Bug Description

Inkscape version 0.92 on Linux Mint 19.2 Cinnamon
The Pictures is fine. I tried do load the image via right click and select:
Open with Inkscape and gave me the error:
Failed to load the requested file /media/
There's NO problem to open the file with GIMP.

If I open Inkscape and try to load the image i get the same error.
I will test to see if works on Ubuntu 18.04, Ubuntu 19.10, Fedora 31, Debian 10, openSUSE Leap 15.1.

This issue sounds like either or (if so, reencoding the file, i.e. by saving it in GIMP, should fix the issue).

Thanks for reporting :)
