Description Syam 2011-11-28 14:08:21 UTC
Version:           0.13.2 (using KDE 4.7.3) 
OS:                Linux

Pressing the space bar does not scroll down (i.e. does not work like Page-Down). This used to work in previous versions and is documented in the Okular handbook. Pressing Backspace works and is equivalent to Page-Up.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Open a multi-page document and press space bar.

Actual Results:  
Nothing happens. The document does not scroll down.

Expected Results:  
Hitting the space bar should have same results as pressing Page-Down key.

I'm using version 0.13.3 on Fedora 16.

Interesting. I'm on Fedora 16, fully updated from stable repos.

okular --version
Qt: 4.8.0
KDE Development Platform: 4.7.3 (4.7.3)
Okular: 0.13.3

Anyway, I've sent a mail to Fedora KDE SIG mailing list to see if anyone else can reproduce this. Should get some replies soon. I will update the report then.

Qt: 4.8.0 <---- Really? This has not been released yet.

You are such a geek :-P
Comment 6 Syam 2012-01-29 07:10:20 UTC
When I reported this bug, I was on nVidia proprietary driver. This was causing crashes with several KDE applications. I finally switched back to nouveau and now scrolling works fine by pressing 'Space'.
