#9 Save Dialog Crashes

pyPdf (7)

On all but the simplest of PDFs, the Save dialog crashes when I click the save button. Neither the Save nor the Cancel button works. Here is the console output:

$ pdfshuffler
/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/pyPdf/pdf.py:52: DeprecationWarning: the sets module is deprecated

File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/pyPdf/pdf.py", line 607, in read
raise utils.PdfReadError, "EOF marker not found"
pyPdf.utils.PdfReadError: EOF marker not found

I had this problem with version 0.4.2-1 from the Ubuntu repository as well as version 0.5 that I downloaded from this site. I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 x64.

This is a great program, but I can't find a way around this bug.

    Actually, it appears that the problem may have been to do with one PDF file in particular. After it occurrs once, it is necessary to restart the app.

    This is actually a problem with python-pyPdf. Hopefully there will be someone to take over the maintenance of pyPdf.
