The link in the original submission is dead, but the attachment at the KDE bug report works fine with Okular in Parkes.

It looks like an Okular bug. Starting it and opening a local copy of the linked file crashes Okular in metad i386. This is possibly KDE bug #168678 - https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=168678 Backtrace and other gdb output are attached.

1) Go to URL above

2 Answer "Open with 'Okular'" to the dialog given:

Open 'http://sv.openoffi...ättning 100118.odt'?
Type: OASIS OpenDocument Text

3) Watch it crash

A Fatal Error Occurred
The application Okular (okular) crashed and caused the signal 6 (SIGABRT).
Please help us improve the software you use by filing a report at http://bugs.kde.org. Useful details include how to reproduce the error, documents that were loaded, etc.

4) Generate second error by choosing 'Show Details'

Could not generate a backtrace as the debugger 'gdb' was not found.

Expected result: opening any file of the MIME Types matching


should open correctly in Okular or another viewer capable of at least rendering ODF. Perhaps it is incorrect default settings in Konqueror that send the file to Okular.
