Okular does not exit full screen mode

See http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=508634

Description : Once the fullscreen mode is turned on in Okular it refuses to go back and hides even the menubar. Even pressing ctrl+shift+f does not help. Closing Okular and opening another file does not help. It stays in that fullscreen mode.

Workaround : I am posting the workaround here. Unfortunately you have to manually edit the okularrc file each time you go fullscreen.

Goto the folder $HOME/.kde/share/config (or a similar folder for kde4- .kde4/share/config/).
Open okularrc in gedit.

It would show something like -

[Desktop Entry]
FullScreen=true

[MainWindow]
Height 900=901
MenuBar=Disabled
State=AAAA/wAAAAD9AAAAAAAABaAAAAOEAAAABAAAAAQAAAAIAAAACPwAAAABAAAAAgAAAAEAAAAWAG0AYQBpAG4AVABvAG8AbABCAGEAcgAAAAAAAAAFoAAAAAAAAAAA
Width 1440=1441

[MainWindow][Toolbar mainToolBar]
Hidden=true

[Notification Messages]
presentationInfo=false



Enable the menubar : MenuBar=Enabled.
Disable fullscreen : FullScreen=false

Fire up Okular again. Now see the okularrc file again. It should read like following.

[Desktop Entry]
FullScreen=false

[MainWindow]
Height 900=901
State=AAAA/wAAAAD9AAAAAAAABaAAAAL9AAAABAAAAAQAAAAIAAAACPwAAAABAAAAAgAAAAEAAAAWAG0AYQBpAG4AVABvAG8AbABCAGEAcgEAAAAAAAAFoAAAAAAAAAAA
Width 1440=1441

Menubar re-appears again and no more fullscreen.
