control keys not working in acroread 5.09 linux


hi everyone,

i have installed acroread 5.09 on my redhat linux 9.0. the acroread works
fine but the only problem is that i am not able to use the following :

Ctrl-O for opening the file diaglog
Ctrl-W for closing the file
Ctrl-P for the print dialog box
Ctrl-L for full screen view.

i have to use the mouse.

i would be grateful if someone could give a solution to this problem.

thanks in advance..

Hmm..

I use xpdf for viewing pdf files, but those keys seemed to work on me when tested (on debian).

This can be some locale issue. There is also some magic in the acroread initialization scripts with some XKEYSYMDB.

Hi,

I know that I have the same problem with acroread when my "verr num" is enabled. If I disable it, I can use Ctrl-F, Ctrl-O...
Hope this help you

Of course,

On my azerty keyboard, I've got on the right a "number keyboard" and at the top I've got three leds (Num lock - Caps lock - Scroll lock). The verr num key enables/disables Num lock led. On my keyboard verr num key is the top left corner key of the "number keyboard part".
I hope you've understood my dark explanations

acroread

dear oliv'


thanks very much.. ur "verr num" is the "num lock" button on my keyboard. when i disabled the "num lock" on my keyboard, the Ctrl-O, Ctrl-W and other control keys worked perfectly well..

simplest solution to this problem..

thanks a lot..

this will now make me to use my mouse as less as possible..
