Description Red Crayon 2006-08-30 02:48:07 EDT
In FC5, when you put acroread in full 
screen mode, it doesn't really go FULL
screen -- the gnome panels are still 

evince does not behave this way, but there
are still PDF files for which acroread does
a better job.

this is NOT a trivial problem for those of 
us who travel/teach with laptops and make 
full-screen PDF presentations.

pushing the panels back on an ad-hoc basis
is a kludge.

there have been various posts on the web 
about dealing with this under debian but
I have not seen anything for FC.  Thanks.

I just noticed that if the panels are
hidden by enabling (and using) the hide
buttons, the results are much more satisfactory
than when enabling auto-hide.  Still feels
like a cludge but it works better.

Fixed in metacity 2.15.x.  (FC5 used metacity 2.14.x)  See
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=343115.  Affected lots of apps besides
just acroread.
Comment 3 Søren Sandmann Pedersen 2006-09-20 16:28:37 EDT
In other words: should be fixed in rawhide.
