Bug Description

I open eog file.png from terminal, and this is what I get:

Gdk:ERROR:/build/buildd/gtk+3.0-3.10.8/./gdk/gdkcairo.c:193:gdk_cairo_surface_paint_pixbuf: assertion failed: (cairo_image_surface_get_format (surface) == CAIRO_FORMAT_RGB24 || cairo_image_surface_get_format (surface) == CAIRO_FORMAT_ARGB32)
Aborted (core dumped)

The image is made from a pdf file using convert:

convert -density 5000 TUM_IAS_logo.pdf TUM_IAS_logo.png

Also, nautilus also crashes when trying to make the thumbnail. So as Unity dash. Firefox 37.0.1 cannot open the PNG file.

Firefox 37.0.1 cannot display this PNG either. Changing package to imagemagick (convert is part of imagemagick).

Now, exactly with the same source pdf file, but with a different parameter to imagemagick:
              convert -density 500 TUM_IAS_logo.pdf TUM_IAS_logo.png
(500 instead of 5000) everything works fine. All the above programs can open the file.

I still think this is a bug of imagemagick, because I assume no corrupted image file should make it to a SegFault. I guess the crash of nautilus, Unity, etc. are also because they use the same engine as eog to make the thumbnail.

I believe this is an upstream bug somewhere between libpng and the AMD drivers. Masoud, are you using AMD Radeon graphics?

Do you have the pdf and the png file ? Could you attach

It is already attached. See #2 and #3.

Seems that this is a know limitation of cairo.

It can't handle images with an horizontal or vertical size greater than 32K pixels. :(

Firefox and nautilus can now display this PNG. EOG still freezes and then closes without displaying anything except the window border.
