XPDF Segmentation fault (core dumped) SOLVED

I have a friend with a Linux Mint based on Ubuntu 13.04 that has to use a Java program (jnlp); this program has some print features that doesn't open a print dialog but fires XPDF directly. That's very annoying, because there is no possibility afaik to change the default pdf program inside the application. I suppose that the command is hard coded in the application itself. The problem is that XPDF opens and shuts down immediately and no pdf is shown. Launching XPDF from a terminal window the following errors are thrown: $ xpdf main.pdf ***** MediaBox = ll:0,0 ur:595.276,841.89 ***** CropBox = ll:0,0 ur:595.276,841.89 ***** Rotate = 0 Segmentation fault (core dumped) After a lot of trials without any success I found the solution to fix that: sudo apt-get install libfreetype6-dev libmotif-dev wget tar xzpf xpdf-3.03.tar.gz cd xpdf-3.03 ./configure --with-freetype2-library=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu / --with-freetype2-include
