Description Torquil Macdonald Sørensen 2008-09-22 22:58:35 UTC
Version:           0.5.9 (using 3.5.9, Debian Package 4:3.5.9.dfsg.1-6 (lenny/sid))
Compiler:          Target: x86_64-linux-gnu
OS:                Linux (x86_64) release 2.6.26-1-amd64

"Presentation mode" doesn't work. All I get is the upper left corner of the PDF, zoomed in as if it were fullscreen, but only in an area above the kpdf window. I will attach a screenshot.

NVIDIA GPU GeForce 7950 GT

Debian Unstable with X.org 

From Xorg.0.log:
X.Org X Server 1.4.2
NVIDIA GLX Module  173.14.09

Seems totally a driver bug, please try with other driver configuration or hardware.
Comment 3 Torquil Macdonald Sørensen 2008-09-27 11:17:32 UTC
It doesn't get any better when switching between the "nvidia" and "nv" drivers. I haven't seen this problem with other applications that use fullscreen, e.g. xpdf, gqview, tvtime, stellarium

I will use okular from now on, since it is available in Debian and does not have this problem.
Comment 5 Albert Astals Cid 2008-09-27 11:57:23 UTC
Since the user does not seem to care about the bug and i can't reproduce it i'm closing it.

Torquil's screenshot shows he is running an XFCE environment; the issue seems to be the way its window manager handles kpdf's presentation mode.

I don't believe this misbehavior to be localized to XFCE only, since Compiz-Fusion has the same issue.

Please see http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=215687

Oops, forgot to mention that this behavior persists in kpdf-0.5.10
