Bug Description

There is definitely a problem with Nautilus and only with Nautilus. No need to make jasper shoulder the GNOME responsibility.

On Ubuntu Trusty 14.04 LTS I have installed both Marlin and Nautilus / Nemo File Managers.

Marlin has no problem previewing JPEG 2000 thumbnails in .j2k and .jp2 format. [I mean opening a folder with dozens of .j2k and .jp2 images].

However Nautilus [3.10] / Nemo (both) are constantly crashing. e.g.

nautilus crashed with SIGSEGV in jpc_qmfb_join_colgrp()

On the command line running jasper is working fine too (Cevennes2.jpg is coming right from the official website)

$ jasper --input Cevennes2.jp2 --output Cevennes2-bis.bmp --output-format bmp

When will Nautilus behave appropriately for JPEG 2000 thumnbails ? This is dating back for years ...

I have read through the same bug reported Oct. 9, 2009

Then 2 other bug reports from 2010 and 2011

Here we have Sebastien Bacher (seb128) (an Ubuntu employee) stating that the issue lies with the jasper library.

The previous test I made with the Marlin File Manager and the jasper Library proves that it's not the case.

As a further example when attaching the .jp2 sample for this bug report, Firefox did open the File Manager (Nautilus / Nemo) to select the image and it displayed the small thumbnail appropriately.
