From MrB on IRC:

>MrB:
else
{
bool gotAlpha = false;
bool pdfVer14 = (Options.Version >= PDFOptions::PDFVersion_14) || (Options.Version == PDFOptions::PDFVersion_X4);
gotAlpha = img2.getAlpha(fn, c->pixm.imgInfo.actualPageNumber, im2, true, pdfVer14, afl, img.width(), img.height());
if (!gotAlpha)
{
PDF_Error_MaskLoadFailure(fn);
return false;
}
alphaM = !im2.isEmpty();
}

>Kunda: I'll take a stab at it: so it's failing because it doesn't(?) have an alpha layer and it's trying to be exported in the wrong pdf format version?
>MrB: yeah i guess so.. but i wonder why thats a requirement. a valid svg could also just be a solid rectangle

Same here with 1.5.0.svn (19347) on openSUSE.

I confirm the issue on ubuntu.

Strange is that the preflight checker does issue a warning : "item has got some transparency" !!! (translated from french).

scribus knows it has a transparency in the preflight checker
but lands in that (!gotAlpha) part a few seconds later when creating the PDF...

I also had a crash a few seconds later the first time i tried, but cannot reproduce the crash.

jghali says he can't reproduce it on windows (not sure what win version he is using)

The non-ideal workaround was changing the SVG in to a PNG :(
The issue still remains except on windows per jghali)

I've compiled latest trunk version in an OpenSuse 13.1 VM and... I cannot reproduce the issue either...

I wonder if the use of GraphicksMagick may be involved in this issue...

Good thinking. I will figure out how to tweak the build formula to not build with GraphicksMagick and report back soon

jghali, Confirmed this is a GraphicsMagick issue. I compiled r19395 without GM support (v1.3.19) and was able to export the SVG to pdf. How do we proceed ?

Running in graphicsmagick
Test:~ blah$ gm identify /Users/blah/Downloads/image-mask-svg-issue/images/easterlillies-frame\(publicdomainvectors\).svg
gm identify: Request did not return an image.


Note: I can successfully run 'gm convert' and convert the .svg to a .pdf with no problem. Example:
Test:~ blah$ gm convert /Users/blah/Downloads/image-mask-svg-issue/images/easterlillies-frame-publicdomainvectors.svg test.pdf

I ran into the same issue with imagemagick 8:6.8.9.9-7ubuntu5.6 (Ubuntu 16.04 / KDE neon).

The same issue occurs, if I additionally install graphicsmagick 1.3.23-1build1. I am using scribus-ng 1.5.2-0ubuntu16.04.0~ppa0.

GraphicsMagick's `gm identify` fails for all SVG images used in my SLA file with "Request did not return an image.". ImageMagick's `identify` succeeds for all SVG images, telling me reasonable dimensions for them.

Please note that I chose to embed all images into the SLA.

scribus-trunk 1.5.3svn~r21826~20170315~ppa66~ubuntu16.04.1 does not show this issue.
