Description of problem:
In the full-screen mode of Acrobat Reader, the window is not centered in the
display, so bands at the top and left are off the screen, and the underyling
window manager is visible at the bottom and right.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start acrobat reader and load a PDF file.
2.Type ^L or select View -> Full Screen
Actual Results: As described above.
Expected Results: Full screen mode should black the entire screen and show the
page image centered in the screen.
Same problem with Acrobat 4.05 and 5.05. No problem with Acrobat Reader in
Windows on this machine. Doesn't seem to be a problem with other drivers. This
machine is a Dell Latitude C610.
That would be a bug in Acrobat Reader itself, not in XFree86. XFree86 has
absolutely nothing to do with that sort of thing. Also, we do not ship
acroread, and as such do not support it either. You need to contact Adobe
if you've discovered an acroread bug.
Also, just to note - I use Acroread daily, and do not have this problem.
Any suggestions that I can pass along to Adobe about why this *only* happens
with the ATI Radeon driver?
Yes, you can tell them that it only happens with the Radeon driver, and only
with your computer. All of my primary machines run a variety of Radeon
hardware. The video drivers know nothing about minimized/maximized windows
and the like.
This problem is either an acroread problem or perhaps a problem with your
window manager. I wager it is some interaction problem with your window
manager and acroread. Acroread works perfectly for me in both GNOME and
KDE using sawfish, and kwm. If you're using another WM, that could very
well be the problem.
>If you're using another WM, that could very well be the problem.
Nope, stock Gnome/Sawfish. As you saw, I've asked the xfree86 and valhalla
lists if others have seen the behavior, and I will file with the Acrobat user
BTW, I am somewhat mollified, having discovered that the full-screen window is
moveable using Alt-LeftButton-Drag.
