Description Robinson Tryon (qubit) 2013-10-20 21:29:54 UTC
Testing  on Ubuntu 12.04.3 + LO

1) Try to open PDF of slides from the LibreOffice 2013 conference (see bug 70704)

Get error "This PDF file is encrypted and can't be opened."

File should open without a password.

I filed Bug 70704 - "Password required on document that opens without using Acrobat" against poppler.
Comment 1 Arnaud Versini 2013-10-20 21:45:56 UTC
Confirmed on LibreOffice PDF doesn't work on Evince, but works on Acrobat for Android.
Comment 2 tommy27 2014-11-02 09:45:03 UTC
please retest with LibO and give feedback about the bug status
Comment 3 Arnaud Versini 2014-11-02 10:01:29 UTC
Still on 4.3.2, and Poppler bug report still opened.
Comment 4 Robinson Tryon (qubit) 2015-01-25 11:02:32 UTC
Now that LO and Poppler are on separate Bugzilla installs, re-linking these two bugs together.

Works perfectly with LibreOffice and poppler 0.57.
Comment 9 Aron Budea 2017-09-07 09:34:32 UTC
Thanks for testing. Let's use WORKSFORME, since the change fixing the issue is not known.
