Stuck in fullscreen can't toggle out. (xubuntu, 20. 04. 1 LTS)

Asked by Jovan Bozuta on 2020-12-25

I went into full-screen trough window menu and now I'm stuck, F11 doesn't work (if i press it quickly it seems like it's trying to toggle but something snap's it back), I tried ordering it to tile but no success, it seems like a bug or something else crashed, but not sure.

Also tryed removing it and installing it again. But I am still stuck.

Ubuntu version 20. 04. 1 LTS, xubuntu flavor.

Hi, yeah sry should have done that on my own.

So while I just figured out that when I remove qpdfview, the .config files in (~/.config/qpdfview/) stay so it was keeping its last settings when I reinstalled it, so I just deleted them before I did a fresh install. And it worked, but I won't be trying the fullscreen I don't need it really, just wanted a bit more margins for the screenshot.

Btw it's a great pdf viewer, it is really speeding up my work for how light and efficient it is!
