, so I'm not quiet sure, if this is the right place to ask smile

As of today, all pdf viewers using `mupdf` stopped working for me with the error `undefined symbol: jbig2_ctx_new`.
I suppose this is because of a recent update of `jbig2dec`. Does anybody have information on this?

Re: MuPDF stopped working

I also have this issue. I thought there was something wrong with my tex compiler :-) I'm using zathura; using poppler as the backend with zathura-pdf-poppler works for now. I presume there is a version mismatch or something.

Re: MuPDF stopped working

You could maybe try downgrading jbig2dec if this fix is unacceptable to you for now.

I would test it with v.16-1 myself, but I get

error: failed retrieving file 'jbig2dec-0.16-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz' from archive.archlinux.org : OpenSSL SSL_connect: SSL_ERROR_SYSCALL in connection to archive.org:443

with the downgrade package.

Re: MuPDF stopped working

Thank you very much; I'm also using zathura and changed to the poppler backend for now. In this mailing list, there is also a possible fix in discussion, but I'm not nearly experienced enough to do this myself.

It's fixed in the repos now.

Re: MuPDF stopped working

Here an other "effect" of this:

My Ricoh Aficio SG3110SFNw refused printing graphics (only text works) after last updates. The following helped:

Downgrade to:

jbig2dec-0.16-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
ghostscript-9.27-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

helped so far. ATM I think this is a bug in jbig2dec ???????

Re: MuPDF stopped working

No, there is no error related to a bug anywhere in this thread.  Mupdf just needed to be rebuilt against the new jbig2dec.  The proper solution was to just update mupdf to the proper version in the repos within a couple hours of this issue first being noted.

If your issue is different, start a different thread.
