Cannot exit fullscreen mode

Post by oizo »

Hey There!
First of all: Great Software! I tested it under Win and now installed it on my Linux System. Both working nearly perfect but i have a litle prob with the Linux Version 1.68.1.
I can press Ctrl-F to enter Fullsreen Mode, but when i press it IN Fullscreen mode nothing happens. I can navigate the folder, but can't Exit Fullscreen. The only way is Ctrl-O which kills the program or switch to another TTY and kill it from there.
I use XnView 1.68.1 under the Download Version of Mandrake Linux 9.2 and KDE 3.1

I hope you can read my poor English.
Greetings from Germany - 'Old Europe' :wink:

I haven't got a Linux version of XnView, but have you tried the 'Esc' key to exit fullscreen mode? This is the key for the windows version and might work in the Linux version, too.

Grüß' dich Helmut! :)
I tried the 'Esc'-Key but nothing happens!
And i made a mistake in the above Posting: I press Ctrl-Q to Exit Fullscreen, not Ctrl-O! But that not only exits the Fullscreen, Ctrl-Q quits the whole Programm.
By the way: All other Keyboard Shortcuts don't Work in Fullscreen. 'Ctrl-Q' is the only one working fine.

greetings!

Same problem on Debian Sarge!

Hope for a fix soon, as the program is perfect, but without the option to exit the fullscreenmode I can't use it as a viewer :-/

Any news on that topic?
Best regards, Markus

Same Problem, hope they are going to fix it! Also using Mandrake 10!

The only way to "work around it" is to mark the pictures and do a "slideshow"
with the option use keyboard or mouse (instead of time...).
Even in fullview you can go back without quitting the program and with the two mousebuttons you can go back and forth in the line of pictures.
still this is not the best way....

Same here ... Debian Sid.

Why isn't there a fix out there or an update of 1.68.1 ?
It is SUCH A NICE tool, but without the possibility of leaving the fullscreen mode, it is unusable :-(
