Inkscape shutting down when trying to access certain file formats

Asked by joan brattlof on 2010-04-26

When I open Inkscape to files using Jpeg formats the entire program shuts down saying it has encountered a problem. I am choosing the "all files" catagory at the side of the screen. It does not happen when I choose inkscape files.

Hi Joan,

Really looks like bug #271401 (inkscape crashes on import of corrupted PNG), which will be fixed in Inkscape 0.48.
Would you be willing to try the development version ( and confirm that your issue is also fixed? You just need to uncompress the 7zip file and run it directly from the uncompressed folder.


Can you help with this problem?
