Password falsely required to read document
SUMMARY I have a PDF where a password is used to protect against editing. But the password is not needed for display only. This file cannot be opened in okular - which uses poppler - on my system.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
- Open https://www.bgfg.de/fileadmin/bgfg/Geschaeftsberichte/Geschaeftsbericht_2018_BGFG_Jahrbuchteil_END-Doppelseiten-WEB.pdf in okular
- Click "cancel" when asked for password
Error is shown that the file cannot be opened
The file should be displayed and there should be no password prompt.
- OS: openSUSE Leap 15.1
- okular: 1.6.3
- KDE Plasma Version: 5.12.8
- KDE Frameworks Version: 5.55.0
- Qt Version: 5.9.7
Opening the file with Master PDF Editor on the same machine or with Adobe Reader on another PC does not prompt for a password and displays the file just fine.
