Subject: Problem with exported PDFs in acroread
Date: Sun, 15 Jul 2012 12:09:43 +0200
Package: inkscape
Severity: normal

Unfortunately, this is somewhat involved to reproduce.

open inkscape, draw anything in fig1.svg and fig2.svg (I attach two

inkscape fig1.svg --export-pdf=fig1.pdf --export-area-drawing

inkscape fig2.svg --export-pdf=fig2.pdf --export-area-drawing

cat > figs.tex << EOF

pdflatex figs.tex

acroread figs.pdf

gives "There was an error opening this document. The file is damaged
and could not ne repaired."

There is no error with PDFs not produced by inkscape.

Unfortunately, evince or xpdf do not show an error, so it might be
hard to track this down.
