We upgraded pdftoppm from 3.0 to 3.02 and that fixed the problem.

Thanks

Just a follow up on my previous email, I ran the pdftoppm manually using this command and got the error below:

pdftoppm -q -f 1 -l 1 -r 62 DevelopmentBulletin-73_2009.pdf bleg2
Bogus memory allocation size

Has anyone seen this error?

Thanks

Hi all,

We are running dspace 1.8.2/Linux and having some issues with the pdftoppm tool when extracting some PDF's thumbnail. 

Some properties of the PDF's:

- Encoding software includes: Adobe PDF Library, Acrobat Distiller,  Acrobat PDFWriter.
- Size: varies from 1 to 10 MB.

In the logs (in debug mode) throws this after executing filter-media:

Updating search index:

Strangely, even when running the pdftoppm tool  manually I get  "Bogus memory allocation size"  error.  My JAVA_OPTS is set to "-Xmx1024M -Xms128M -XX:PermSize=192M -XX:MaxPermSize=384M"

Also someone on the mailing list  suggested a solution to change a line in XPDF2Thumbnail.java near the line reporting the error . The line was

File outf = new File(outPrefix+"-000001.ppm");
and change to 
File outf = new File(outPrefix+"-001.ppm");

Unfortunately, this has not worked for me. Any help would be appreciated?

Thanks
