kpdf: control-plus key causes page rotation

Post#1 by rnport » 21 May 2011, 08:15

While viewing pdf files with kpdf, control-plus (control with +) key combination generally causes font to enlarge. In v1rc1-32bit it causes page to rotate by 90 degrees. Has anyone else also got same problem ?

I am using porteus-v1.0-rc1 on a desktop machine. I wanted to know if other people have tried this (control with plus key to enlarge font) and faced similar problem ? If it working alright on other computers then there must be some problem with my installation.

On netbook, control-plus key combination has no effect (no increase in font and no rotation). Control-minus key combination works perfectly (smaller font, ie smaller zoom). The psinfo link is http://pastebin.com/KrbrGznx

Control key with mouse wheel works well to increase or decrease page size. But I do not have mouse wheel on netbook. Someone will need to correct this problem because easy viewing of pdf files is very important. Control-plus key combination is not working when pdf files are opened in konqueror or with kpdf (they both appear the same). One has to change page size through the zoom button on tool bar.
