Dock options shortcut key not working

Asked by Luong on 2016-12-14

I really dont know why but my dock options (Outline, Properties, Thumnails, Bookmarks)'s shortcut keys (F6->F9) are all not working. Pressing f6 to f9 doesn't respond. My keyboards are great. There are no malfunction keys ( I have even checked with an external keyboard). I am on vanilla Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS with no other 3rd party programs installed except qpdfview. If you can, please help. Thank you, I love your program so much.

Hello Luong,

sadly, this one of the known issues of the Qt5 integration with Ubuntu's resp. Unity's AppMenu infrastructure. I did report this as a bug, but it still seems unresolved. [1] The only sort-of workaround I can offer is to uninstall the appmenu-qt5 package, but then you will not get global menus in Qt5 applications at all.

Best regards, Adam.

Hello Adam,

Thank you for your fast response. I understood now.
I think I can live with the bug. It's still fine and don't make your program less awesome.

Best regards, Luong.
